Republicans trying to rig the vote in Florida

So what are Republicans doing to try to ensure Florida goes their way in November? Well, this:

Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) has ordered the state to purge all "non-citizens" from the voting rolls prior to November's election. But that list compiled by the Scott administration is so riddled with errors that, in Miami-Dade County alone, hundreds of U.S. citizens are being told they are ineligible to vote, ThinkProgress has learned exlusively. 

And specifically targeting those likely to vote against them:

An analysis of the state-wide list by the Miami Herald found that "Hispanic, Democratic and independent-minded voters are the most likely to be targeted" as ineligible by the list. Conversely, "whites and Republicans are disproportionately the least-likely to face the threat of removal." 

In other words, it's just Republican being Republicans.
