to remove picture of Black Caucus staffer Irene Schwoeffermann, who is misidentified all over the Internet as Vera Baker...

The cheating scandal that threatens Barack Obama's presidency has just now come to light thanks to the National Enquirer, Drudgereport.com, and a hotel surveillance video.

But many in Washington's close knit political circles -- including Hillary Clinton -- have known about the affair for years!

According to online reports, the Hillary Clinton campaign dug up background information on Barack Obama's mistress, Vera Baker, in 2008, but decided not to run with the scandal -- probably because Hillary knew she would lose the campaign and might need a favor from Obama later on.

This would explain why Obama installed his arch nemesis Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, and why he gave Hillary's husband, former president Bill Clinton, a cushy job in his cabinet as well.

But too many people in Washington know about Obama's affair with Vera Baker, who became the largest fundraiser for the Congressional Black Caucus.

Does Baker's split from the Black Caucus explain why Obama is giving the organization the cold shoulder lately? Could Obama be shutting them out because some members within the Caucus are spilling the teas about what they know?

Or did this story grow legs as a result of the recent departure of a certain social secretary who returned to the White House as the invited guest of HuffPo's Arianna Huffington because she couldn't swing an invite for herself?

Once the brewing scandal threatened to derail Obama's political career, Baker abruptly moved to the Caribbean where, they say, she was exiled by an angry Michelle Obama who learned about the affair.

This excerpt is from a blog post written in Oct. 2008:

The whispers focus on a young woman who in 2004 was hired to work on his team for his bid to become a senator.

The woman was purportedly sidelined from her duties after Senator Obama’s wife, Michelle, became convinced that he had developed a personal friendship with her. Read More...

But who exactly is vera Baker? According to her now deleted Cape Caribbean LLC web page (which you can see a screengrab of here), Baker claimed to work as Obama's "Finance Director" for his 2004 campaign for senator. But according to people familiar with Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign, Claire Serdiuk was Obama’s Finance Director.

Baker's bio also shows she divides her time between homes in Miami, Florida and Martinique in the Caribbean. This might explain Obama's frequent stops in Miami over the years, including a controversial $30,000-a-plate fundraising dinner at singer Gloria Estefan's mansion two weeks ago.

    Sandra that is not Vera Baker!!! I know the young lady in the pic and I'm sure she doesnt want her name in any of this mess.

    Maybe Hilary didn't expose Barry cause she didn't want to put Michelle in the same situation she was once in :coffee:

    Who didn't know when he won office that a story like this was bound to break sooner than later. They are throwing anything and everything at this man, but so far nothing has worked. Even if he is cheating, or has cheated, the only person who should be concerned is his wife.

    :cosign: @ MizzFedUp. Comes with the territory. We only had to sit back and wait for it...wait for it...wait for it...BAM! And here it is! Foolishness. I know it isn't Sandra who leaked this mess, so I can't blame her for blogging, but this is some foolishness. Now, is this the right lady or what!?!

    Sandra, please remove this woman's picture since you have already admitted she's not the alleged Vera Baker. I would hate for her to be attacked in any way because you just have to have a story.
