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.

Republicans use black men to promote their racist policies. They used Terence Farrell in 2008. Is Harry Lewis next?

Terence Farrell was used by the Republican Party as the means to move the Lower Oxford Polling Place from Lincoln University to a tiny room in a building between a major highway and operating railroad to stop black students voting for Barack Obama. 
Now the Republicans have a black man in the running for State Representative in Pennsylvania’s new 74th District to be their mouthpiece for their racist policies.  

They can point to him and say, “See…a black man said it.”
Back in 2008 Chester County Republican election strategy was to keep students at Lincoln University from voting for Barack Obama. Terrence Farrell had the polling place moved from Lincoln University to a tiny, tiny building between an operating railroad and a busy highway. Carol Aichele voted along with Terrence Farrell to make the change effective.

Terrence Farrell voted in Lower Oxford. Without his participation the polling place could not have been moved. The reason he gave for moving the polling place from Lincoln University was that a white woman in Lower Oxford did not feel safe at Lincoln University.
It was the Chester County Republican Party’s way of preventing Lincoln University students from voting for Barack Obama in 2008.
"In predominantly white Chester County, Pa., Lower Oxford East Township contains the largest concentration of African-American voters, largely because of Lincoln University, one of the oldest historically African-American universities in the country.

The township made national news following the 2008 presidential election, when some voters were forced to wait literally all day in pouring rain in order to vote. Many voters had to leave without casting their votes, disenfranchised by inadequate polling facilities. Despite numerous warnings before the election that the cramped polling place would cause problems, the County Board of Elections had refused to change the location of the polling place – a tiny community center that could accommodate only two lines of voters, a small number of privacy booths, and a single ballot scanner. And even after the 2008 fiasco, the Board of Elections rejected a petition to move the polling place to the campus of Lincoln University, where it had previously been located for years.”

Lincoln University voters ~many of whom were students supporting Barack Obama~ were forced to stand in line for approximately 5 1/2 to 11 hours to vote on Election Day according the newspaper reports.
