The outcry surrounding Pennsylvania state Representative Brian Sims’ haranguing of anti-abortion rights protesters outside a Planned Parenthood clinic continues as thousands call for him to resign and a “Pro-Life Rally Against Bullying” event is organized in response.
Sims was condemned for two videos he posted on social media showing him confronting protesters outside a Center City Planned Parenthood facility in Philadelphia, which critics said amounted to harassment and intimidation.
One video showed him approaching a woman and three teenage girls and offers to donate $100 to Planned Parenthood if any of his online viewers could identify them, a practice known as doxxing. A second video showed Sims berating a woman outside the same clinic for several minutes. During the clip, Sims also asked his online viewers if they knew where she lived so he could organize a protest outside her home.
Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio described Sims’ behavior as “outrageous” while announcing the party had urged launching a criminal investigation against the lawmaker.
“Elected officials should not use their positions of power to harass citizens who are peacefully protesting. I hope our state and federal prosecutors will undertake review of this matter with the seriousness it deserves and uphold the role for which they were elected to, which demands holding people accountable for their actions,” DiGiorgio said in a statement.
An online petition demanding Sims resign over his “shameful harassment and bullying” has so far attracted more than 8,000 signatures.
