A clown calling himself or herself Pat Payaso managed to get certified for the November ballot for the four open at-large city councilor seats.
"Payaso" is Spanish for "clown." Too good to be true? Well, of course.
BNN's Seth McCoy reports Payaso is, depending on the day, either former mayoral candidate Kevin McCrea or his wife.
McCrea ran for mayor in 2009, losing to Tom Menino and Floon.
UPDATE: David Bernstein reports McCrea has legally changed his name to Pat Payaso, which is how he could file formal campaign reports with the state without worrying about being charged with, being deceptive or something.
