You notice there is a limitation of amount of characters. That is so you can write your question without all the extraneous material like "poor boy" and "not to mention many hours of legal work".

Perjury occurs when a person lies under oath during a court proceeding. Not just when someone lies. Most of the accountability for this sort of stuff is in potential removal from the position by the rest of the council, difficulty getting re-elected, and trouble working with others in the community in the future, not the law.
