Enclave’s End: White Supremist Sells North Dakota Home
Remember racist idiot Craig Paul Cobb? If you’re a regular Liberaland reader, you do; if not, he tried to start an Aryan enclave in Leith, North Dakota by buying up properties and inviting his fellow racists to move on in. the whole scheme collapsed when he and one of his toadies were arrested for menacing longtime town residents. And according to our friends over at One People’s Project, Cobb is selling his house:
White supremacist Craig Cobb’s house in Leith came under new ownership Monday, a development the mayor of the small southwestern North Dakota called “a huge relief.”
A judge on Monday also granted attorneys an extra three weeks to try to hammer out a plea agreement for Cobb, who has pleaded not guilty to seven felony charges alleging he terrorized Leith residents last November.
Cobb’s house and yard, which drew the ire of townsfolk and international attention last summer when they were decorated with signs and flags promoting Nazi and racist beliefs, were sold to Kenneth J. Zimmerman, who lives in nearby Carson and operates an auto shop there.
Zimmerman said he plans to clean up the property, paint the house and use it for storage.
He said Cobb called him from the Mercer County Jail in Stanton, where he’s being held on $100,000 cash bond, to discuss a possible sale.
Zimmerman said he’s not sure how Cobb knew he was looking to buy.
Leith Mayor Ryan Schock said he knew the sale was coming, but he wouldn’t elaborate. City leaders had tried to have the house condemned and demolished, but were told by the city attorney they didn’t have the legal authority to do so.
“After that house is out of (Cobb’s) name, it’s a huge relief today,” he said.
