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.

About Republican Terence Farrell’s fundraiser in Coatesville and Fern Kaufman's campaign

The newspapers and are lit up with articles and editorials about the Chester County Republican Committee’s successful attempt to block black (Democratic) voters in the Lower Oxford (56% turnout in Lower Oxford-80% Countywide average). It was an attempt to prevent the election of Democrat Tom Houghton, he won anyway.

For what I think are very good reasons GOP Chester County Commissioner Terence Farrell is alleged to be extremely unpopular among black voters. Republican Terence Farrell ran for Chester County Commissioner in 2007.  Patsy Ray was the President of the Coatesville City Council back then. Ms. Ray ran for election as a Democrat and I believe is still registered as a Democrat. In 2007 Republican Terence Farrell had a fundraiser at the Masonic Hall in Coatesville. So called "Democrat" Patsy Ray allegedly was the MC for Republican Terence Farrell’s fundraiser. In Chester County politics someone like Patsy Ray is called a "decoy".

Real Democrat Fern Kaufman is running against Republican Tim Hennessey in Coatesville. I expect shenanigans in Hennessey's district. They may have already begun.

For instance who is paying for Hennessey’s Office Manager Lisa Johnson’s team of very expensive attorneys in Johnson’s trial for allegedly manufacturing and distributing crack cocaine?

More recently there is the flap over a sign for Fern Kaufman’s campaign headquarters at 5th Avenue and Lincoln Highway in Coatesville.  Sign wars are a staple in Chester County politics. I think more serious stuff will be a part of this election. That's because I think this election has a link to the "pharmaceutical" business in Coatesville. 

Hmmm. I wonder if accused crack dealer Lisa Johnson is going to be the judge of elections in Coatesville's Fifth Ward this November like she was in the spring Primary Elections of this year. 

Hennessey's Office Manager Lisa Johnson was arraigned in January of 2010. Her original trial date was April 19, 2010. Ms. Lisa Johnson was the Judge of Elections in Coatesville's Fifth Ward in the  Primary Election that was held on May 18, 2010. Johnson's crack trial date was continued several times and now there is a pre-trial discovery hearing on September 1, 2010. 

I expect that the trial date will be continued until after November 2, 2010.

Patsy Ray allegedly goes to lunch with her friends Lisa Johnson and Linda Lavender frequently at State Representative Tim Hennessey's office in Coatesville. (Ms. Johnson may still be employed as Hennessey's Office Manager.) That's the connection between former Coatesville City Council President Rev. Patsy Ray and State Rep. Hennessey. 

You can listen to Rev. Ray say that she goes to Rep. Tim Hennessey's office here:
