It must be Libertarian heaven.
Somalia is Libertarianism brought to life. I wonder what Pat Toomey and Rand Paul think of Somalia as Libertarian Heaven.
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.
Gubernatorial candidate Tom Corbett had an awkward encounter at his campaign stop in the Lehigh Valley yesterday.According to the blog "Repatriot Radio," Corbett exploded at a man who asked about the federal lawsuit Corbett finds himself currently embroiled, specifically a possible federal investigation into the activities surrounding Corbett's Financial Enforcement Section:"Anyway I asked the question Mr Corbett if you win tomorrow how will you handle your campaign and your subsequent Federal trial for alleged fraud in the Attorney Generals office. Tom Corbett got so irate he came off the platform through the crowd and confronted me to my face on the issue. All he said was that the info I was referring to was fraudulent and put out by the Sam Rohrer campaign. He shook his finger in my face and told me to go back to Sam and get my facts straight."(Repatriot Radio 5/17/10)
“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.”When she was asked if she went to Tim Hennessey's office former Coatesville City Councilperson Patsy Ray said, "I go there and I can go there every day"
“The city put its hope last year in Lester Spellman, a music marketing guru from the Philadelphia area, for the first eight months of the year. Then officials fired him, claiming he failed to meet expectations. But it came months after Spellman admitted making an unauthorized $380,000 wire transfer to the embattled
Spellman's ouster paved the way for his replacement, Harry Walker, a man whom the city was already paying $50,000 for a strategic plan for economic development. Two weeks after he got the job,
was fired, but the city continues to pay his tab for the consultant work. Walker
The flip-flopping did nothing to advance Newburgh's growth, the city's political minority agree. At the end of the year when all the shouting was done, the city was left with one completed project – a fast food restaurant on Broadway.”
