Nude political candidate campaigns in Times Square

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City's Naked Cowboy may have met his match.

San Francisco Board of Supervisors candidate George Davis stripped buck naked in Times Square on Wednesday 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. He says nudity is a form of expression.

After Davis' speech he conducted interviews stark naked. Then he walked to where artist Andy Golub was body-painting another naked man.

Times Square Batmans and Elmos and other onlookers gawked, laughed and took photos while moving out of Davis' way. One man loudly read Bible passages.

Davis ran for mayor in 2007 and for District 10 supervisor in 2010. He has been arrested twice for public nudity.

Nudity is your form of expression. Do it in your own house not on a public street!

When you do it in front of me, YOU INVADE MY PRIVACY.

Get out of my way and my freedom to choose what I want to look at.

I have the freedom to choose to not look at YOUR NAKEDNESS, BUBBLE BRAIN.

First off there were no clothes around when Adam and Eve were walking about you tool. 2ndly, the way you phrased your asnine first question says you are NOT a "Believer" therefore why bring in people you don't believe in to make your point? Jacka$$.

As a woman, I'm tired of breastfeeding moms feeling like they have a cause to justify because they can't be bothered to find a private area in which to feed their children. If you can find a kitchen at home to eat in, you can find a private lounge area or even your car in which you can feed your infant. Just because you want what you want doesn't mean you aren't offending other people's sensibilities. Breast feeding is natural - so is sex and defecation. It doesn't mean I'm going to do either in public. It's actually called COMMON COURTESY. Look it up. Not everyone wants their children watching you either - it's called parenting so please respect others.

I applaud this gentleman for this same reason. Now we finally get to bring public morality to a head. Where do we draw the line? Who's right and who's wrong? We certainly weren't born with clothes. It's as natural as breastfeeding. The courts really do need to draw a line somewhere. It's called making LAWS to abide by.
