Rumors of a President Barack Obama cheating scandal hit the media this week after the National Enquirer claimed there is proof of an Obama affair with former staffer Vera Baker. The National Enquirer has never been shy about going after high-profile politicians, but this time the tabloid mag is taking it all the way to the top!
Now, lest we immediately dismiss a Barack Obama cheating scandal rumor just because the National Enquirer printed it, don’t forget they were right about the John Edwards affair all along – when no one else would even discuss it. They also nailed Tiger Woods for cheating long before anyone else would touch that story either.
Vera Baker reportedly worked on Barack Obama’s Senate campaign in Illinois in 2004 as a finance advisor. Baker insists “nothing happened” between her and Barack Obama, but the National Enquirer apparently doesn’t believe her. The tabloid is determined to dig up any dirt they can find on the story.
Vera Baker was previously mentioned by author Christopher Anderson in the book Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage. Anderson claimed in the book that Baker and Obama developed a “very close” relationship while she was volunteering on his campaign. Baker later allegedly left the campaign after Michelle Obama became jealous.
An anonymous limo driver allegedly claims he drove Vera Baker to a secret rendezvous at a hotel. The Enquirer says security footage from the hotel could prove Obama and Baker spent the night together. The tabloid is reportedly offering $1 million to anyone who can prove President Obama had an affair.
We believed the Enquirer when they spilled the beans on John Edwards. We thought maybe they were on the money when they accused Tiger Woods of cheating. But we just can’t quite believe the whole Barack Obama cheating scandal thing. We could be wrong, but we swear we smell a rat with this one.
* Update – A photo previously indentified as Vera Baker has been removed. Although the image has repeatedly been used in the mainstream media in reference to the elusive Vera Baker, some sources have retracted the photo, saying it is not Baker but a different political staffer. We certainly do not want to have the wrong photo up, so we have taken it down at this time until a photo of Baker can be officially identified.
