Initial searches point to a 53-year old New Yorker by the name of Genevieve H Cook. This same search also indicates a woman who has very little contact history indicating a person who has purposely remained very private and careful to cover their tracks, or one whose public information has been recently scrubbed.
Genevieve Cook is the apparently “real” version of the admitted “composite”/fake version of New York girlfriends Barack Obama referenced in his autobiography Dreams From My Father. Cook, according to Obama biographer and Washington Post reporter David Maraniss, gave him access to her diaries detailing a nearly two-year on again off again relationship with the young Barack during Obama’s time in New York attending Columbia University. While earlier reports outlined Barack Obama’s friendship with various male roomates at this time, few details beyond Obama’s own words within his autobiography had been given regarding any female companionship in the time before Obama later met his current wife Michelle.
Now, just months away from the upcoming November elections, the figure of Genevieve Cook has forwarded as an real life example of a former girlfriend to Barack Obama.
Will the media now do its own due diligence into researching this woman?
For now, there does appear to be a 53-year old by the name of Genevieve Cook living in New York – which according to the details already released by the Maraniss biography, would likely be the same Genevieve Cook now being referenced in relation to Barack Obama since she was described as having been a “few years older” than Obama. Whether or not this Genevieve Cook has ever been married remains unknown, as does any information on her beyond the re-printed words of a diary she apparently kept those many years ago.
I welcome my readers to provide any further information you might uncover on this at present, mystery woman.
UPDATE: Thank you to reader “Cindy” and the folks over at Right Entertainment for this additional information on the still mysterious Obama New York girlfriend:
After they split up, Obama’s ex-girlfriend married an Egyptian accountant named Mohamed Moustafa and then went by the hyphenated name Genevieve Moustafa -Cook. The wedding occurred in October 1988, three years after her now famous fling. Her sister Francesca and brother Alexander were both members of the wedding party. You can still read the marriage notice of Mrs. Moustafa in the New York Times here.
A woman named Genevieve Cook joined a little known social networking site called italki in 2008. Her profile page was deleted within the past few days but we saved a copy, and at least for a time you can find a cached version here. In it is she says “I would like to learn Arabic so that I may read the Quran and pray properly.” We don’t know if this is the Obama girlfriend or not, but if so it will be fodder for his opponents.

Note: The cached version detailed by Right Entertainment appears to be from an American woman aged 21 – which would of course indicate she would not be the same Genevieve Cook linked to Barack Obama.
A brief public records search turned up only ”Elizabeth Cook” for New York, indicating she is no longer married to the Egyptian born Mohamed Moustafa. As noted in the wedding announcement link via Right Entertainment, she was to go by the last name Moustafa-Cook following her marriage in 1988. -UM
UPDATE TWO: THERE NOW APPEARS TO BE A LINK BETWEEN THIS GENEVIEVE COOK AND DOMESTIC TERRORIST BILL AYERS – BOTH ATTENDED BANK STREET COLLEGE IN THE EARLY 1980′S – WHICH IS ALSO AROUND THE SAME TIME COOK WAS ALLEGED TO BE DATING BARACK OBAMA.
NOT ONLY IS BILL AYERS INFAMOUS FOR HIS DOMESTIC TERRORIST ATTACKS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES, BUT RUMORS PERSIST HE IS IN FACT THE REAL AUTHOR OF BARACK OBAMA’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY – “DREAMS FROM MY FATHER”, WHICH INCLUDES REFERENCES TO OBAMA’S NEW YORK GIRLFRIEND WHO IS NOW SHARING REPORTED JOURNAL ENTRIES OF HER TIME WITH A 20-SOMETHING OBAMA WHILE HE ATTENDED COLLEGE IN NEW YORK.
THE RABBIT HOLE GROWS CONSIDERABLY DEEPER ON THIS ONE…
