Bill Lockyer and Nadia Maria Davis Lockyer, California Democratic Power Couple, Split Up
The 41-year-old daughter of the late Santa Ana immigrant rights lawyer Wallace R. Davis won her Alameda County Board of Supervisors seat in November 2010 thanks largely to $1.5 million pumped into her campaign by her husband's own coffers.
Any attempt to keep their trysts secret failed on Feb. 3, when police rolled up to a hotel where Mrs. Lockyer had been roughed up. She wound up being hospitalized for head and neck injuries after allegedly being beaten by Chikhani, who later claimed to have acted in self-defense.
Different members of the love triangle traded accusations in the media. Bill Lockyer claimed his wife had ended the relationship but Chikhani was still stalking her. Chikhani claimed it was still on and that he had made a sex tape with Nadia. Ms. Lockyer claimed Chikhani bashed her head into a stone and that her husband--the state's former attorney general--fed her drugs and suggested she kill herself.
