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.

Court Summary
Docket Sheet

Published: Saturday, January 09, 2010

“On Nov. 19, 2009, city police charged Tinson, 51, of Coatesville, with criminal conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance, manufacture of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal use of communication facility following a lengthy investigation that took place last summer…
Police filed charges against Johnson on Dec. 1; she surrendered to Hines on Dec. 3. The charges against Johnson include criminal conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance, manufacture of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Wheatcraft agreed to withdraw a drug-dealing charge.
When the arrests were made, Johnson and Tinson lived together in the 700 block of Coates Street. It was unclear Friday whether Johnson and Tinson still reside together.
Also at the time of the arrest, Johnson was working as an administrative assistant in state Rep. Tim Hennessey's Coatesville office.
Hennessey, R-26th, of North Coventry, said in December that he had informed the House Republican Caucus of the charges. Although Johnson works in Hennessey's office, the caucus is her employer and will decide what happens to her as a result of the charges.”

Former Coatesville City Council member Patsy Ray counts Lisa Johnson and Hennessy's Legislative Assistant Linda Lavender as her friends.

When she was asked if she went to Tim Hennessey's office former Coatesville City Councilperson Patsy Ray said, "I go there every day and I can go there any time I want.”

Hmmm, I remember another friend of Patsy Ray’s. The one that she wrote about in a letter to Common Pleas Judge Howard F. Riley Jr. It was in support of her drug dealer friend:
