Re: “Sex and Violence Scandal May Impact East Bay Senate Race

Some additional questions/comments:

1. If Alberto Torrico was indeed involved in an inappropriate relationship with his subordinates, this would be one of the highest violations of ethics, and should also be further investigated.

2. EBX should look closer at whether or not Majority Leader Torrico utilized any of our taxpayer dollars or campaign contributions to carry on this alleged extramarital affair. That is newsworthy, and the public deserves to know how one of our highest ranking elected officials in the state operated while he was in office.

3. Why did the California State Assembly see fit to represent a staff member against Torrico's wife? What additional information can they provide us regarding the ongoing confrontations that led to the request for a restraining order? Why was this 'feud' allowed to go on for over a year?

4. Tavares and the EBX should examine more closely the role that Torrico may have played in this 'scandal'. His role as an influential lobbyist in Sacramento and his former role as one of our highest ranking official makes him the most prominent player in this scenario.
