This has to be a joke:
Hercules Councilman Gerard Boulanger is 7th to pull papers to run in November.

No, seriously, a joke. Remember this?:
Revelations over the weekend that Hercules recall candidate Gerard Boulanger exaggerated his resume has led the Contra Costa Times editorial board to withdraw its endorsement.
Of course, Boulanger did not have to resign or not accept his seat (as was once demanded of him), but he has certainly not earned a second term — although he has the right to run. This is what elections are for.
