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.

"knowingly misappropriating clients’ trust funds"

Is this the same Leslie Smallwood that made the presentation for her company "Mosaic Development Partners, LLC" at to the Coatesville City Council on Monday, April 27, 2009?

Admitted: 1981; Elkins Park (Pennsylvania)
Disbarment - 176 N.J. 506 (2003)

The Supreme Court of New Jersey held that disbarment was the only appropriate discipline for an attorney who was disbarred in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for knowingly misappropriating clients’ trust funds in the amount of at least $139,500."

  1. Sounds like a small time version of Bernie Madoff.

  2. Moondancer -it's too bad slander doesn't seem to apply to these blogs. I've researched this as well and it seems odd that "misappropriating $139,000" results in a what the PA site claims was a temporary and voluntary disbarment. Seems like there really isn't isn't enough information here beyond the fact that no criminal or civil charges were even brought. Clearly, there is far more to this story than meets the eye.

    Yet - you are willing to publicly - yet anonymously - compare her to Madoff.

    One thing certain - your character is clearly wanting.

  3. There was an emergency temporary suspension of Leslie A Smallwood on June 14, 2001 and a permanent disbarment of Leslie A Smallwood, AKA, Leslie Smallwood-Lewis, AKA Leslie Smallwood Robinson, AKA Leslie Robinson
    on June 13, 2002.

    Smallwood's co-council in the involved case was Michael T Whitlow who had an office in Coatesville until he passed away. Several people involved in the City of Coatesville government frequented Whitlow's office when Whitlow was living and can still be found there.
