State Rep. Brian Sims, who verbally bullied a Catholic woman praying outside of an abortion clinic, and offered to pay money to dox young pro-life teens, has now gone into hiding on social media.

Calls for an investigation into Sims have grown since he offered to pay money to get the contact information of pro-life teen girls.
The mother of those girls wrote an op-ed in USA Today.
We were praying a rosary at the corner of the Planned Parenthood property line when a man approached us, yelling angrily at me and at the teenage girls with me. I found out later this man was a state representative of Pennsylvania — Brian Sims.
I stepped in front of him and asked him to speak only to me and said we were not interested any altercations. A few minutes later, as we were packing up to leave, Sims again approached us.
This time, he took things a step further, and was filming us with his phone. Pointing his phone directly at my girls and their friend, he asked for his viewers to expose the identities of the girls in exchange for a donation that he would make to Planned Parenthood.
To be absolutely clear: Sims not only aggressively verbally accosted three minors, he also attempted to doxx them by offering a financial donation in exchange for their personal information. His actions were reprehensible and entirely unbecoming of any adult male, let alone an elected official.
Watch the video:

Democrat State Rep. Brian Sims made waves last weekend when he live-streamed himself harassing an elderly pro-life sidewalk counselor and three teenage girls praying outside a Philadelphia-based Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. Sims hurled insults at the women and girls, mocking their Christianity and their skin color, and tried to find out personal information about them, such as their addresses, so they could be harassed at home. In one of the videos, the Democrat even offers up $100 for the identities of the three teenage girls praying for unborn babies outside the clinic.
Sims’ legislative account appears to still be open to the public, though it has been inactive since May 6.
Some of the latest tweets from Sims’ personal account before closing it off to the public were directed at pro-lifers. “Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values. #BeReal,” read one message from the Democrat. Another mockingly said, “‘Don’t discriminate against our discrimination. Don’t bully our bullies. Don’t hate our haters.’ – P**** Grabbers and Baby Cagers.”
He also posted what was an “apology” video regarding his behavior, though the only apology he offered was one to Planned Parenthood, not those whom he harassed.
Also, the representative’s Instagram account has been inactive since May 1.
On Friday, when pro-lifers gathered in response to Sims outside the same Planned Parenthood abortion clinic where he harassed women and teens, the Democrat was not in attendance, though he was invited. This was expected. And when pro-life media attempted to speak with Mr. Sims at his office, the representative declined. His office building was also manned with a security guard.
It’s just shameful that a publicly-elected representative, guarded by the police, is attacking the citizens of this great state and isn’t even allowing his own constituents to come to meet with him.

“We came over to Representative Sims’ office; you’ll see right behind me there is a police officer guarding the building, which is a little bit ironic because we didn’t have guards for the children and the elderly woman who he harassed and threatened outside the Planned Parenthood facility, but he himself, as a public servant, is getting protected by this police officer,” reported Americans United for Life, adding: “When we tried to go in the building and go up to his office to meet with him, we found out that he is not allowing the public to go into the building; he is not allowing the public to go up to his office; we couldn’t even find out where his office was, what floor it was on. It’s just shameful that a publicly-elected representative, guarded by the police, is attacking the citizens of this great state and isn’t even allowing his own constituents to come to meet with him.”
