SALEM, Utah County — Newly obtained body camera footage shows what led to the detainment of a former Utah Senate candidate, hoping to represent Utah County, who was gathering signatures for his race.

In Salem police body camera footage obtained by KSL TV, the responding officer approached Michael Cook outside the Salem United States Postal Service office on March 29 at 2:05 p.m.

In the video, Cook greets the officer, saying he is doing good but is “being blocked by the lieutenant governor because I am going after Mike McKell, who is the brother-in-law to (Utah Gov. Spencer) Cox. They are unconstitutionally blocking me at the ballot box.”

Cook told the officer that the lieutenant governor’s office would not certify his win at the state GOP convention, and he would have to gather signatures to be placed on the primary ballot.
