Vera Baker: Enquirer Website Revises, Updates Obama Cheating Scandal


UPDATES at end of story


The National Enquirer has revised and extremely shortened their Obama Presidential Cheating Story. The old link is no longer working and a new link to a shorter story is now in place.

The new Enquirer web story is basically the same with less details than the old one.

Both the old and the new articles match up during the first several paragraphs.

UPDATED: Reports out of Washington, DC: PRESIDENT OBAMA has been caught in a shocking cheating scandal after being caught in a Washington, DC Hotel
with a former campaign aide.

A confidential investigation has learned that Obama first became close to gorgeous 35 year-old VERA BAKER in 2004 when she worked tirelessly to get him elected to the US Senate, raising millions in campaign contributions.

While Baker has insisted in the past that "nothing happened" between them, reports reveal that top anti-Obama operatives are offering more than $1 million to witnesses to reveal what they know about the alleged

What's extensively revised is the latter half of the story. Where there were once details--mostly of the alleged rendezvous-- now there are none.

Among those being offered money is a limo driver who says in 2004 that he took Vera to a secret hotel rendezvous in where Obama was staying.

An ENQUIRER reporter has confirmed the limo's driver account of the secret 2004 rendezvous.

The "DEVELOPING STORY" tag is still on the story, but the part of the "Enquirer Exclusive" about the independent collaboration of the story by a DC source" is missing.

* Vera Baker: Who is Vera Baker?
* Obama, Vera Baker: Enquirer Uncorks Presidential Cheating Scandal

We reported previously that the story was scheduled for an update in the next 72 hours and we were right--just not in the direction it has taken. However, the salient points of the story remain, only the details have disappeared.

What does this mean? One possibility: that the Enquirer wanted to let sister publication, The Globe, have a moment in the sun before taking over the story. The Enquirer has done work on this story and its the Enquirer which has the investigative resources.

What does this mean? Nothing, everything? Let the speculation begin.

There is somewhat of a precedent: During the first hours after the Enquirer released many details of the Edwards' scandal, the Enquirer's website went down and the page with the Love Child info on was inaccessible.

Readers spent 3-4 hours wondering what the heck was going on and wild rumors flew. Some of the speculations:
* Edwards had sued the Enquirer and forced the story down;
* The story was a Clinton dirty trick and after people had seen the post, it had accomplished its mission of damaging Edwards.
* The story was a fabrication and the Enquirer had taken it down before Edwards was able to sue him.

Actually, the Enquirer's website had experienced a spike in traffic. The next morning everything was fine, the story was up--unchanged--and the Mainstream Media pretended they didn't know anything about i and couldn't ask Edwards any questions.

There's more to this, check back for updates.
