Cobb Complaint Against AG Rejected
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Department of Labor and Human Rights has rejected two complaints filed by a white supremacist who tried to turn the small town of Leith (leeth) into an Aryan enclave.
One of the complaints was against Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, who said during a radio interview that Craig Cobb and his supporters "are not the kind of people wanted in North Dakota."
Cobb alleged discrimination but state Labor Commissioner Bonnie Storbakken says her department found "no cause" for that conclusion.
Cobb has filed a total of 10 human rights complaints. One was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. Seven others are still being investigated.
Cobb faces a Monday preliminary hearing on charges that he terrorized Leith residents with guns — an accusation he rejects.
