Has President Barack Obama been having an affair with Vera Baker? That's the shocking allegation made by the National Enquirer in this week's edition.
The publication claims Obama and Baker, a former campaign aide, holed up at Washington, D.C. hotel, and a "security video" could expose everything!
Baker, now 35, worked tirelessly to get Obama elected to the U.S. Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions, in 2004. They grew close since.
While Vera Baker insists that "nothing happened" between them, the Enquirer says anti-Obama "operatives" are digging hard into the alleged affair.
Some are reportedly offering $1 million for information confirming it.
Did Barack Obama and Vera Baker have an affair? That's the allegation of sources who claim the former aide is now his mistress - and claim there's evidence out there.
According to the celebrity gossip tabloid, a limo driver (anonymous of course) claims he drove Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous with the President.
He says he drove Baker "from a friend's home in the D.C. 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 my 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."
He says he picked up Barack Obama at the airport and drove both he and Vera Baker to various locations while he was raising money."About 10:30 p.m., I drove them to the hotel and they went in together! My services for the evening were done," he notes, adding that "there was absolutely no indication she was going to leave the hotel that night."
The Enquirer says the driver's account had been independently corroborated by investigators who believe the couple spent the night together there.
It also claims "on-site hotel surveillance video camera footage could provide indisputable evidence ... investigators are working to obtain the tape."
"If the tape surfaces, it will explode the scandal."
Okay, look. We don't believe this for a second. There are so many holes, we don't even know where to begin. When did the alleged cheating on Michelle Obama take place? Is there anything beyond them staying in the same building?
That said, we have to admit, we thought the same of reports that John Edwards cheated on his wife with, knocked up and tried to pay off Rielle Hunter. Look how that turned out. Granted, the Enquirer had 10 times more details there.
There's a big difference between a second tier candidate for President nailing some weird videographer and actually being President and having an affair ... then again, Americans would've given Bill Clinton the benefit of the doubt too.
Basically, don't believe the Obama tale without a ton more evidence ... but don't assume something like this can't happen just because it's the Prez.
