Wieckowski Aide Filed Unsuccessful Restraining Order Last Year Against Wife of Alberto Torrico

STATE SENATE | 10TH DISTRICT | A violent feud between the wife of a former East Bay state Assemblymember and the ex-chief of staff of a current one is raising questions about the use of taxpayer funds on what appears to have been a private — albeit, salacious — dispute. In addition, the public fight between Raquel Torrico, the wife of former Assembly Majority Leader Alberto Torrico, and Trisha Tahmasbi, the now ex-chief of staff of current Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski, could have political repercussions, because the Torricos are now openly backing one of Wieckowski’s Democratic rivals in what promises to be a hotly contested June election for the state Senate.

The dispute between Raquel Torrico and Trisha Tahmasbi first drew attention in the capital last year when the two got into a physical altercation outside the Democratic Party state convention in Sacramento. At the time, Tahmasbi was Wieckowski’s chief of staff, and her confrontation with Raquel Torrico stemmed from a romantic relationship that Tahmasbi had with Alberto Torrico. The street fight between the two women resulted in Tahmasbi suffering a bruised cheek and a black eye. Raquel Torrico said later in court documents that she and her husband subsequently became the victims of an attempted threat to make his tryst with Tahmasbi public…

  6. Sounds like Wieckowski's team is falling apart. What about the woman that Wieckowski has running around in his law office. She's always completely disheveled, and always completely barefoot and unorganized. They say she is his “legal assistant”, but it always feels like she's someone off of a raunchy talk-show, like Jerry Springer. Heard she doesn't even have her license, not sure he's even running a legitimate law office over there. That's another one to check into…

  7. How many of you think we should send Raquel a message, to stop causing more trouble for her husband. The more she opens her mouth, stalks young ladies at the capitol, and yells and throws tantrums, the worse off Mr. Torrico looks, not to mention the endless torment he children have to take. Anyone willing to tell the loudmouth bolivian Raquel that she needs to sit back and keep her mouth shut?

  9. Yes to both! I'll stand with you, 9:31 pm, and send Raquel Torrico a message that enough is enough. Stop the INSANITY! Her out-of-control antics have already shamed her poor husband (possibly ruining his reputation in Sacramento); her antics have decimated the reputation and career of a hard-working young woman; her antics have paved a pathway to go after our highly respected Wieckowski, and worst of all, she has set a terrible record for her two young children, Mateo & Amy. God knows what they have seen and had to endure, if last year's public hunting of that young woman gives us any indication of what is actually happening behind the walls of their own home. Alberto's own brothers and parents have suffered long enough, and go years without seeing their nieces and nephews, and the grandparents go months without seeing their own grandkids, than to have to run into that vile loud mouth Bolivian Raquel. She needs to shut her vile loudmouth! Every time she opens it, someone gets hurt. Poor Alberto. Join us to end the torture.

If you ever have a chance to meet the Torricos you will see after the first 10 minutes of her interrupting her husband that she is stark raving crazy. You will also see that Alberto is a spineless joke of a man. I had this pleasure once in Fremont a long time ago.

It's actually hilarious, she yells at him in spanish for like 6 or 7 minutes while he stares at his feet, and then they both hold hands and pray in spanish. I heard her yell the words “gordo” and “panoche” and “puto” while he cried in the corner, and then they started to pray. The poor slob is being verbally abused and brainwashed in public now.

  16. I find it breathtaking that everyone is harping on Raquel when she is the victim in this circumstance. She has the right to be pissed.

  17. 6:20, you're damn right. You have more than the 'right' to be pissed. You have the mf'ing duty to be pissed: at your husband, the man who took vows to cherish your unpleasant mug for life.
    You don't, however, have the right to terrorize and stalk his young mistress for a year. She best check her husband, or she's going to be reliving this nightmare on the daily, ya hear?
    (Plus, 6:20, we're guessing, if you have anything nice to say about her, you likely never met her before. She's the cray cray, bugged eyed, slice-you-in-your-sleep type of maniac wife)!

    I mean, for real, you bring your kids to chase this girl down for hours, in front of the business types that your husband has to interact with to earn his scratch. You got your kids there crying, while you all up in errbody's grill, yellin' yo half English rant, talkin' squawk, bringing 60 or 70 peeps into your dysfunctional marriage deets, trying to blame this girl, as if yo husband accidentally fell into a camouflaged snatch trap?!? What you got goin' on at home? What kind of woman brings their little babies to witness that shit, shaking and crying in front of a hundred strangers. CPS should have been called. You obviously got some major issues in your home life, figure that out first before you get all 'hood rat' at our local democratic delegate gathering.

    Errbody here is pissed off, that don't mean we all get to throw punches and stalk people at their place of employment. Torrico's got some real explaining to do, his cowardly lyin' got us all pissed off. We're all the victims here. Only one that gets to hide this out is little boy Torrico, the little perpetrator that started all this shit.

