Josh Wolf (pictured), the blogger and freelance news photographer who went to jail for 7 months for refusing to give law enforcement outtakes of a video he shot of a political protest, plans to run for mayor of San Francisco. If elected, Wolf, 25, said he plans to wear a video camera to broadcast mayoral business to the public. Wolf is one of 24 candidates who hope to defeat Gavin Newsom, who seeks re-election this fall. Wolf surrendered the videotape to authorities April 3 after spending 225 days in jail. Under a deal with prosecutors, he was not required to testify or identify any of the protesters shown in his video. (Photo credit: Jim Schneider, San Francisco Daily)
