Video shows Dan Cox meeting Proud Boys member, accepting gift

New video obtained by The Washington Post shows Maryland Republican gubernatorial nominee Dan Cox greeting a member of the Proud Boys. The video, which was recorded at Cox's primary victory party over the summer, shows Cox shaking hands with a man wearing a shirt with a Proud Boys logo on it. The man handed Cox a comb as a gift, saying, "This is a present from Maryland Proud Boys to you." Cox sent a statement to 11 News in response, saying: "In the noise of the victory celebration, it was hard to hear what was being said. I was a surprised by him handing me something, and frankly, I did not even keep the comb. I had never seen him before, and I have not seen him since. I have no affiliation with anyone involved in violence on Jan. 6, period."
