wp-admin cant login issue with google chrome

If I click on the “Site Admin” link in the Meta widget on this wordpress install in chrome on this laptop it goes to a redirect loop and never actually logs in as explained here:

I was able to identify the issue.  When visiting site.com/wp-admin the url is opening the following.

http://www.site.com/wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.site.com%2Fsite%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

Which in effect is saying, upon login go to the url that asks you to relogin.

If you delete everything after the ? and just visit http://www.site.com/wp-login.php you can login.  I will submit this issue with WordPress.

Of course the simple solution is to just go to wp-login.php instead… Ahh an hour wasted thinking my account had been hacked and the password changed.
