Inspector General Investigates DOJ
The Justice Department’s failure to prosecute the 2008 Black Panther voter intimidation case has prompted the Department of Justice’s internal watchdog to launch an investigation into the DOJ’s enforcement of civil rights laws.
In a letter addressed to Smith and Wolf, the Justice Department’s Inspector General Glenn Fine announced his department's intention to investigate the DOJ. “This review will examine, among other issues, the type of cases brought by the Voting Section and any changes in these types of cases over time, any changes in Voting Section enforcement policies or procedures over time, whether the Voting Section has enforced the civil rights laws in a non-discriminatory manner; and whether any Voting Section employees have been harassed for participating in the investigation of prosecution of particular matters.”
However, Fine emphasized that his office does not possess the legal authority to investigate the Black Panther voter intimidation case specifically, but that his investigation will look “more broadly at the overall enforcement of civil rights laws by the Voting Section,” which includes “information about cases such as the New Black Panther matter and others.”
Fine adds that the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility does have the authority to investigate the Black Panther case, and is in fact “near the end” of its analysis. Likewise, the United States Commission on Civil Rights is in the process of investigating the case.

How can it be intimidation you asked?
Simply by "those" guys standing at the entrance with a club could easily cause certain voters to turn around and drive away and not even vote..
You even posing that question at all gives it away totally which party you belong to...
