About a month before the 2008 election, we reported the rumors of a Barack Obama affair with a former member of his campaign staff, Vera Baker :
In London they are calling it a Smear, but smear is something that you put on a bagel. The real question is the times went with a front page story on McCain, and they had a lot less. The story here is that Senator Obama has a VERY Close relationship with campaign worker Vera Baker. Who was described in this 2005 article as the Finance Director of Obama’s Senate Campaign
At the time the “friendship” between the future President and Ms. Baker was reported in both
- MSNBC:…..And then, suddenly, Vera Baker was relocated to New York. Right around the time Michelle Obama got incredibly angry about something. We know it was hard to tell, because Michelle’s angry about something on a good day…but this was EXTRA angry….And then, even more suddenly, Vera Baker was relocated to the island of Martinique, where she remains.
- And the UK Daily Mail: The whispers focus on a young woman who in 2004 was hired to work on his team for his bid to become a senator. The woman was purportedly sidelined from her duties after Senator Obama’s wife, Michelle, became convinced that he had developed a personal friendship with her.
Last September when the book Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage was published it was revealed that Vera Baker was questioned by a journalist about this sudden disappearance, she said:

Well this is indeed how a Presidential Lady revenge is! Stay away or I’ll get you to go away!
Now, a year and a half after the Affair stories first broke, they are being revived by the National Enquirer who was responsible for the outing of the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter affair. According to the Enquirer there is new and recent evidence.
PRESIDENT OBAMA has been caught in a shocking cheating scandal after being caught in a Washington, DC Hotel with a former campaign aide, sources say.
And now, a hush-hush security video that shows everything could topple both Obama’s presidency and marriage to Michelle!
A confidential investigation has learned that Obama first became close to gorgeous 35 year-old VERA BAKER in 2004 when she worked tirelessly to get him elected to the US Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions.
While Baker has insisted in the past that “nothing happened” between them, the ENQUIRER has learned that top anti-Obama operatives are offering more than $1 million to witnesses to reveal what they know about the alleged hush-hush affair.
Among those being offered money is a limo driver who says that he took Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous where the President was staying.
On the condition of anonymity, the limo driver said he took Baker “from a friend’s home in the DC area to the Hotel George where I learned later that Obama would be spending the night.”
The driver recalled that he “waited in the lobby while she went to change her outfit.
“But to the best of knowledge she did not have a room at the hotel and she was not staying there so I thought that it was a bit odd.”
The driver said he then picked up Obama at the airport and drove both he and Baker to various locations while he was campaigning for funds. Vera accompanied him to each meeting.
“About 10:30 PM, I drove them to the hotel and they went in together!”
“My services for the evening were done – and there was no indication she was going to leave the hotel that night.”
A top DC source told The ENQUIRER exclusively that the driver’s account had been independently corroborated by investigators who believe the couple spent the night together at the hotel. The ENQUIRER has also learned that on-site hotel surveillance video camera footage could provide indisputable evidence.
“Investigators are attempting to obtain a tape from the hotel (that) shows Vera and Barack together,” the DC insider confided. “If the tape surfaces, it will explode the scandal.”
Is this true? This is the third source talking about the relationship. And the National Enquirer is good with political sex scandals, before they nailed Edwards they got Gary Hart and Donna Rice, so who knows. We will continue to report any new evidence.
