Who is Vera Baker?
Some people in Chicago claim she was Obamas 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 Obamas 2004 Senate campaign say Claire Serdiuk was Obamas Finance Director. Looking through everything we can see online for that 2004 campaign, Claire Serdiuk is consistently listed as the Finance Director - because thats what she was.
Theres 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 Michelles 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 its 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 doesnt 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 dont really want McCain to win, do you?.
Of course they dont.
The piles make better chairs than stories. Were all so comfy!
Thats why youve never heard of Vera Baker
and most likely wont in the next three weeks.
I don’t think that Vera would be “punished” by a child.
Unfortunately, the voters don’t care. This is political russian-roulette to even talk about this.
Didn’t Barack tell us that we needed to learn French.
I don’t think anyone would take Hillary serious if she talked about Obama’s infidelity.
Vera’s company worked for Joe Biden’s campaign when he was running for Pres. No wonder he got picked as VP.
I suspect Vera taught Barry a little French cough, cough
Will the media send 30 reporters to investigate odumbos hoochie? No but the blogs will uncover the truth in time
Need a face to the name...
Infidelity is only important if it's a Republican.
And the plot thickens.......
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!
I think this is all a fictional “scandal” to get away from the gay liaisons issue that has been a problem for Obama.
Denial: The woman, whose identity we have protected, rejected the claims
(The "protection" did not work very well.)
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.
You’re right. Selective outrage.
Always when it concerns a Republican.
Maybe when it is a Dem
Definitely when it is an enemy of BHO or HRC
Is that her underwear peeking out her pants?
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.
Perhaps NObama is like his unrepentant terrorist friend, Bill Ayers. He believes in “equal opportunity for the sexes”.
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!
Why isn’t the National Enquire on this?
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.
I second your entire post!!
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.
No pictures on the net other then this?
Enquiring minds need to notify the enquirer to investigate. I bet they are on the trail.
She is lucky she does not work at Lumber Liquidators , even the One could not protect her from a magnum weggie .
Do you think Richard Daley is the Fred Baron of this story?
There is an inner soul that seeps through their poors!
Wonder if this is the same Vera Baker?

Good gracious, that woman is so ugly. She has let hate destroy her face.
Deputy Political Director Muthoni Wambu
Former AFL-CIO PAC Coordinator. In 2000 Wambu joined with Vera Baker to form Baker Wambu & Associates, a political fund-raising firm. Worked for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee during the 2000 and 1998 cycles. Bachelor’s degree in journalism from Howard University, 1997. From New York City.
NO, I think we are talking about Vera E Baker:
VERA E BAKER (BAKER-WAMBU), (Zip code: 20002) $250 to FRIENDS OF MARY LANDRIEU INC on 10/04/01
VERA E BAKER (ALTA CAPITAL/INVESTMENT), (Zip code: 10009) $300 to HAROLD FORD JR FOR TENNESSEE on 05/11/06
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 Obamas 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.
Michelle ought not to be so unhappy....it could have been another GUY.
I keep telling you: this guy is more Clintonian than the Clintons
No, I disagree, I think he’s been playin’ with Larry’s kind.
Vera is just a teaser to throw the folks off the Chicago limo ‘down-low’ trail.
She is mentioned as Finance Director for 0bama’s senate run
Wow! Good find.
Why so upset? Muslims may have more than one wife and Michelle Ma Belle had better get used to it.
