BISMARCK, N.D. | After being denied a restraining order by a court judge Monday, the girlfriend of a white separatist in Leith was back with another signed order Tuesday, this time served against her neighbor and city councilman, Lee Cook.

Deborah Henderson wants a court judge to stop Lee Cook from pointing an outdoor security camera toward Craig Cobb’s house, where she is living with her three children, and from being what she calls a “voyeur.“

A hearing on the order is scheduled for Dec. 30 at the Burleigh County Courthouse in Bismarck.

In the request, Henderson said Cook calls her names and on one occasion screamed obscenities at her from the bar in Leith.

Cook said he was installing security coincidentally the same day her boyfriend, Kynan Dutton, and Cobb, approached him while on what they said was an armed patrol of Leith. The two, at Cobb’s instigation, planned to take over the town for other neo-Nazis. Henderson followed the men with a video camera to record the patrol.

That was Nov. 16. That afternoon, both Cobb and Dutton were taken to jail and remain there on seven counts of terrorizing Leith residents.

Cook said he’s never been in the Leith bar and the cameras provide security in all directions from his house, including the road toward Cobb’s that the men walked down toward him carrying guns.

“I’m not taking it down,” Cook said.

A judge on Monday dismissed a restraining order Henderson sought against the Leith website developer.

The speed limit on Interstate 90 may be trimmed to 75 mph from Rapid City to the Wyoming line after recently being increased to 80 mph. Do you agree with the decision to return to 75 mph?
