H/T To The Hill
Where were these groups when the New Black Panthers were stationing themselves at the doors of polling places, dressed in black military gear, wearing black sunglasses, and carrying billy clubs? Noooo, this was voter intimidation at all. How do we know? Because the Eric Holder Justice Department said it wasn't, killing an investigation of what seasoned agents said was a "slam dunk" case of the NBP's illegal intimidation voters.
Apparently though, states who have laws requiring voters to produce identification verifying that they are the person that they claim to be IS voter suppression. Having poll watchers to ensure that there are not others like the NBP's at the polls to intimidate voters is also voter suppression.
So, according to these leftists we need U.N. monitors from liberal places like France, and countries who were once part of the Soviet bloc to come in and monitor our elections.

If all of this may seem crazy to you, I say you may be right. Crazy like a fox.
International monitors at US polling spots draw criticism from voter fraud groups
By Alexander Bolton - 10/20/12 12:00 PM ET
United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week. The intervention has drawn criticism from a prominent conservative-leaning group combating election fraud.
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers around the country on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.
