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.

State Rep. Tim Hennessey’s business manager Lisa Johnson’s discovery hearing was held today.

Her “crack cocaine” trial is continued to September 27, 2010. John Tinson, a City of Coatesville Codes Officer, was arrested on similar charges and his trial was also continued until September 27, 2010.

Tinson allegedly, as of July 31st , is no longer on the City payroll. Johnson's employment seems to be up to the “House Republican Caucus”. Hmmm. doesn’t her paycheck say “Commonwealth of Pennsylvania” at the top? I am well aware of what the Daily Local News article below says about Tinson's employment status. 

Lisa Johnson presided as Judge of Elections in Coatesville’s Fifth Ward in the Primary Election on Tuesday, May 18, 2010. Although Ms. Johnson is charged with multiple felonies she was still Judge of Elections in the Spring Primary Elections. According to her court records she lives now in Thorndale, PA not in Coatesville’s Fifth Ward.

Any bets on Lisa Johnson still being Judge of Elections in Coatesville’s Fifth Ward on November 2nd?

Any bets on whether both trials will be continued until say, November 3, 2010?

Right now Johnson has a "defense team" consisting of Thomas Gerald Bellwoar Jr., Esq.and Mr. Evan Kelly, Esq.  Mr. Tinson is represented by Christian J. Hoey, Esq. 

Their trials seem to be linked. Lisa Johnson's trial is on "09/27/2010 9:00 am Courtroom 12 Judge Anthony A. Sarcione".  John Tinson's trial is on "09/27/2010 9:00 am Courtroom 12 Judge Anthony A. Sarcione". I think it's  a long shot chance that Tinson and Johnson will be judged innocent of the charges against them. But I think that if they are innocent of the charges, the City of Coatesville will be stuck with Tinson as a Codes Officer and Johnson as Coatesville State Rep's business manager. 

Of course the results of the Election between Rep. Tim Hennessey and Fern Kaufman also have an effect on whether Ms. Johnson will be employed as a State Representative's business manager.
