Why do you think Eric Holder ordered the Shabazz case closed?


Shabazz made national news in 2008 when Department of Justice brought a voter intimidation suit against him & a NBPP accomplice. They got in trouble for wearing Black Panther uniforms & brandishing a police-style baton outside a Philadelphia precinct during the Presidential election. Shabazz was charged on violations to the Voting Rights Act. But on May 29, 2009, against the advice of prosecutors who had worked on the case, the Department of Justice ordered the suit dropped, even though Shabazz and the other defendants in the case refused to appear in federal court. Why?
