A southern Belle who will Lindsay Graham a run for her money
Gay singer and “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken is actively considering a bid to represent North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district in the U.S. House, according to two Democratic sources familiar with his plans.
The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the 35-year-old Raleigh native has taken initial steps for a run, including consulting with political operatives in Washington, D.C., about a bid for the seat.
One Democratic source said Aiken made phone calls to gauge support, talked to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and has met with figures in Raleigh, N.C., about a potential bid. Although it’s unclear when Aiken might formally announce a decision, the source said Aiken is “actively considering” it and “sounding and acting like a candidate.”

Disgraced New York City politician Anthony Weiner lost the election last night.
On hand to celebrate his defeat was the woman responsible for his downfall. Sydney Leathers dressed up for the occasion. Another Weiner supporter photographed Leathers in four-inch do-me heels and a bra that pushed the girls all the way up to Canada.
Her arrival at Weiner’s campaign party was an absolute surprise. She claimed it was her “duty” to be on hand. Single-handedly, she ruined Weiner, who -- coincidentally -- was using just a single hand to sext raunchy pics to Leathers.
Ever since, she’s been living it up during her 15 minutes of fame. Now that Weiner is gone, Leathers will have to get by on fumes.
"You may be as straight as an arrow, and you may have a friend that is as straight as an arrow,” she told the Journal. “Say you had a great job with the government where you had this wonderful health plan. I mean, what would prohibit you from saying that you’re gay, and y’all get married and still live as separate, but you get all the benefits? I just see so much abuse in this it’s unreal. I believe a husband and a wife should be a man and a woman, the benefits should be for a man and a woman. There is no way that this is about equality. To me, it’s all about a free ride.”
