The timing of Clay Aiken's Democrat Party political rival is causing some folks to ask questions. Aiken was in a tight run-off against Keith Crisco and while ballots were being counted, Crisco allegedly fell down in his home and died.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, "The entrepreneur who was locked in a too-close-to-call Democratic primary with former "American Idol" singer died Monday, his family said. , 71, died "after an accidental fall" at his home in Asheboro, about 65 miles west of Raleigh, according to a statement from his family."
Clay Aiken is seeking to become a political crusader for the gay rights movement and Keith Crisco stood in his way.
According to the Houston Chronicle, "Aiken was leading Crisco by fewer than 400 votes after the contest last Tuesday. If enough new votes turn up to make Crisco the winner, local will select a new nominee, state elections board spokesman said. If not, Aiken will be the nominee, he said. The vote is expected to be certified Thursday."
Crisco self-financed his campaign against Aiken with $500,000.
