Clay Aiken's opponent, Keith Crisco dies

We all know that the conspiracy theories are going to pop up soon after the death of Clay Aiken’s primary opponent, Keith Crisco. I have already read several stories that talk of potential foul play, some cite coincidences in the timing, some tasteless commenters have even managed to poke humor towards the event. It should be stated that Aiken was ahead on the polls, and it is pretty safe to assume that he was going to win. That being said, let us not lose sight of the real story here. A human being died, and with that, a family is grieving. So before we all get crazy with the accusations, conspiracy theories, and so on, let us take a moment and give our condolences to the loved ones of Keith Crisco. Politics are politics. The loss of human life is always a terrible thing. Rest in peace.
