Candidate for San Francisco Board of Supervisors fights nudity ban by being nude in Times Square

If you're going to protest a ban on public nudity, you might as well strip down to nothing and head to one of the busiest places in the world.

George Davis is running for a spot on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and on Wednesday took his campaign across the country to New York City. There, among the Elmos and Dora the Explorers in Times Square, he talked about how being nude is a form of expression and why he is against the ban, which his opponent Scott Wiener introduced in 2013.

This time, he was able to meander around Times Square sans clothes in peace, but he hasn't always been so lucky — Davis has been arrested for public nudity twice.
