It's fairly simple. We have everybody except NWO and the other mayor claim withdraw lynch votes, and they vote for each other. We then have a few possibilities that may arise:
a) NWO is telling the truth, and there is no other mayor.
Result: We lynch a false claim. This will never happen, though, as nobody would be idiotic enough to falsely claim mayor after somebody else already claims mayor, as we could just do this.
b) NWO is telling the truth, but there is another mayor.
Result: No lynch. Firstly, two village mayors is highly
unlikely, and a mafia mayor is even more unlikely. We can probably discard this scenario, but if this were the case, we'd know that they were both mayor, as no non-mayor person would now claim mayor.
c) NWO is lying, and there is no other mayor besides the one that claimed.
Result: Mafia lynch. There's no reason NWO would false-claim mayor if he was village, and besides, cardflip is on so we know who he is if/when he dies. We'd have a mayor out in the open, but we're one up, so it wouldn't matter as much.
d)NWO is lying, but there is no other mayor.
Result: No lynch. But again, we can discard this scenario, as no non-mayor would false claim as mayor now???
And this is all assuming somebody else claims mayor. If nobody else steps up and challenges NWO's claim, we might as well accept him to be village for now. A mayor isn't exactly an uncommon role.
