Rep. Brian Sims offers ‘Zombie Daryl Metcalfe’ as Halloween costume
State Rep. Brian Sims is having some fun with his Halloween costume, and raising some money off it. On his public Facebook page, the Philly legislator linked to a fundraising website hosted by NGP VAN, a D.C.-based fundraising organization, which asks: “What Should I be for Halloween?”
There are four options: “Zombie Daryl Metcalfe,” “Bearded Ted Cruz,” “Thor,” “Sharknado.”
“You can vote more than once, so if you really want me to be Zombie Darl Metcalfe you can donate $50 and it will go towards 5 votes,” Sims writes on Facebook.
Metcalfe is, of course, the ultra-conservative legislator who has found his calling as of late opposing LGBT rights. He and Sims both serve on the state government committee in the state House and have gotten into a number of spats over the last year.
Sims’ chief of staff, Mason Lane, says the donations go toward Sims’ political action committee, Sims For PA, which will help fund the legislator’s re-election campaign in 2014.
No viable opponent has appeared to challenge Sims for his 182nd district seat, yet.
