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.

I believe that huge wealthy oil corporations should at least pay some tiny portion of the taxes they are supposed to be paying

and not leave “little people” and small business supporting all infrastructure in the United States.

Commonwealth corporate taxes for giant corporations are a not very funny joke. Even at the Federal level giant corporations pay little or no taxes. According to the Government Accountability Office “two out of every three United States corporations paid no federal income taxes from 1998 through 2005.”


Part of the reason “little people” pay most of the taxes in the USA is that huge corporations pay close to zero taxes in the USA. I think they should pay some of the taxes and not jump through the tax loopholes with billions of unpaid taxes in their pockets. 

Rendell, aide urge transportation funding boost is the title to an article in today’s Daily Local News. That transportation funding could have a direct effect here in Coatesville. I believe that the primary obstacle to strengthening our crumbling transportation infrastructure is a corrupt and dysfunctional political structure in our state legislature and by not voting for taxes on oil companies the legislators are responding to the big money corporations put in their pockets and ignoring their constituents.


Paul Krugman wrote about the US Congress and Senate when he wrote “it’s about a dysfunctional and corrupt political culturein Today’s New York Times but I believe and even more dysfunctional and corrupt political culture now exists in our Pennsylvania Commonwealth Legislative bodies. 

Our only recourse as “small people” is to vote those legislators out of office.
