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.

with such a scandal rich environment you would think the media whores would pick up on this.

Marc Merlini, Chief Information Officer at Team Trackers, says: “The IVR is network-based which is very important because it removes the physical linkage between the contact centre and the customer handling capability, enabling you to adjust the service from anywhere via the internet. This management facility enables Team Trackers to, for instance, change scripts and segment calls in the light of changing patterns of demand.”

About the photo of Mr and Mrs Obama - this just occurred to me. Obama keeps his hair very short - not unusual for black men. BUT - if you notice, his hair (as I sort of noticed before but not so much until seeing this picture) is not frizzy like most people with African heritage. I have a friend with a bona fide African from Africa parent and a white from the US parent, and her hair is like Michelle’s except she doesn’t straighten it like that.

Obama’s hair is like Arabic hair - curly but absolutely not frizzy. His father, from what I’ve read, was mostly Arab. I don’t think he wants to publicize that, and if his hair was longer it would be quite telling.

Anyone ever seen any pictures of him with longer hair?

Brilliant. I wonder why she would take it down?

Also this is on Marc Merlini... What the heck is a “Personal Trader”?

Thanks for capturing the shot. Its funny how 4 hours ago it was online until we started using terms like money Laundring and credit card transaction. If you go out and do a google search you will find this thread. So the Barack Hussein Obama campaign folks are very adapt at fast action and cover.

ACORN Member Meets with Governor Crist to Discuss Foreclosures
patmon was mentioned in that article on the Business listing from ACORN. ACORN appears to be playing BOTH sides of the fence: http://74.125.113.104/search?q=cache:pFIMF4Gel20J:www.acorn.org/index.php%3Fid%3D4316+Carolyn+Patmon+ACORN&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=us

ACORN member Carolyn Patmon met with Florida Governor Charlie Crist to hand deliver a letter from consumer groups urging the Governor to take action on foreclosures before the end of this year’s legislative session. Governor Crist spoke with Carolyn about the predatory loan that has trapped her into a failed mortgage and the need for the state to address the foreclosure crisis. The Governor assured ACORN that he was examining the issue closely. ACORN is urging the state to pass legislation that would ban abusive practices in subprime loans such as prepayment penalties, no-doc loans, and kickbacks to brokers.

"Found more info on whitepages.com. Vera Baker work 350 NE 80th St Miami, FL 33138-4413 phone number unavailable Job title: Partner Company: Cape Caribbean"

I don't know, but when you mention Miami, I recall the political reporter for CBS, Dean Reynolds write last week , "If so, I would love to have someone from Obama's campaign explain why the entire press corps, the Secret Service, and the local police idled for two hours in a Miami hotel parking lot recently because there was nothing to do and nowhere to go. It was not an isolated case."

That's what happened when Muthoni Wambu and Vera Baker, both African-American women, set up their own fundraising shop, Baker Wambu & Associates, in 2000. Though it was never its owners' intention, Baker Wambu soon found itself a top fundraising firm for the Congressional Black Caucus. Their only non-black clients were Reps. Mike Honda (D-Hawaii) and Louise McIntosh Slaughter (D-N.Y.). Not a single white male politician linked up with the firm in its five years. "We didn't aim to be (a strictly CBC firm) at all. But we started to look and say, 'Huh, that's a good committee, that's a big deal.' ... A lot of CBC members were really open to having a firm like ours raise money for them," said Wambu, now deputy political director for Delaware Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr.'s Democratic presidential campaign. "In many ways, they were overlooked as resources. Businesses hadn't pitched to them."

It's serious from a character standpoint. From a political standpoint, there is indeed the risk of backlash per your insinuation.

With all the other shady activity surrounding this character, incl. matters of national security concern (Odinga anyone?), there's no reason to go pedal-to-the-medal on the Vera Baker flap.

I don’t think that has anything to do with anything. In fact what is the fascination with the French guy? He has a realty company and probably other related business. But keep in mind the page you viewed is a generated page (pulls content based on search criteria).

I know. Its relevant if its part of a Money Laundering scheme. Which is what it smells like. Vera Baker is not just “the Other Woman”. There is a reason information about her is being scrubbed from the web. A close Business partner, with whom she is partnered in at least two business, and one with ties to France as a “Personal Trader” and real estate Broker... its possible. Certainly it smells bad.

I explained that “personal trader” is just a bad translation. I doubt she’s involved in any money laundering. She’s an ingenue whose forte seemed to be finagling her way into grant money and work she may or may not have been qualified for. Just one more libtard gaming the system. They just wanted anyone who could possibly put a bad light on Obama out of the picture, so she was just one of many that went under the bus.

Even then, it will be a non-starter with most people who are leaning Obama

A non-starter if it wasn't being added on to a huge list of other things. You know, the proverbial straw that can break a camel's back.

This kind of crap was unseemly when they did it to Bush and it’s unseemly now. I’ve got no use for Obama but this is just slinging trash and looks incredibly petty. We should be able to beat this guy on issues and not some tabloid trash story.
