Who is Vera Baker and why is she in Martinique? (Obama Affair)
Hill buzz ^ | 101208 | Hill Buzz

Posted on 10/12/2008 2:34:58 PM PDT by Fred

Who is Vera Baker?

Some people in Chicago claim she was Obama’s Finance Director for his 2004 Senate campaign. FEC Senate campaign records show she was paid a pretty penny as “Finance Director”.

However, people familiar with Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign say Claire Serdiuk was Obama’s Finance Director. Looking through everything we can see online for that 2004 campaign, Claire Serdiuk is consistently listed as the Finance Director - because that’s what she was.

There’s no mention of Vera Baker…but Vera Baker was paid as the “Finance Director” too.

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.

We hear it’s lovely there. They get lots of sunshine on Sundays. Paradise. A lovely place to read between the lines and ask lots of questions. All reporters should go there and feel inspired.

Does anyone else get the impression the media doesn’t want to report on people like Vera Baker until after the election — and that both the Clinton and McCain campaigns have been unable to force them to do otherwise? Do you ever get the feeling reporters sit around, perhaps on top of piles of stories they choose not to report, asking each other, “You don’t really want McCain to win, do you?”.

Of course they don’t.

The piles make better chairs than stories. “We’re all so comfy!”

That’s why you’ve never heard of Vera Baker…and most likely won’t in the next three weeks.

I don’t think that Vera would be “punished” by a child.

Vera’s company worked for Joe Biden’s campaign when he was running for Pres. No wonder he got picked as VP.

The people who didn’t care about Clinton’s affairs will not care about Obama’s. Unless good evidence can be found that he used tax money to support his mistress, it will be a non-starter. Even then, it will be a non-starter with most people who are leaning Obama.

Well, it did finish off John Edwards.

Or maybe the Democrats wanted to finish off John Edwards.

Bill got a pass because we “knew him” and he was always sort of cad. He never really pitched himself as a family man. And, there was some fatigue about it.

Fast forward to Michelle and Barak and how she loves her man on the cover of People.

I don’t think this would resonate well with a lot of people. The phrase, “Not again!” comes to mind.

We're already playing russian roulette, allowing the 'Rats to make the rules, and allowing the MSM to set the tone of the election dialogues.

I say go for it. Anybody brave enough to go to Martinique and start turning over rocks?

I have to laugh every time the sanctimonious 'Rats keep hopping up and down in faux outrage and demanding that the Republicans take the high road, while their 527s and unattributed flying monkeys spew a steady stream of "scandals", real, imagined and invented about the Republican candidates, our present president, our past presidents and members of congress from as long as 30 years ago...

Give me a break!

This would make such a good 527 ad with Obangos original statement followed by 25 seconds of adorable pictures of baby's.

Both of the Obamas are some of the ugliest, most hostile-looking folks I have ever seen. I can’t for the life of me understand how anybody could look at Obama and see anything but anger and cruelty.

Yup, I think you hit the nail on the head.

However, there were two other factors that entered into it: Edwards' wife's illness, and the high probability that the 'love child' was actually his.

Yep, that sounds about par for the course.
Another example of msm double standards. It hasn’t been a month ago that Sarah was accused of having an affair on the front page of the nyt. No evidence, just a rumor. JEEZ!
P.S. 4 years after the fact thats’ not with child, that’s love child.

Maybe it is futile to bring something like this up - B.O. is a democrat, after all, and they don't expect their candidates to be 100 % faithful, but it might change some people's minds, and we need all of that we can get.

Richard Daley is probably bankrolling Vera Baker in Martinique.

Baker formed a company in Washington in 2000 with a girlfriend called Baker Wambu & Associates who represented the Congressional Black Caucus.

Before they did that Wambu ran Richard Daley’s Campaigns in the late 90s and Baker worked at a PR firm in Chicago. Now Wambu is on Biden’s campaign and Baker is in the Caribbean. Baker was in Chicago then Baker was in Washington. Seems it lines up for an affair of several years. I personally care much more about Odinga but whatever it takes to bring that Obomination down I don’t care.

If she's innocent, then she has nothing to hide.

And she'll probably end up a celebrity - pose for Hefner or Flynt!

I didn't look up the quote, but I believe he said that he didn't want his daughters to be punished by an unwanted pregnancy. He didn't specify who would be involved, though.

IMO Edwards was thrown to the willing media wolves because it took all the headlines for at least four-six news cycles, and the obama team thinks in small time bites.

Cape Caribbean, LLC

Firm Principal Vera Baker spends her time between the office in Fort de France, Martinique and the office Miami, Florida. She is an avid traveler, having visited 17 countries on 5 continents, muli-lingual (English and French) and an occasional free lance writer.

Prior to launching Cape Caribbean, Ms. Baker worked for Alta Capital Group-a full-service municipal bond broker-deal. She joined Alta Capital Group after serving as a Principal at Baker-Wambu & Associates, a strategic political and fundraising consulting firm based in Washington, DC. Previously, she served as the National Finance Director on Senator Barack Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign. She also served as the Deputy Political Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Born and raised in San Francisco, CA, Ms. Baker received her dual Bachelor degrees in Political, Legal, and Economic Analysis and African American Studies from Mills College. She worked toward a Master of Art in Political Science from Howard University and a Masters of Art in African American studies.American studies from Columbia.


African American professionals can build prosperous careers in the capital city, especially those hoping to play a role in national politics. "There's a mentality here that there's enough for everyone; you're not competing for what feels like a limited number of opportunities," says 29-year-old Muthoni Wambu.

Like most Washingtonians, Wambu is a transplant. She left New York City's Upper West Side to study journalism at Howard University and then networked her way into a political fundraising job with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. This was a new aspect of politics for Wambu, who soon discovered that it "brought together my strengths in a way that I'd never anticipated."

In 2000, Wambu and Vera Baker, another Howard alum, started Baker-Wambu & Associates. The firm has raised over $3 million for the campaigns of members of Congress and other politicians. "Washington is the best place for our firm to blossom and grow, and one of the only cities where two 24-year-old African American women [could have built a successful business] with pennies and a dream," she says.
