Exciting Obama Sex Smear Relaunched In British Press (Affair with Vera Baker)
Gawker ^ | 101408 | Ryan Tate

Posted on 10/14/2008 10:52:22 AM PDT by Fred

You know a story is sketchy when even a British tabloid looks at it and goes, "You know, this seems a bit salacious and over the top," as the Daily Mail has just done with the rumor, dating to August but now resurfaced, about how Barack Obama maybe got too close to an anonymous young staffer during his 2004 senate campaign, before Michelle had her exiled to the Caribbean, but probably the whole thing is just a big Republican smear. The Mail tracked the woman down somewhere in the West Indies — they won't give her name or location, dodgy Fleet Street hacks! — and she said "nothing happened. I just left... I switched careers. That’s it." Then the paper got a mysterious call from a London lawyer, and now the right-wing bloggers are saying the scandal has been basically proven.

It seems someone with money is very interested in batting down this rumor:

Senator Obama’s team did not respond to our request for comment.

But one day after we contacted Obama’s team, a London law firm informed The Mail on Sunday that it had been retained by the woman to help her to counter the whispering campaign, which they said was ‘absolutely false’.

The Democratic presidential nominee would be wise to hire a lawyer on the woman's behalf, if that's what he's doing, even if this story is totally false. It allows him to answer the charges without dignifying them with an official campaign response.

Anti-Obama bloggers have already named the woman. They say she's Vera Brown, formerly of the fundraising shop Baker Wambu & Associates, now running Cape Carribean LLC. The Google cache of the firm's homepage, now offline, seems to confirm (highlight text to make it visible) that Brown had the title of National Finance Director for Obama's 2004 senate campaign. And yet, claims one blog, Claire Serdiuk was the real Finance Director — so maybe Vera Baker was getting paid off, or something. Another blogger wonders if Obama and Baker hooked up when Obama went down to the Virgin Islands for his elitist Muslim vacation.

The Mail reported that ABC News and the LA Times "have been provided with the woman's name," whatever that means, so maybe this smear, assuming that's what it is, will be debunked before the election gets any closer. Might as well get it out of the way now so we can move on to the next insane Obama rumor.

Obama is just establishing his Democratic bona fides. It worked for Clinton.

This would be the same website (Gawker) that published obviously false SAT scores from Sarah Palin (obviously false because scores are always divisible by 10). Oh and the same site that printed Sarah Palin’s illegally hacked e-mail.

But, darnitall, they are going to debunk rumors about Barack Obama come hell or high water. See, even the “new media” still acts like the MSM.

Is this meant to quiet any thoughts that Obama is gay or bisexual?

Hillary may have tolerated it, but I don’t think Michelle will! That’s assuming of course that this story is real. I don’t see any evidence that it is.

I might agree with you but it seems Michelle has already agreed to be silenced during most of the campaign and she now seems to be a Stepford Wife when she does appear. Therefore, she wants Barack to win this election and if she has to put up with this, then I suspect she will do so. Doesn’t mean she wouldn’t eventually get her revenge but I don’t think it will get in the way of the election and/or re-election.

I have no idea if the story is true or not but the Democrats have shown that it would not matter to them one way or another.

If the photo just posted is supposed to be the woman Obama had an affair with, the rumor is obviously untrue. (I'm not trying to be mean; just matter-of-fact.)

I was wondering when we were going to hear about bimbo eruptions. Unlike previous democrat spouses, Michele displays an odd disrespect and disdain for her husband that can only be attributed to possible shenanigans with another woman.

I always knew Silky Pony had a chick on the side strictly based on his own self-love and forced child-bearing on his wife. Someone with that large of an ego is seldom willing to not partake of everything offered to him.

Hey, if you were stucky with a shrill harpy like Michelle, I don't think you'd be too choosy about looks when you were looking for a comforting hand to hold, either.

Look at what Hugh Grant went for when he cheated on mega-hottie Elizabeth Hurley!

That’s what I was thinking..........better a female mistress than something thought to be even more unsavory. If we could catch him with she-males, THAT would be something, eh?

Interesting information. Beware the anger of a scorned woman. It goes all the way back to Jason and Medea and forward to Green and countless others. And women are getting meaner these days. BTW, women are as much a target of mean women as are the menfolk.

What does Vera Brown have to do with an affair with Vera Baker?

From the article:
Anti-Obama bloggers have already named the woman. They say she's Vera Brown, formerly of the fundraising shop Baker Wambu & Associates, now running Cape Carribean LLC. The Google cache of the firm's homepage, now offline, seems to confirm (highlight text to make it visible) that Brown had the title of National Finance Director for Obama's 2004 senate campaign.

Seems to switch back and forth, but if experience has taught me anything; always believe the very first thing you see.

Bare with me for a moment. Is Vera Baker tied to payments to ACORN? Who is Vera Baker and why did she go to Martinique. Is she the link to the Obama campaign and the fictitious donors found in the Obama finance records? Did she ever work with Tony Rezko helping Obama raise fund when he ran for his state offices. Did she and Rezko raise or move funds for his US Senate Run!

These are all viable questions that need to be answered. Rezko starts singing to Fitzgerald and Sunday the Cape Caribbean web site vanishes in to sunset as we started chatting about her on Free Republic with a lead from HillBuzz.

There are questions to be asked and answered. Why did here web site disappear yesterday when the posters of Free republic outted her web site and the possibility of her being tied to a credit card money factory for Obama in Martinique.

Was she Barack's love interest or just a Fundraiser bundler of soft money? She has ties and history raising funds for Barack and for the Congressional Black Caucus.

Why did the DNC allow the campaign to move from DNC HQ in DC to Chicago where David Axlerod and his minions could hide and control the dirty games that possibly have taken place with illegal contributions for across the world like the $35,000 from the Edwan Brothers in Ga. No that’s not Georgia but Gaza Strip in the Middle East. But we all know that Barack is a friend of Israel and that the Brother’s got carried away in the moment of donating $35,000 to Obama.

I hope that somebody has the sense to check bank accounts, credit card records and transaction prior to the election as this really reeks of money laundering. The FEC and other Government agencies need to make this a top issue before the election.

Did some of this Laundered money go to Acorn. Can an audit of Acorn's sources of funds be tracked to domestic and foreign bank accounts? We already know that Obama’s Campaign gave acorn more then 800,000 for voter registration. Wanna bet its bigger dollars from offshore accounts?

So yes this is a smoking gun! Does it involve Rezko ,Axlerod and Obama I bet it does. Does the Main Street Media pick it up! Probably not as we are just bloggers and speculators of what occurred and don’t have any power to do much about it unless we spread the word to our friends and fellow bloggers on the net. Please make your voices heard on the net.

” Michele displays an odd disrespect and disdain for her husband... “

She really does treat him with contempt in public , which emasculates him further.
Besides the size advantage that she has over Barry the Bantamweight.
She’s obviously the Alpha male in that relationship.

She told Vanity Fair (? ) that Obama was stinky in the morning and the kids didn’t want anything to do with him.

I can’t find it now, but, back in my postings a few months ago,
I found an article where Barry talked about how Michelle used to tease him all the time about his nose.
The same nose he told Dowd not to mention because he had been teased unmercifully about it.

ABC profile as quoted by Newsbusters June ,2008

” The Illinois senator joked about his wife speaking more endearingly of him on the campaign trail than she does behind closed doors:

“She never says such nice things about me at home!” he smiles. “I really enjoy listening to her praise me like that because when I get home she’ll remind me that I didn’t make the bed.”
