North-Dakota-white-separatist-Craig-Paul-Cobb-YouTubeLiberaland has been following the story of a white supremacist Neo-Nazi group that has been threatening to take over the small town of Leith, North Dakota. It started when one of their leaders, Paul Craig Cobb, started buying properties in the town and moved in. But his plans may have just gone down the crapper — the town…

… is facing water and sewer violations from the state and may be forced to suspend civic operations. According to the Bismarck Tribune, the state may declare the home of Leith’s white supremacist leader Paul Craig Cobb’s uninhabitable, forcing him to leave the town and seek shelter elsewhere.

Leith lies in North Dakota’s Custer District, and the Custer District Health Unit’s environmental health practitioner Aaron Johnson told the Tribune that an order expired on Monday which requested that Cobb provide his residence with running water and adequate sanitary facilities.

“I don’t know how the situation will progress, but the notice has expired and there is no extension,” Johnson said to the Tribune.

Much of what is left of Leith, ND is abandoned. Cobb’s property has no running water and it is believed that he is using an old outhouse on the lot. Adjacent buildings are run-down heaps, including an abandoned creamery. The state was in the process of condemning those buildings when Cobb announced his intentions to turn Leith into an all-white, neo-Nazi enclave earlier this summer.
