Nadia Maria Davis-Lockyer Resigns as NorCal Supervisor--Then Opens Up About Scandal
"The public deserves and I think wants some answers and is tired of hearing about me and all this drama," Nadia Lockyer reportedly told the Merc's Julia Prodis Sulek. "I do need to resign and really, really focus on my recovery from both the assault and that abusive relationship, healing my heart and my psyche."
Nadia Lockyer says she feared she would be blackmailed, that it was she who emailed a reporter last week falsely blaming Bill Lockyer for buying and supplying her with drugs, and that she now imagines a new life focused on recovery and family. She says he has thanked her husband for "his incredible patience and love and understanding despite the things I shared about past hurts and losses."
Bill Lockyer issued a statement of his own Friday that said of his wife, "She has worked hard and well for her district. But the last year took a great toll on Nadia. It's best for her, best for Diego and best for our family that she leave public office."
One doubts anyone will line up to argue that point.
