No, it does not rise to the level of physical intimidation, but it is clearly designed to suppress republican votes.
Of course, most republicans are not stupid enough to fall for it, and I find it not a little amusing that those perpetrating this obvious fraud think they are.
Fla. Republicans receiving fake ineligibility letters aimed at suppressing their vote
The Florida Department of State’s Division of Elections is investigating a number of fraudulent letters sent to voters in the state questioning their citizenship and voter eligibility, in a possible attempt to keep them home on Election Day.
“The Florida Department of State unequivocally opposes all attempts at voter fraud or intimidation and will pursue every avenue to ensure free, fair and open elections for all eligible voters,” Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner said in a statement. “Voter fraud and intimidation can deny voters their voice in government and will not be tolerated.”
The statement alerted the public of the fraudulent letters, which claim to be from Florida election officials and imply that the recipient might be ineligible to vote.
Charles Callaghan, a Republican from Ponte Vedra, received one of the fraudulent letters Saturday.
“Basically, when I read the letter, I got the impression that I was not going to be able to vote, because my citizenship was being questioned,” Callaghan told The Daily Caller. “I wasn’t quite sure why it would be, because I was born in the United States, and I’ve always been a United States citizen, and nothing has changed in my life … that would cause my citizenship to be called into question.”
Callaghan noticed that his letter lacked a return address and included faulty contact information and a Seattle, Washington postmark.

Clearly the people behind this puny effort are not exactly the brightest bulbs in the chandelier, as they were stoopid enough to send one of their bogus letters to one Mr. Lenny Curry, who just happens to be the chairman of the Florida Republican Party.
The real howler is that the FBI is “investigating.”
LOL – Yeah, we will see just how far that gets.
Pardon me for refraining from holding my breath.
