(Newser) – San Francisco Board of Supervisors candidate George Davis stripped buck naked in Times Square today to campaign for the right to be nude in public. Davis spoke out against a 2013 San Francisco public nudity ban introduced by his opponent, Scott Wiener. His basic argument: Nudity is a form of expression. After his speech, Davis conducted interviews stark naked. Davis ran for mayor of San Francisco in 2007 and for District 10 supervisor in 2010. He has been arrested twice for public nudity.
