Scary 2016 election attracts its 1st actual ghoul candidate

The Associated Press

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — An election cycle some have described as a fright appears to have attracted its first actual ghoul.

Signs are popping up around Bangor, Maine, advertising the campaign of Pennywise, the creepy clown from Stephen King's 1986 novel "It." The signs beseech residents to "Vote Pennywise" and include a picture of the clown showing his toothy smile.

Exactly what post Pennywise is running for is left unclear. The signs have been popping up around the downtown area of the city, the third largest in Maine.

King lives in Bangor and posted a picture of himself alongside one of the signs via his Twitter account.
