I know, I know... it's The Enquirer - but hey, the National Enquirer is good with political sex scandals. They nailed John Edwards and Rielle Hunter and they also got Gary Hart and Donna Rice.
The Examiner also ran a story..
So the news is that a former member of his campaign staff, Vera Baker, is the focus of this alleged scandal. Baker was described in a 2005 article as being the the Finance Director of Obama's Senate Campaign. Shortly after that, Vera Baker was relocated to New York, and then Vera Baker was relocated to the island of Martinique. Supposedly Michelle wanted her gone.
In the Enquirer's article it states a limo driver's story:
On the condition of anonymity, the limo driver said he took Baker "from a friend's home in the DC area to the Hotel George where I learned later that Obama would be spending the night."
The driver recalled that he "waited in the lobby while she went to change her outfit.
"But to the best of knowledge she did not have a room at the hotel and she was not staying there so I thought that it was a bit odd."
The driver said he then picked up Obama at the airport and drove both he and Baker to various locations while he was campaigning for funds. Vera accompanied him to each meeting.
"About 10:30 PM, I drove them to the hotel and they went in together!"
"My services for the evening were done - and there was no indication she was going to leave the hotel that night."
A top DC source told The ENQUIRER exclusively that the driver's account had been independently corroborated by investigators who believe the couple spent the night together at the hotel. The ENQUIRER has also learned that on-site hotel surveillance video camera footage could provide indisputable evidence.
So could Obama have been messing around?
Perhaps "Yes He Can" may take on a new meaning.
Surely you remember this photo from July 2009:
Gotta admit - we do need some diversion from oil spills, financial reform and illegal immigration.
