Pop singer Kelly Clarkson, the first contestant to win “American Idol,” took a lot of heat this week after she sent a message on Twitter saying she supported Ron Paul and would vote for him if he got the GOP nomination. She was skewered for those remarks. But now she may have the last laugh as one site reports sales of one her albums are skyrocketing since the endorsement.
First, a little background from HuffPo:
“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance,” Kelly Clarkson wrote on Twitter and WhoSay on Wednesday. “If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”
