DescriptionThe tragic unraveling of Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer took a disturbing turn this week when a message from her personal email account landed in a reporter's inbox: Her husband, California's Treasurer Bill Lockyer, the message said, bought and gave her drugs years before she wound up in rehab.

In an apparent call for help, the message also said she could no longer stand the torture and harassment of an ex-lover she says beat her in a motel room two months ago.

"I simply can't bear this any longer," the email said. "Goodbye to everyone."

Fearing for her safety, this newspaper called police, who found her safe at the family's Hayward hills home Wednesday afternoon.

When a reporter arrived a short time later, Lockyer, 40, insisted through a door slightly ajar that she had not sent the email.

She said that her former boyfriend, Steve Chikhani -- a 35-year-old San Jose man she met in rehab -- had been hacking into her account. Hayward police say they are "evaluating whether her email was fraudulently accessed." A spokesman for Bill Lockyer called the accusations about him obtaining drugs for his wife "completely, totally, utterly false."
