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.

Demolition for the new Coatesville Train Station

The demolition phase for the site preparation of the Coatesville Train Station appears to be nearly done:

It looks like the Coatesville Train Station is proceeding on schedule. 

"It is currently anticipated that the new station will be in service sometime in 2015."

"Goddamn IRS don't respect nothin"

John Boehner could have said that. 

Actually James Caan as Sonny Corleone said this: 

 "Goddamn FBI don't respect nothin". 

“The Godfather” was fairly accurate. Mafia families did complain bitterly about FBI profiling. 

I would be suspicious of Mafia "social welfare" organizations. Why can't the IRS be suspicious of anti-tax Tea Party "social welfare" organizations? 

By the way I don’t think there is anything to stop the Genovese crime family or any Mafia organization from forming a 501(c)(4) to influence elections. And it would be tax-exempt. 

As it stands the 501 (C) (4) political organizations are a huge invitation for political corruption. And Boehner is backing them.

Across Coatesville Democratic voter turnout was 5.785%

In Coatesville, Republicans are well past endangered and are on the list for extinction within a decade, they don’t matter.  

Most voters are every four years voters. They vote for the President. That’s nice but national elections are only important nationally. The really important elections, the elections that affect people’s lives directly, are local elections.  

We can do better than a 5.785% Democratic voter turnout. 

The breakdown is: 

  •  First Ward - D-------2.58%
  •  Second Ward - D---- 6.08%
  •  Third Ward- D ------5.62%
  •  Fourth Ward 1- D--- 5.85%
  •  Forth Ward 2- D ----8.38%
  •  Fifth Ward- D------- 6.20%

Why did Pat Sellers giggle when he talked about Patsy Ray winning the election?

Pat Sellers campaigned for Patsy Ray.  Pat giggled when he said "I never thought she could win."

When Patsy Ray was elected to Coatesville City Council I think that Pat Sellers got the black city council of  his dreams. 

Why would someone who reads the American Renaissance (July 2000, scroll down to see 1st comment) help to elect Patsy Ray? Warning have a barf bag handy if you read the rest of the issue.

"Blacks and whites are different. When blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western civilization — any kind of civilization — disappears."

Concerning Former Leader of Guatemala Guilty of Genocide Against Mayan Group

Pat Sellers in his 2010 run for PA's 6th Congressional District

I believe that more than any single person Pat Sellers is responsible for the election of Coatesville's "Bloc of Four" City Council.  In his 1996 run for Congress the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal (https://www.box.com/shared/9a8aborcl4reported that Pat Sellers “sought Pratt’s support because of his expertise on gun issues”.
 Pratt's book "Armed People Victorious". Is based in part on his experience with "death squads" in Guatemala. "Armed People Victorious" is the "bible" of the American Militia movement. 

Eight Lanes Out  
Larry Pratt, 58  
Larry Pratt, a gun rights absolutist whose Gun Owners of America (GOA) has been described as "eight lanes to the right" of the National Rifle Association, may well be the person who brought the concept of citizen militias to the radical right.  
In 1990, Pratt wrote a book, Armed People Victorious, based on his study of "citizen defense patrols" used in Guatemala and the Philippines against Communist rebels — patrols that came to be known as death squads for their murderous brutality.  
Picturing these groups in rosy terms, Pratt advocated similar militias in the United States — an idea that finally caught on when he was invited for a meeting of 160 extremists, including many famous white supremacists, in 1992.  
It was at that meeting, hosted in Colorado by white supremacist minister Pete Peters, that the contours of the militia movement were laid out... 

"GUATEMALA CITY — A Guatemalan court on Friday found Gen. Efraín Ríos Montt, the former dictator who ruled Guatemala during one of the bloodiest periods of its long civil war, guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity."
 I think Sellers continues to influence Chester & Lancaster County Republican Party politics.

I just don’t want to see any more City Council members that see nothing wrong with dealing drugs.

There is a Coatesville City Council election coming up on Tuesday May 21st. Patsy Ray is on the ballot in Coatesville's Second Ward and At Large. 
There are people here in Coatesville who seem to believe that selling drugs now and then to make ends meet is something poor people need to do.
One of those people allegedly is Coatesville City Council person Patsy Ray. 

“As stated above, we don't know Murray. We didn't know her growing up and we don't know her now. We do, however, know of what was proven beyond a reasonable doubt in court and that she is a drug dealer. 
But City Council President Patsy Ray defended Murray's reputation, going so far as to write the letter. The letter was part of a pre-sentencing investigation. 
"I can confirm that (Murray) is a woman of great integrity, (and) is extremely dedicated to her family and neighbors ... I have not seen anything wrong with her behavior," Ray wrote in the Nov. 14, 2006, letter. 
In the letter, Ray identified herself as a minister and councilwoman. Ray said she has known Murray for 15 years through the Home Gospel Mission. 
"People in (Murray's) neighborhood look up to her for help ... In her neighborhood she was always the first to call the cops to make (sure) her neighborhood was (safe)," Ray wrote. 
How can that be? Could someone dealing drugs from their home be the same person calling the police to make sure her neighborhood was safe? 
In addition to the dozens of Coatesville residents upset with Ray's actions, even a county assistant district attorney questioned the appropriateness of an elected official coming to the aid of a drug dealer. 
At the sentencing, Assistant District Attorney Michelle Frei challenged Ray's support for Murray. 
"She (Ray) sees nothing wrong with the defendant's behavior," Frei said. "It is ironic that everybody seems to ignore the seriousness of the defendant's conduct." 
Frei said that Murray "contributed to the demise" of Coatesville.”
