Nadia Lockyer's sad scandal
Since February, Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, who is married to the California state treasurer, has been in the spotlight after news broke of her substance abuse, an affair, and an alleged beating by her ex-lover. Today, she finally resigned. Here is how the story unfolded.
- The tragic unraveling of Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer took a disturbing turn this week when a message from her personal email account landed in a reporter's in-box: Her husband, California's Treasurer Bill Lockyer, the message claimed, bought and gave her the drugs that led to her addiction. In an apparent call for help, the message also said she could no longer stand the torture and harassment of an ex-lover she says beat her in a motel room two months ago. Fearing for her safety, the newspaper immediately called police and forwarded the email to Nadia Lockyer's chief of staff and to her 70-year-old husband's office. Police found her safe at the family home Wednesday afternoon in the Hayward hills.
