The Pennsylvania state legislator who struck outrage in 2019 when he harassed, and attempted to dox two Christian girls for praying outside of a local Planned Parenthood announced on Monday that he is running for lieutenant governor.
Both the governor and lieutenant governor are separately elected offices in the Pennsylvania primaries, and current Pennsylvania Democratic Lt. gov. John Fetterman said that he will be vacating his office in 2022 to run for Sen. Pat Toomey’s (R-PA) seat in Congress.
Sims made national headlines in 2019 when he harassed a mother and her two teenage daughters while they were publicly praying outside of Planned Parenthood. He recorded himself offering $100 to anyone who would be willing to dox them, which means to expose their address and other personal details.
Sims later apologized for the incident under pressure, and days later thousands of pro-life protesters rallied outside the facility in Philadelphia, which many of the protesters called on Sims resignation.
