The man who ran against former American Idol star Clay Aiken in a North Carolina congressional primary is dead, the Courier-Tribune reports.

Keith Crisco, 71, was found dead in his home, a representative from the Asheboro Elastics Corp, which was owned by Crisco, tells NBC News. Reports say he suffered a fall. He was reported dead at the scene.

Crisco and Aiken were locked in a too-close-to-call primary battle in North Carolina’s Democratic primary for U.S. House District 2. Crisco was trailing Aiken by just a few hundred votes and was waiting for the final count before deciding if he would press on in the race. Crisco’s advisors had told a reporter Monday night that they would evaluate what to do next in the morning. The Democratic nominee will face Rep. Renee Ellmers, the Republican incumbent, in the fall.

Clay Aiken released a statement Monday afternoon that said, “He was a gentleman, a good and honorable man and an extraordinary public servant.”

Kim Kardashian’s Insane Abs Were Actually ‘Painted’ In Those Nude Selfies

If you were mesmerized by Kim Kardashians abs in her latest series of naked snaps, you can now dial it back a little bit.

It turns out Kim had the benefit of having her stomach painted in the Snapchat photos she took after a midnight spray tan session thisweek.

How do we know for sure?

Well, Kimsspray tan artist, Fabiola Trujillo,took to Facebook to compliment her own work. In the process, the artist revealed she gave Kims abs a little touch-up.

Trujillo wrote,

While I was spray tanning Kim between layers as she likes to get dark she would go outside and took this snapchat while drying, have to admit spray tan looks pretty awesome on her and even painted her abs while spraying her!!

It makes sense, too.

As you can clearly see in the photo below, Kims stomach is actually atrocious in real life and does not meet the out-of-this-worldstandards of her spray tan selfies.

Yep, terrible.

Anyway, now that we know, it seems pretty safe to say that this should end all questions as to whether or not any insane feature on her body is authentic, right?

The Eagles Showed Their Coach Out With An Embarrassingly Fitting Finale

Matt Rourke / AP

Andy Reid, whose mustache is pictured above, is the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. He has been the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles since 1999, making his tenure the longest of any current NFL head coach. And today, with the Eagles’ 27-20 loss to the division-rival Washington Redskins cementing 2012 as the team’s worst season since Reid’s first year with the team, Reid has likely coached his last game in Philadelphia.

Despite Reid’s generally impressive level of success during his time with the Eagles — highlighted by five NFC Championship games, including one Super Bowl, over 14 seasons — there’s one feature of being a head coach that he’s never quite gotten the hang of: clock management. As in, at the end of games, he tends to either waste, misuse, or otherwise bungle the small amount of time remaining.

Today’s contest with the Redskins looked like it would suffer the same fate. Down seven points, the Eagles got the ball with four minutes, 15 seconds remaining. An eternity, in terms of one drive. And the more time there is, the more ways Reid could potentially mess it up. But his players had a surprise in store for him, and, in some ways, that surprise would be a fitting tribute to his years with the team.

3. With 18 seconds left, the Eagles ran an effective screen pass to LeSean McCoy. With 11 seconds to go, Philly had time for at least two more plays — maybe three.

4. They go with a quick pass on first down. It’s a good call — incomplete, but it leaves time for two more plays. Right?

5. Except, Nick Foles unnecessarily extends a dead play and throws it away at the end. He manages to get rid of it with a second to go, but the problem is, it’s an illegal forward pass — the ball never crosses the line of scrimmage.

After the two-minute warning, an offensive penalty results in a 10-second runoff. And because there was only a second left on the clock at the time of the illegal forward pass — if Foles had only thrown it away properly, he would have gotten another shot — that meant that what was almost certainly Andy Reid’s last home game as the Eagles’ head coach ended on a clock technicality.

6. (Here’s video of that final play and the clock runoff.)
