The SF Chronicle had the headline "Bizarre Twist In Nadia Lockyer Saga," which was a dog whistle to start blogging since her "saga" (it's a sex/meth/DV scandal) has been one bizarre turn after another. Turned out, the latest twist wasn't all that bizarre, given the high bar she has established for herself. Still it probably is worth noting that she is accusing her husband, State Treasurer Bill Lockyer, of feeding her drugs:
More drama involving Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer - this time concerning an e-mail from her Web address that was sent to the San Jose Mercury News suggesting she was in serious distress and blaming her husband, state Treasurer Bill Lockyer, for hooking her on drugs.
After receiving the e-mail Wednesday, the Mercury News called police in Hayward, where officers and paramedics were promptly dispatched to the Lockyers' home to check on her.
According to law enforcement and other sources, Nadia Lockyer insisted she was fine and denied sending the e-mail.
However, she did tell a Mercury News reporter who showed up at her door that she had in fact drafted part of the e-mail - but that "everything in regards to my husband was all added."
Tom Dresslar, spokesman for Bill Lockyer, called any suggestion that the treasurer had given his wife drugs "100 percent false."
Nadia claims that the email was planted by her bete noir, Steve Chikhai, which makes total sense (snort). Really what we're dealing with here is a woman who has simply lost her faculties. It's incredible that she hasn't resigned, at least to stop the never-ending disclosures of her frankly sleazy double life. It's even more incredible that no one in California's one-party political apparatus hasn't called for her resignation. Instead, everyone's talking about how high-profile addicts can make a come back if they are willing to deal with their problems. I don't think that would be the standard if Lockyer had a (R) after her name.
