In the past week, producers for "Inside Edition" and the "Dr. Phil" show have reached out to state Treasurer Bill Lockyer.
They were not asking about his $1.9 billion refinance of state bond debt.
Lockyer, a 70-year-old elder statesman of Capitol politics, finds himself mired in personal controversy and the subject of media attention after his wife said she was injured in a violent assault and acknowledged undergoing treatment for chemical dependency.
The latest twist: She also made a sex tape with the methamphetamine user she says attacked her, a development reported by the San Francisco Chronicle and confirmed by The Bee.
Nadia Lockyer, 40, remains at a rehab center after allegedly suffering a Feb. 3 assault at a Newark hotel. An Alameda County supervisor, she said in a statement that "interpersonal violence is something that can affect anyone, and I am glad this experience is in my past."
"Alcoholism and addiction," she said, "are diseases from which many of us suffer, and unfortunately, I have not been spared."
Longtime friends said it was an unfortunate turn in the life of Bill Lockyer, a state lawmaker for a quarter-century before serving as attorney general and now treasurer. They also expressed concern for the Hayward couple's 8-year-old son.
"Everybody knows someone who's a loved one who's had personal problems," said Patrick Johnston, a former Democratic legislator who served with Lockyer in the Assembly and Senate. "It would be easier to work through those problems outside of public scrutiny, but in elected office there is an inevitable component of revealing things, which other people don't have to go through."
Lockyer himself told the Chronicle in a letter to the editor that the attention is "painful ... but fair. We are elected officials."

Diego, at the 2004 California Democratic Convention in
San Jose. His wife, Nadia Lockyer, is at left.
The obligatory absense of Party affiliation just jumps right out at ya.
No paternity test needed, the kid looks just like him, unfortunately.
She’s “in rehab.” That way all the details get covered by HIPAA.
Just another RAT public official improving on his resume.
If he were GOP they would be howling to push him out of office.
When you look at the kind of people we have given financial and lawmaking powers in CA..it is no wonder the state is broke.
That’s funny, I was just thinking what an unfortunate resemblance that innocent little boy has to her ... friend.
Thats funny, I was just thinking what an unfortunate resemblance that innocent little boy has to her ... friend.Her "friend" has already said that the sex tape is not the biggest story. One must wonder what could possibly be a bigger story than that?
I bet William Jefferson Clinton is right now scheming on how he can move in on Nadia Lockyer.
So are they going to make a Lifetime move of all this? Who would play Nadia? If Lindsay Lohan died her hair black, I bet she would have no difficulty playing a crazy woman drug addict. Who would be good as Bill Lockyer? Gary Busey?
What would be a cool title if they made this into a lifetime movie? Defaulted Vows, Defaulted Bonds? Or: The Lockyer Saga: Moral and Fiscal Bankruptcy. Californication: Public Sector Edition.
Yep. She is obviously a slut.
She also made a sex tape with the methamphetamine user...
Jessica Alba. No question about it.
LOL! Great summary, great titles.
And just damn, overall.
The rumors are that their marriage had some very unusual sex stuff.
My guess is that they were swingers, or did 3-ways, or something.
One of Lockyer's donors weighs in.
"Duh---that's what most married woman dood after an argument."
Tracked to rehab, Mrs Lockyer was asked about her marital situation, "We have very little thrust between us."
"Don't you mean trust?" asked a reporter.
" No I mean thrust--my husband is 70 years old--you figure it out," said Nadia.
Three on a match:
The sex machine.
The cuckold --- ever do a paternity test on that kid, Bill?
