Rep. Viers resigns amid accusations
State Rep. Thad Viers resigned Wednesday amid accusations that he harassed an ex-girlfriend. Viers made his announcement on the House floor. He said Marlboro County's chief prosecutor will seek an indictment against him today and that he must focus on his defense.
The Myrtle Beach Republican called it a "politically motivated matter over a few love letters."
A woman answering the phone for Solicitor William Rogers said the office will not comment or confirm anything involving Viers' case.
Viers was arrested in January after his ex-girlfriend told investigators he continued to call, text, email and show up at her home and workplace for more than five months after they broke up.
