Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
Public Corruption in Chester County, PA
I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

When is the news media going to wake up to the fact that the Bush/Rove alleged politicization of the USDoJ may be the greatest boon to organized crime since prohibition? In my opinion Bush/Rove has made political hacks US District Attorneys in some of their Regional USDA appointments. Their mission appears to be the investigation of Democrats while pulling investigations of Republicans. The result has been a alleged mass resignation of some very good prosecutors and the demoralization of the USDoJ.
Very few State district attorneys and city district attorneys have the coglioni to go after mob connected public officials so it becomes a staple of a US Attorneys job. I think that the mess that Bush and Rove made of the USDoJ has made organized crime much more profitable in the USA.
If you want to fight crime, vote straight Democratic.

The Political Specter at Justice
Attorney General Michael Mukasey was supposed to end the cynical politicization of the Justice Department. But the sudden disbanding of the United States attorney’s public corruption office in Los Angeles looks like business as usual.
There were a number of sensitive inquiries under way at the high-profile office, including an investigation of Representative Jerry Lewis, the powerful California Republican who directed hundreds of millions of dollars in earmarks to favored government contractors while chairman of the appropriations committee.
Representative Lewis denied any wrongdoing as investigators tracked ties between windfall government contracts and lucrative campaign donations. One former staff specialist on earmarks crossed over to become a potent lobbyist for contractors. The inquiry appears to have lagged during the administration’s strategic reshuffling of United States attorneys.
