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 Coatesville School Board's vote to accept resignations an under the rug sweep?

If the school board fired Como and Donato there would be a trial. Maybe some school board members are concerned about what could come out in court.
There could be much more but here's a for instance:

New admin office, clinic is wrong on so many levels for struggling district
By Mike McGann, Editor, The Times
“Of course, we got the denial that the board had approved buying the Cumberland Insurance Building in Sadsbury for $3.45 million, but merely approved negotiations to purchase the building. Since it would appear that the price for the building is set, one wonders what the forthcoming negotiations are about — what snack to serve at the closing?...
The building is currently owned by Cumberland Insurance Company. The Chief Operating Officer of Cumberland is Rick Ritter. Yes, the same Rick Ritter that is currently Vice President of the Board of Education and chair of the Finance Committee.
Now of course, it’s entirely possible this is a completely innocent fact. But, let’s be honest: it looks like hell. Common sense dictates that buying a building in a depressed real estate market from a member of the Board of Education is, at best, a tough pill to swallow. At worst, it’s going to have people calling for a criminal investigation.”
CASD building purchase is adisaster waiting to happen

That little padlock you see when you do banking on the Internet is permanently hacked open. Thanks NSA.

"NSA is able to infiltrate the computer a person uses to sync their iPhone. Mini-programs, so-called "scripts," then enable additional access to at least 38 iPhone features." 
They also cracked the "uncrackable" Blackberry code.  The Blackberry code is the main reason to use a Blackberry. NSA put Blackberry out of business. 
NSA Can Spy on Smart Phone Data 
SPIEGEL has learned from internal NSA documents that the US intelligence agency has the capability of tapping user data from the iPhone, devices using Android as well as BlackBerry, a system previously believed to be highly secure.
There is no Internet security in the U.S. 
NSA forced Yahoo, Google, Apple, Microsoft and other US based companies to put back door access to their programs (such as Microsoft Office) that NSA can exploit. 
It's party time for corporate spies and Internet thieves.  Thanks to the NSA a hacker who is good enough will find the backdoors and steal from corporations and individuals.

The implications of the prior week's reporting of NSA stories continue to grow

Tom Corbett fires a "Anti-Gay Rights Hail Mary Pass" to his Chester County Republican friends.

WPA (Works Progress Administration) jobs the Republican way:

Corbett and the Chester County Republican buddies know they will lose this case. But they will make truckloads of money doing it.  

You gotta give Corbett credit for chutzpa. This is a resourceful way of making money for his wealthy Republican friends while drumming up political support from the right wing nutcase end of his party.
