"The authorities" hold the monopoly of force, so there's not really a "greater authority" to appeal to.

So because the government isn't the perpetrator of the intimidation then it wasn't that bad? Functionally speaking what is the difference between government intimidation and an act of intimidation by the general public? You're just one of those wingnuts that thinks the state is the boogey man while ignoring the actual problems.

Not "it wasn't that bad", "it isn't as bad". I want voter intimidation investigated and prosecuted. But when it's the government there isn't likely to be any investigation (if there is any reporting).
