Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, wife of California treasurer, acknowledges substance abuse, affair

Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, wife of California Treasurer Bill Lockyer, said Tuesday that she's in rehabilitation for a substance-abuse problem after an extramarital affair culminated in a beating by her ex-lover.
The announcement marked a sharp turn in the career of a woman who at 40 had been seen as a rising star in California politics. The scandal is also an ugly footnote on her husband's nearly four-decade-long career, which made him one of California's most influential politicians.
Nadia Lockyer had reported to police that she had been attacked by the former boyfriend Feb. 3 at a Newark motel. A police log indicates that she suffered head and neck injuries requiring medical treatment and that officers were investigating it as a case of battery with serious bodily injury.
"The injuries I suffered from that assault will require some time to heal, and I am receiving treatment for them," she said in a statement Tuesday.
"As of last week, I have enrolled myself in a wellness and recovery center to treat my injuries from the assault," she said. "I am also receiving treatment for chemical dependency and chronic pain from a past debilitating car accident. Alcoholism and addiction are diseases from which many of us suffer, and unfortunately, I have not been spared. With the strong encouragement of the people in my life who love me, including my husband, my family and my friends, I decided to get help and treatment so that I may fully heal and recover."

Perfect candidate for a rapid move up in the Democrat Party. Should do very well.
Just routine stuff here folks. Nothing to see. Move along. /sarcasm. :-)
Sounds like repeatedly slamming her head into the Headboard really took a toll on the poor woman.
So, the only real reason this came out now is because her “lover” beat the crap out of her and she didn`t want to try the “I got robbed” Defense....HUGE LOLOLOLOLOL!!!
zactly. She’s a Democrat so it’s a private matter.
Still no arrest almost TWO WEEKS after an (alleged) attack on a beloved DEMOCRAT politician?!
The cops must suspect something is very wrong with her story.
If she was only a “rising star” ‘RAT before this, her career should really take off now. She exceeds all of the ‘RATS’ qualifications and is everything they want in their politicians.
Maybe she was drinkin’ his hair dye.
She better learn to pucker-up a little more or her lips are gonna stay like that.
Cuckhole #1. #2 was Villagarosa’s wife. Or was it Gavin Newsome’s wives? Or was it Maria Shriver?
Hey, let’s have a contest on who is the biggest marriage losers of current and recent Californication politicians.
Lots of candidates so let loose FRers.
“The Lockyers”, what our founding father had in mind for citizenry government.
Substance abuse and an affair.
Both Democrat resume enhancers.
She’ll go far.
Something fishy about this. Why no charges and arrest? Surely the woman knows who she was with! Did she call the police after the alleged beating? Who took her to the hospital - the police, her boyfriend, her husband? Why did the guy attack her? And why was she in a motel? Seems a person who is a public figure would not have slithered into a motel for a quickie. Didn't her "lover" have an apartment or someplace more private than going to a motel? Maybe he is married also???
There are a lot of unknowns here and things just don't seem right. And on top of all of that...her husband looks overly made up, and kind of too feminine. Maybe that's the problem with their marriage??? It is all very suspiciously strange.
The song, Lying Eyes comes to mind.
He was born in 1941, and if she’s 40, the slut was born in 1971. Think about THAT. Almost as bad as Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon...What the **** does he have to say ....”She’s not my DAUGHTER; she’s my WIFE!!!” ??? Guarantee he kicked Wife #1 to the curb to get to the newer model, the filthy old geezer!
