Just when Rep. Ed Soliday thought he was out, a Twitter user pulled him back in.

A new owner of the Valparaiso Republican’s former Twitter handle @RepSoliday has emerged, and he’s pledged to troll the lawmaker until he gives an apology to businessman Dan Brown.

Soliday deleted his account after getting into a bitter Twitter exchange with Brown over legislation regarding direct-to-consumer auto sales from companies like Tesla.

Brown said “this stupid bill is bad for IN.” Soliday responded by calling him stupid. Soliday received immediate Twitter backlash and deleted his account.

After 30 days, someone was able to take the @RepSoliday account over. The new owner, however, does make it clear he’s not the Valparaiso lawmaker.

Soliday has not responded to a request for comment from the IndyStar.
