Clay Aiken Ministorm

Intermixed with a knock on Carrie Prejean, a story about losing a contact, an update on his next album, musings about possibly doing a PBS special and a review of the movie Precious, Clay Aiken posted a paragraph on his blog about the Wake County School board.

What happened to Wake County Schools?!?1 Now that i have a kid i am so much more invested and I am EXTREMELY disappointed that so many selfish idiots ran and won seats on the school board. i hope we can get rid of them as soon as possible before they ruin my school system. Idiots.

Mr. Aiken is a product of Wake County schools and a current resident of neighboring Chatham County, where he lives with his 15-month old son. In college, he trained to become a special education teacher.

When contacted by the Raleigh News & Observer, new school board member John Tedesco said it was "repugnant" for Mr. Aiken to call him an idiot when they've never met, he made an aside about someone finishing second (on American Idol) writing about those who finished first, then compared the blog comment to the title of the singer's last album, "Invisible".

A conservative activist, Joey Stansbury told the paper that he intends to file a Freedom of Information act request for Mr. Aiken's voting record because the State Board of Elections website shows that Clay voted in last month's school board election using his mother's Wake County address, while he doesn't live there.
