ND investigates white supremacist's complaint

BISMARCK — North Dakota is investigating a human rights complaint from a white supremacist charged with terrorizing the small town he's trying to take over.

Craig Cobb says Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem discriminated against him when he told KFGO-AM that Cobb "and his supporters are 'not the kind of people' wanted in North Dakota."

Cobb says that was intended to discourage him from practicing his religion of racism in the state.

He's being held without bail in the Stanton jail and says he hasn't eaten in six days as part of a form of spiritual enlightenment that ends in death.

Cobb told The Associated Press he'd be willing to sell his Leith house and leave the state if prosecutors drop charges that he terrorized residents with guns.

Stenehjem hasn't seen the complaint.
