Robert Bauer, Anita Dunn Husband

October 23, 2009 by sandy · 1 Comment
Filed under: Politics

Robert ‘Bob’ Bauer is Anita Dunn’s husband. Anita Dunn is President Obama’s White House Communications Director. Robert Bauer is Barack Obama’s personal attorney and the attorney for Obama for America since January 2007. Updates as available. See video below.

This power couple is in the news because Anita Dunn has recently made to controversial statements: (1) that Fox News is an “arm of the Republican party,” and that Mao Tse Tung is one of the two philosophers Dunn most often turns to [assuming for 'wisdom.'] That comment put her husband in the spotlight, because he is also a member of Barack Obama’s inner circle.

This report says Robert ‘Bob’ Bauer is Obama’s personal attorney, attorney on political matters, and he is also chief counsel at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and he is “the chief of the political law group at Perkins Coie headquartered in Seattle.



Bauer is considered “one of the nation’s pre-eminent experts on election and campaign finance law.” He is tending to Obama’s interests on the Rod Blagojevich matter. I was wondering if he represented Obama on his “natural born” status, and wouldn’t you know, WorldNetDaily has some of the answer, but maybe not all of it:

[Perkins Coie] …the Seattle law firm hired by the White House to defend Obama in court cases challenging his “natural born” citizenship status and thus, his eligibility under the U.S. Constitution to be president.

If Bauer has not argued in court to keep Obama’s “real” “long form” birth certificate away from the public, we know he must have worked behind the scenes. You’ll read below that Bauer is considered to be an “elite” and part of a “wiley group” in Washington, D.C.

Bob Bauer was counsel to Tom Daschle during Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial. He worked for the presidency of Bill Bradley and John Kerry. He actively worked against Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign by arguing union support for Hillary in Indiana was illegal.

From this New York Times article from 2004:

Mr. Ginsberg [Benjamin] on the Republican side and Robert Bauer, a Democratic lawyer, have established themselves at the pinnacle of an elite and wily group of Washington election lawyers who have been testing — critics say weakening — the new McCain-Feingold campaign-finance law, as politicians and parties try to navigate the complex rules to their clients’ maximum benefit.

Bob and Anita were featured as one of Newsweek’s Top Power Couples in 2008. In fact, they are the only power “couple” mentioned - they were designated “The Couple” in an article titled The D.C. Powers. You can see what is alleged to be the Bauer-Dunn’s home in Chevy Chase, MD by clicking here. Bauer is listed as a “partner” located in Washington, D.C. on the Perkins Coie website.

Official attacking network, anti-'birther' lawyer a couple

Anita Dunn


Attacking Fox News and defending President Obama is a family affair for Anita Dunn, the White House communications director who has blasted Fox as an arm of the Republican Party and talked about "controlling" the news media.

She's married to Robert Bauer, the chief of the political law group at Perkins Coie, the Seattle law firm hired by the White House to defend Obama in court cases challenging his "natural born" citizenship status and thus, his eligibility under the U.S. Constitution to be president.

Dunn is targeting Fox News with criticisms emanating from the administration that it isn't even a news network, while Bauer has done his best to prevent the American public from seeing a wide range of Obama's records that could prove, or disprove, his eligibility to occupy the Oval Office.

(Story continues below)





Documents concerning Obama that the White House has refused to release to the public include his long-form birth certificate and his passport records. Other records unreleased records that may be relevant include records regarding Obama's possible adoption by his Indonesian stepfather and college application and tuition financial aid records that would reveal whether Obama was ever registered as a foreign student.

WND previously has reported that Federal Election Commission records show $1,352,378.95 in payments were made by Obama for America to Perkins Coie while the law firm was representing him in various court cases which have sought to obtain his long-form birth certificate.

Obama for America, Obama's 2008 political campaign, merged with the Democratic National Committee in January and is now known as Organizing for America. The grassroots army that some refer to as "Obama 2.0" continues to solicit financial contributions on the BarackObama.com website.

Bauer, a Democratic Party partisan, has a long history of defending Democratic Party presidential hopefuls.

A biography for Bauer posted on the Perkins Coie website indicates he was general counsel to the Democratic National Committee during the presidential campaign of Sen. John Kerry and that he served as counsel to Sen. Tom Daschle, the Democratic leader in the impeachment trial proceedings of President Bill Clinton.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Bauer functioned as an "attack lawyer," threatening with FEC complaints groups wanting to run anti-Obama television ads.

Also during the 2008 presidential campaign, Bauer as counsel for the Obama campaign wrote letters to television station managers and to Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General John Keeney arguing that airing an anti-Obama ad pointing to the known association between Obama and Weather Underground radical Bill Ayers would violate federal election rules.

Also during the 2008 campaign, Bauer intervened on behalf of Obama to block the California-based American Leadership Project from running a television ad campaign over support from unions, including the Service Employees International Union.

Again, Bauer filed a complaint with the FEC alleging that the union-funded television campaign the American Leadership Project planned to run in Indiana against Obama was illegal under federal election laws.

In addition to representing Obama on eligibility cases, Bauer also is hired as legal counsel to represent the president in the criminal probe going on into the activities of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Last year, Bauer was at the center of the controversy over Obama's decision to reverse course on his promise to accept public financing for his presidential campaign after a meeting with Sen. John McCain's attorney, Trevor Potter, when Bauer claimed McCain did not want to reach a compromise on the issue.



WND previously reported Dunn's statements that Obama's presidential campaign focused on "making" the news media cover certain issues by controlling messages through videos produced and distributed by David Plouffe.

All the more reason that we need to end the whole 'professional politician' class in this country. Give them time, and not only will they elevate themselves to power, but bring their friends with them.

Focusing on tiny little bullshit certainly sells commercial time for Beck ("Her husband is his lawyer!")and gets the mental midgets all frothy mouthed, but how about the rape of the Constitution and impossibly bad foreign policy stuff? Quit with the silly distractions.

I thought that was the whole issue here. She is czar #87, can't get fired because her husband is the personal attny for nobama and she is openly praising the mass murder psychopath Mao. Its all part of the administration destroying the Constitution, the Republic, and our liberties.

and the fact that Obama's big priority is lining the pockets of his cronies on tax payer dollars while the population starves, the economy dies, the battle in AFG is costing american lives, etc.

There is no (2) "two" involved in that statement.

You fail so fucking hard.

This power couple is in the news because Anita Dunn has recently made to controversial statements: (1) that Fox News is an “arm of the Republican party,” and that Mao Tse Tung is one of the two philosophers Dunn most often turns to [assuming for 'wisdom.'] That comment put her husband in the spotlight, because he is also a member of Barack Obama’s inner circle.

This. As I posted, the fact that he's hussein's lawyer is not news. Beck is breaking something more interesting today I think.
