Thad Viers, South Carolina Legislator, Drops Congressional Bid After Harassment Charges

Posted: Updated:

The charges stem from a report filed by Viers' 28-year-old ex-girlfriend, Candace Bessinger. The victim told police she broke off her relationship with him in June or July of 2011, but Viers continued to call, text and email, according to an incident report on the police department's website. The victim also told police he had shown up at her home and also at her place of employment, according to the report.

In the report, the victim told police she had asked Viers multiple times to stop calling, but was reluctant to do anything because she did not want to hurt his reputation or career, if the information were to be made public.
