Personal Baker

The National Enquirer is reporting that the president had an affair in 2004 when he was running for the U.S. Senate.

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!
The video, it seems, is a hypothetical. Vera Baker, though, is apparently real. Rumors of an affair between the two surfaced during the campaign a couple of years ago. Of course, back then - when Obama was a major religious figure - little reporting was done.
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.
Which would have made her 29. And a major fundraiser. How does one accomplish that?
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. The limo driver part of the story is the most curious. The anti-Obama people are offering money for his story, says the paper, and then it goes on to quote the driver.
Back to the limo drive. He's being offered big money, yet he's telling his story for free?
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."
Wikipedia says Baker is already retired from the political fundraising business. Odd for someone with close ties to Obama.
Vera Baker is a former political fundraiser. With Muthoni Wambu, she founded Baker Wambu & Associates in 2000. According to The Politico, Baker's organization became a top fundraising firm for the Congressional Black Caucus. [1] Baker was the Finance Director for Barack Obama's 2004 Illinois Senate campaign and was identified by The American Prospect as one of the "rare" African-American major fundraisers.[2] She also served as the Deputy Political Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The Enquirer has a good reputation for its scandal reporting in the past, but this story seems unsubstantiated. No smoking gun like a president trapped in the men's room.
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."
Will they find a tape from 6 years ago? Now there's a big "if." Vera is said to be living in the Caribbean, while her former business partner works for Joe Biden.
