Congressman Aiken?

Hollywood has a long and sometimes ignominious history of cross-pollinating in the political sphere.  I mean, Arnold Schwarzenegger served for eight years as governor of California. Who the hell thought that would actually happen? So I guess it shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise that Clay Aiken, runner-up from the second season of “American Idol” who later became a gay icon for suburban moms everywhere, is allegedly considering a run for Congress in his home state of North Carolina. According to the Washington Blade, Clay will run as a Democrat and is seeking to challenge  Republican Representative Renee Elmers in the state’s second district. Clay has not only been a vocal supporter of marriage equality in his conservative home state but also appeared in “Spamalot” on Broadway. Which, frankly, should be a requirement of anyone considering a seat in Congress. [Huffington Post] [Image via WENN]
