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.

Coatesville is a Democratic City. Unlike Ferguson, Missouri we have black representation. In Chester County black representation stops at the city line. Repub. Terence Farrell doesn't count as black representation.
“Municipal elections have far lower voter turnout than national elections. The most likely explanation is that politically motivated parties have kept some elections off cycle to bolster their political power.”
“There are also important effects on turnout. Amir Fairdosi and Jon Rogowksi found that a black Democratic candidate on the ballot in a midterm boosts black turnout. (There is not an equivalent boost for a black Republican.) Lawrence Bobo and Franklin Gilliam found that in areas with high levels of black political empowerment, such as having a black mayor, black political participation is higher."
‘Old boys’ club’
"When citizens lack descriptive representation, as most blacks do, they do not trust their representatives. Some 44 percent of Americans surveyed said that “an old boys’ club” is the best description of our representatives, with only 7 percent saying they are “the best and brightest.” That means the next Ferguson is just around the corner: When a crisis happens, unrepresentative local governments will struggle to retain legitimacy. Even without crisis, vital needs of the community will remain unaddressed by a government that seems unresponsive and aloof."MORE AT:

MILLIONS OF MINORITIES THREATENED BY ELECTORAL PURGE
Former Republican Chester County Commissioner now Secretary of State Carol Aichele administers Pennsylvania's CROSS CHECK PROGRAM.
It’s Jim Crow all over again," says the Rev. Joseph Lowery, who cofounded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King, Jr. Lowery, now 93, says he recognizes in the list of threatened voters a sophisticated new form of an old and tired tactic. “I think [the Republicans] would use anything they can find. Their desperation is rising.”
In case you are not aware, Terrence Farrell is a black Republican
Back in 2008 Chester County Republican election strategy was to keep students at Lincoln University from voting for Barack Obama. Carol Aichele voted along with Terrence Farrell to make the polling place change from Lincoln University to a tiny building in Lower Oxford effective.
“In the Spring of 2010, Kelso married a woman, Linda Falla, who posted as ‘Sigrid’ and served as a senior moderator of White News Now. The couple share the same racist views. Kelso’s wife has posted statements on White News Now such as, ‘blacks hate most things that they can't relate to, even on the most basic level’ and ‘Jews have always been extortionists, since the dawn of time.’ In a July 2010 interview with another prominent racist, Kelso reflected on the perks of a white nationalist marriage saying: ‘a white patriot marriage has this entire additional layer which gives resilience to the marriage … the wife isn’t looking at the husband like a cash cow, she’s looking at him going, you know, he’s got great genes.”
In March 23, 2003, Smith was one of the three members of Keystone State "Skinheads" that attempted to assault a black man who was simply walking down a street in Scranton, PA. The three approached him while holding bricks in their hands and asked him if he had ever been "beat up by a skinhead." As the man ran away and called police with his cellular phone, the three drove by and threw a brick at him while yelling racial slurs. How did they get caught? Simple. They decided to stick around until the cops came. Keith Carney, who was on probation at the time, could not get out of jail on the high bond they posted on him, but Steve Monteforte and Smith had their people pony up for them and they managed to stay free. In the end, he still had to do some time though.STEVE SMITH - ONE PEOPLE'S PROJECT
And then Republicans took "Eisenhower" away.
And they made it "Reagan Republicans".

Is Chester County, "TRUE DETECTIVE" Louisiana With Fox Hunters? Cuyler Walker is part of that world.
I know some of the stories here in Chester County that people don't want to talk about. I knew two people that watched Zack Walker burning just outside of Coatesville in 1911. One man's face was red from anger and in a rage when he told me someone that I knew pushed Zack Walker back into the fire. He carried that rage a very long time. Memory can keep forgiveness at bay.
People can do terrible things. I can sort of identify. I can relate to "True Detective".
The sordid stories, the things we do to each other cut across social, ethnic and financial groups.
The graceful beauty of horses, riders wearing red suits across rolling green fields make a pretty picture, but there can be something ugly hidden from view.
There is ugly and beauty, darkness and light within all of us. In True Detective, Matthew McConaughey’s character, Rust Cohe says; “The world needs bad men. We keep other bad men from the door.”
I was on to him.
He’s been in prison. Back out of prison and working as a custodian at local parks.
Nice job for a pedophile, don’t you think?
Another quote from True Detective:
“There is no such thing as forgiveness. People just have short memories.” – Rust Cohle
I don’t know. Maybe it’s still in there and a sound or a smell can awaken that memory.

Recent Republican Party history:
“During Mr. Rubino's tenure, party candidates were selected by a show of hands, and Mr. Rubino sat at the podium overlooking his flock, noting who did not vote his way. If someone bucked the system, it was widely understood that a relative or in-law holding a county patronage job might find himself suddenly unemployed...
Then, in 1977, Mr. Rubino pleaded guilty to having extorted $6,400 from architects who were awarded a $130,000 contract to convert a former West Chester hospital into a county government annex…He ultimately served 4 1/2 months of a six- month sentence in a federal penitentiary, and he was ordered to do community-service work at the Coatesville Veterans Administration Hospital upon his release. As part of Mr. Rubino's plea agreement, prosecutors read into the record statements that the FBI had taken from businessmen and politicians who had dealt with Mr. Rubino. They indicated that he had established set prices for those doing business with the county, ranging from milk supplies to the leases on court offices. Some of the money went to the county GOP.”
CHESTER COUNTY SHERIFF BUNNY WELSH IS AMONG THE LEADERSHIP OF RICHARD MACK'S ANTI-GOVERNMENT CONSTITUTIONAL SHERIFFS AND PEACE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION
"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”

Ebola panic is misplaced. Hospital Acquired Infections cause 99,000 deaths each year. I got a VRE infection at Brandywine Hospital.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated roughly 1.7 million hospital-associated infections, from all types of bacteria combined, cause or contribute to 99,000 deaths each year. Other estimates indicate 10%, or 2 million, patients a year become infected, with the annual cost ranging from $4.5 billion to $11 billion. In the USA, the most frequent type of infection hospitalwide is urinary tract infection (36%), followed by surgical site infection (20%), and bloodstream infection and pneumonia (both 11%).[needs update]”

O what a tangled web Harry weaves, when Harry first practices to deceive. Democrats for Harry Lewis signs.
|HARRY LEWIS IS A REPUBLICAN|
"This is not illegal but it’s tricky...
Now I understand why that was done that way because this is a political tactic as I understand it.
Because they figure if you can’t really decide who this person is what we’ll do is we’ll vote color. We’ll see the word Democrat. We'll see an African American and we'll vote for them... Nobody’s going to pour a whole lot of money in you so you can get in office and do what you think you want to do. Republicans don’t put a lot of money into a person for them to get in there and vote Democrat. And to further Democratic ideologies and platforms. - Fonz Newsuan
We're just going to keep that real. Because if you believe that, like Dr. Dan K. Williams will tell us in church, “You go to bed with your boots on.” We don’t go to bed with our boots on.
