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.

I watched the Wereth Eleven-About the all African American 333d U.S. Field Artillery Battalion

As a boy who grew up in the 1940 in a town that sent many people off to war including several of my uncles, Hitler and the Nazis were not exactly boyhood heros. 

In my 72 years I came across a number of people who think Hitler was not such a bad guy. One "Hitler wasn't a bad guy" statement came from a former artillery soldier in Hitler's army. Sort of understandable. 

The other times it was from just plain right wing folks in America. That's harder for me to swallow. 

I strongly suspect that John Birch Society Chapter Leader and former Coatesville resident Pat Sellers is one of those Hitler loving people

Pat Sellers would have had a much better chance of winning in 2014, Republicans made a dramatic slide to the extremist right wing.
It seems to me that being called a Nazi would not insult Pat Sellers. 

Pat Sellers stood at the podium in the Coatesville City Council Meeting Room just after Dick and Ricky Saha shouted "Nazi" at Coatesville City Council member Bill Chertok. I suppose he was trying to defend the Sahas when he said "Hitler wasn't so bad..." caught himself and stopped speaking. Dick Saha apologized in a Daily Local News article. Ricky Saha refused to apologize in that same article. 

Pat Sellers first run for Congress was in 1996. 

He had support and the blessing of Larry Pratt. 

Larry Pratt is a gun rights extremist who also advocates a theocratic society based on Old Testament civil and religious laws, and a pivotal figure in the militia movement.

Both of the Patrick Henry Sellers for Congress correspond to the rise of anti-government militia groups in the United States. 


Pat ran against Jim Gerlach in 2010.

In 2014 Jim Gerlach was out of the race. He retired. It seemed like a good chance for Pat Sellers to make another go at running for Congress. 

In just those 4 years Republican politics made a dramatic slide to extremist right wing. Pat Sellers would have had a much better chance of winning in 2014.
