ILLINOIS -- Call it politics with a sense of humor. A few Twitter users are poking fun at the candidates in this year's race for governor.

Someone's created a fake Twitter account for Republican Bruce Rauner @BaronVonCarhart, poking fun at the wardrobe he's been wearing to campaign stops.

Pat Quinn has a fake account too @PatQuinn'sBrain. Someone created an account for Republican Kirk Dillard, but that account's been suspended. Political experts say it's all fun and games as long as the candidates' brands don't get confused.

There is a fake account for candidate Bill Brady called @ShadyBillBrady, but it hasn't been active since the last time he ran for governor.