    Got to level with you 6:20, while I partially agree with you, I still gots to throw up the hash.

  23. 2:49 am was actually Torrico typing madly away with Raquel's shank at his throat. Poor thang. Don't you worry you poor thang.

    Torrico is a dawg, we all agree with you on that Mrs. Raquel, that is clear for everyone to see.

    But lucky to have you? I don't think any of us would wish that fate on our worst enemy. If he was so 'lucky' to have you, he wouldn't have had an affair with another woman for so many of those years. My analysis is that both of you can't stand each other. Naw I'm not trying to be mean, I don't care about either of yous, but hear me out.

    I'd say anyone that finally gets the balls to go and file for a retraining order is scared and fearful of whatever is happening in the situation. This young woman was scared. It means you were crossing some serious lines Mrs. Raquel.

    You were blaming the wrong person. It's always easier to hook after the otha woman, because while you're distracted chasing after that little girl, you don't have to answer the tougher questions, 1) why did my man do this to me; 2) how long has my man been doing this to me; 3) how many other women were there; 4) is there anything about me or my approach that's pushing my own man out the door; 5) will I be able to trust him again?

    Rather than sitting together to heal as a family to answer those questions, you decided to go 'Ted Bundy' on this young woman's ass, making it an issue of the mistress instead of your husband's character and infidelity. Where there is one, there are many, so spending a year chasing a young woman out of town may have made you feel better Mrs. Raquel, but it doesn't fix that fact that yo husband sleeps with younger women to feel better about himself.

    We've all seen you together. Quite frankly, you make all of us uncomfortable. Your husband acts like an abused mute, sometimes he acts like he's being held hostage but can't say anything or look at anyone, and you kick and scream and yell for no reason. We can cut the tension with a knife.

    I always feel like I'm bout to get a secret note from him that says “you gotta help me brotha, she's wearing a bomb, if I walk away, it will explode”. That sometimes be the look on his dumbass face.

    Hope you get your inside deets dealt with, privately, so that the world don't have to watch so closely as your beautiful kids deal with this. Again, we're up with the hash, because you don't realize, the more you run yo offensive mouth, the more you hurt your children and husband, and your own credibility.

  24. If anything Torrico manipulated this young woman into getting into a relationship with him. He was much older than her. He was her boss. Being her superior and holding that kind of power over her head. How completely shameful of Torrico to do. And then to let it go so far. His selfish indiscretions really did ruin a lot of lives.

  32. Oh yes, back here again, with Torrico (or one of his goons) typing away with one pathetic excuse after another. Oh really? Did this 50 year old, balding, washed up fraud who's been 15 years unhappy in his marriage, did he find himself trapped with a younger woman? Please? He's the only one we have yet to hear from, and it's because he can't offer any information as to why he manipulated the young woman who looked up to him, he can't answer as to why he betrayed his wife, he can't quite admit why he's cheated his family and children, he can't answer how it is he looks himself in the mirror every morning before he scurries off to church to worship a lifestyle that he tries to break out of every day. He got caught in a high profile cheating scandal with a younger woman that lasted nearly half the length of his marriage. In order to avoid having to explain to his wife how it is that he fell in love with another woman, he chose just to vilify the young girl, and cast himself in the role of a victim. He broke every line of trust that he had out there, trust to his wife, trust to his kids, trust to his staff, trust to those he represented, trust to his colleagues and fellow church goers. This terrible issue of moral betrayal starts and ends with Mr. Alberto Torrico.

  33. Steve, I want to work with you on this one. I plan to call up Mr. John Latimer, he's the named partner at Capitol Advocacy in Sacramento, one of the Sacramento's most notable lobbying firms. Would like to get to the bottom of a few of these accusations. Did they have advance notice of the affair between the staffer and Mr. Torrico. After their affair was exposed, did Mr. Torrico hire his wife in an attempt to terrorize and humiliate the young staffer; did they realize that this young staffer was likely pregnant with Torrico's child; did they participate, if at all, in the terrorizing of the young staffer; did the personal feud between Torrico's wife and this young staffer at all impact Latimer's and Capital Advocacy's position with Wieckowski as related to the #SD10 race.

  39. Choices choices…

    A convicted thief with a story that stretches credulity.

    A lawyer turned career politician who supports this or that politician not because they are good candidates but because he expect them to be his cronies and help him fund raise.

    Two nice, and clueless, guys who probably make great neighbors and citizens but know little else other than the one issue they are passionate about. (SCA5 for Kuo and Stem cell research for Reed).

    And a wanna-be career politician who has been Green, Republican, Democrat, and just about everywhere over the map.

    I think I will vote for the Lawyer/career politician, the last thing we need is another scumbag lawyer here in Fremont.
