Political Sex Scandals: Two For the Price of One
Florida Rep. Tim Mahoney (D) comes from Mark Foley's former district. If I lived in West Palm Beach, I would consider moving, because there's something in the water.
Two years after Mahoney won Foley's seat (after Foley's sex scandal, Mahoney now has a fully bloomed sex scandal of his very own.
Below is Mahoney with his mistress, Patricia Allen:
Neither of them could win a beauty contest, but apparently she meets his standards. Too bad he's married.
The affair came to light when she found out that he was having an affair with someone else in campaign headquarters. This guy must be more active than a hormonally-flushed teenager.
So Patricia confronted Mahoney about the other affair and secretly taped the conversation during which he fired her on the spot.
She must have been more than angry, because releasing the tape is an admission of guilt in the state of Florida, where it's illegal to tape record someone secretly without their consent. So, Patricia can look forward to a few charges of her own.
Meanwhile, Mahoney is clamoring for help from the Democratic leadership. If they're smart, the only help they'll give him is out the door.
Yeah, yeah. I know. More unwarranted smears from the right. However, this little gem surfaced originally when Obama's biggest competitor was Hillary Clinton, and it initially came from her supporters.
Apparently Obama's been playing footsies with the hired help. This girl is Vera Baker, and there's a growing series of discussions and speculations about this pretty young thing.
From Hill Buzz we hear:
Who is Vera Baker?
Some people in Chicago claim she was Obama’s Finance Director for his 2004 Senate campaign. FEC Senate campaign records show she was paid a pretty penny as “Finance Director”.
However, people familiar with Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign say Claire Serdiuk was Obama’s Finance Director. Looking through everything we can see online for that 2004 campaign, Claire Serdiuk is consistently listed as the Finance Director - because that’s what she was.
There’s no mention of Vera Baker…but Vera Baker was paid as the “Finance Director” too.
And then, suddenly, Vera Baker was relocated to New York.
Right around the time Michelle Obama got incredibly angry about something. We know it was hard to tell, because Michelle’s angry about something on a good day…but this was EXTRA angry.
And then, even more suddenly, Vera Baker was relocated to the island of Martinique, where she remains.
Incidenally, Hill Buzz is a site run by self-proclaimed gay white male Democrats - hardly your classic defenders of staunch Republican values.
According to other sources, Baker is now on the payroll for a very big connection of Obama's who happens to reside in Chicago. What she can possibly do for him while she's located in Martinique remains a mystery.
