A cheating scandal way back to 2004 between then Senate candidate Barack Obama and Vera Baker has come alive after the National Enquirer has confirmed the limo driver’s account of the secret 2004 rendezvous and has also learned that on-site Washington D.D. hotel surveillance video camera footage could provide indisputable evidence to the investigation.
Vera Baker worked hard to raise millions of dollars in campaign contributions for Obama’s Senate run. Obama’s victory was easy after news of a sex scandal broke during his opponent Republican Jim Ryan’s divorce proceedings with actress Jeri Ryan.
Court Documents revealing statements by Jeri Ryan
Jeri Ryan said her then-husband took her on three “surprise trips” in the spring of 1998 to New Orleans, New York and Paris, during which he took her to sex clubs. She said she refused to go in the first and went into the second at his insistence.
“It was a bizarre club with cages, whips and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling,” she said in the court document, adding that her husband “wanted me to have sex with him there, with another couple watching. I refused.”
She said on arriving at the third club, in Paris, “people were having sex everywhere. I cried. I was physically ill. [He] became very upset with me and said it was not a ‘turn on’ for me to cry.”
[Jack Ryan admitted romantic getaways, but denied Jeri Ryan’s versions of the trip.]
Obama served three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. Following an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, Obama ran for United States Senate in 2004. His victory from a crowded field in the March 2004 Democratic primary raised his visibility, and his prime-time televised keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004 made him a rising star nationally in the Democratic Party. When Republican nominee Jack Ryan withdrew from the race after a scandal erupted involving the divorce of his wife, actress Jeri Ryan; Republicans approached former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka to run against Barack Obama. Mike Ditka declined the offer and Barack Obama was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2004 by the largest margin in Illinois history.
