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.

Did Coatesville black leaders opposed to same sex marriage allow Tim Hennessey to win in 2008?

 ""The experience of discrimination among non-white Americans really does kick in," he said." 

His research group's poll of 42,000 Americans last year showed that about half of blacks nationally oppose same-sex marriage, more than any other racial and ethnic group. In Mississippi, where Williams Barnes chairs the legislative black caucus, nearly seven in 10 blacks disapprove, the survey found. 

But it also found that two-thirds of blacks polled nationally objected to allowing small business owners to refuse services to LGBT people on religious grounds...

"We know what it's like once you allow racism and hatred to be codified and to be written into the law," said Reverend William Barber II, president of the NAACP in North Carolina.

"They see it not just as a LGBT issue but as a Pandora's box being opened back up to allow discrimination," said Erik Fleming, a former black state legislator who is now director of advocacy and policy for the American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi, where a judge has rejected its challenge to the state's law. 

"There's an old saying: 'We’ve seen this movie before.'"

Black leaders emerge as powerful allies in LGBT fight in South

There are some local Coatesville area black ministers opposed to same sex marriage.

That and some alleged money going into ministers pockets more than any other issue allowed State Rep. Tim Hennessey to win in Coatesville and upend Fern Kaufman’s chances to win the election and keep another Democrat out of state government. I believe that in both 2008 and 2010 Fern Kaufman expected Coatesville black voters to take her over the top. Instead black voters chose Hennessey.
The narrowest victory went to state Rep. Tim Hennessey, R-26th, who beat Democrat Fern Kaufman by 1,303 votes, or 4 percent. 

Remember Tim Hennessey?

Hennessey allegedly got off with only a reprimand from the House Republican Caucus. It would have ended most political careers.

When she was Coatesville City Council president Patsy Ray spent almost every afternoon in Tim Hennessey’s Coatesville office with now convicted felon, Hennessey’s office manager Lisa Johnson, present day Coatesville City Council President Linda Lavender Norris who was then Hennessey's Coatesville legislative assistant and is now part time in Hennessy’s Pottstown office. I called Hennessey’s Coatesville office “City Hall East”.

I believe that Tim Hennessy is has been and still is indirectly and directly involved in City of Coatesville business.

I think Hennessey is more involved in City of Coatesville business than our present State Rep. Harry Lewis.

Keep in mind that it’s illegal for a state rep to be directly involved with a local government.
