Candidate put rivals names on tombstones in his yard

A township trustee candidate in Ohio has put a Halloween display in his yard that includes tombstones bearing the names of his political opponents.

Royal Barber of Sylvania Township near Toledo said it's all in good fun but some of his opponents don't agree.

One of Barber's rivals for township trustee thought it was funny when she saw a tombstone with her name. However, she said Barber should put more time into running his own campaign instead of decorating his yard.
