(Newser) – John Edwards isn't the only Democratic candidate who cheated on his fairytale marriage, if the National Enquirer is to be believed: The tab claims none other than Barack Obama 'became close to" 35-year-old campaign aide Vera Baker, quoting an anonymous limo driver who claims to have dropped Baker off for a "secret rendezvous" at a DC hotel. The tab's a bit hazy on the timing of the dalliance, but the driver's definite Baker went in to the hotel with Obama, even though she "did not have a room."

It's not the first time Baker's name has surfaced, and the Enquirer claims to be hunting a hotel surveillance tape that will provide "indisputable evidence." Obama-haters, meanwhile, are purportedly offering $1 million-plus for anybody in the know to spill the beans.
