Pennsylvania state Representative, Brian Sims, a Democrat, filmed himself yelling at a woman and her daughters praying outside Planned Parenthood. In the video, he offered $100 to anyone who would step forward and identify the family, which was clearly a threat to create trouble for them in the future. Sims,who thought the fact that mother and daughters where Caucasians was evidence of ill intent, responded to criticism on Twitter by saying: “Bring it, Bible Bullies! You are bigots, sexists, and misogynists and I see right through your fake morals and your broken values.” It is clear from Sims’ actions and words that he is the real bully, misogynist, sexist, and racist. He yells “Shame, Shame” at the Woman, but the real shame is his. It will be interesting to see if Sims is re-elected to the Pennsylvania legislature after this public display.] -GEG
  • Democratic Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims filmed himself yelling at people praying outside a Planned Parenthood.
  • Ashley Garecht, the mother of two girls Sims filmed, said in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation that Sims’s behavior left her daughters and their friend shaken.
  • The group was praying outside the Planned Parenthood during the Thursday before Easter.

The mother of two girls Democratic Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims filmed said he targeted her daughters and their friend with anger, leaving them shaken after he offered a reward for their information in a video posted to social media.

Ashley Garecht said she had been to the southeastern Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood about five times before the incident took place. On Holy Thursday of Easter weekend, she brought her 13- and 15-year-old daughters and their friend with her to pray outside the abortion clinic.

Garecht told The Daily Caller News Foundation Sims approached her and her children twice, the first time without a camera, but “yelling pretty aggressively” and focusing mainly on the teenaged girls. Garecht said she repeatedly stepped between him and the girls and asked him not to speak to them. (RELATED: Pennsylvania Rep Offers Reward To Anyone Who Will Dox Pro-Life Teens In His Video)

“We weren’t trying to talk to anyone coming in or out of the clinic,” she told TheDCNF. “In candor, what concerned me was that he was yelling mostly at the girls.”

She said Sims left for about 10 minutes and returned with a camera as Garecht and the three girls were preparing to leave. He then proceeded to film the girls and encourage viewers to send him information on them.

“What we’ve got here is a bunch of … pseudo-Christian protesters who’ve been out here shaming young girls for being here,” Sims said in the video as he filmed Garecht and the three girls, before offering a reward for anyone who could provide their information.

“So, here’s the deal, I’ve got $100 to anybody who will identify these three, and I will donate to Planned Parenthood,” Sims said in the video.
