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.

Is the Harry Lewis flier that was put on my porch illegal?

Maybe we'll find out this afternoon. 

It doesn't say anywhere that Harry Lewis is a Republican and hints that he is a Democrat.  But it's not illegal because it misleads the voter, Jim Crow style. 

It's not a broadside that says Harry is a nice guy that likes puppies and the other guy likes puppies too, for breakfast. 

It clearly states, "PLEASE VOTE FOR HARRY LEWIS".  With a photo so there's no mistaken identity. 

It's illegal because there is no disclaimer. 

Maybe the ghost of Chester County Republican Committee Area 14 Chair Richard Legree made them do it. He said, "If they don't know it's a law, the law ain't broken.”  So they thought they could get away with it. 

I think it's designed for election day when illegal or not it's too late to do anything about. I think somebody in the Republican Party screwed up and put it out too early. 

Hopefully we can get an injunction that keeps it away from the polls on Tuesday. 

The statement below is for federal elections. This is a federal election. We are voting for a U.S. Congressman in this election. In any case I think the PA election law in this instance is modeled on federal law. 

"When is a Disclaimer Required?
Basic Rule 
Political Committees 
Political committees must include a disclaimer on (1) all "public communications" (defined below), (2) bulk electronic email (defined as electronic mail with more than 500 substantially similar communications) and (3) web sites available to the general public, regardless of whether the communication expressly advocates the election or defeat of a clearly identified candidate, or solicits funds in connection with a federal election (i.e., contributions for a federal candidate or federal political committee). 2 
Individuals and Other Persons 
A disclaimer must appear on any 'electioneering communication' (defined below) and on any public communication by any person that expressly advocates the election or defeat of a clearly identified candidate or solicits funds in connection with a federal election." 

Will Republicans throw Harry Lewis out of the Party? He is telling voters to vote straight Democratic and vote for me.
