Stenehjem wants human rights complaint dismissed

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has asked the state Department of Labor and Human Rights to dismiss a complaint filed by a white supremacist.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has asked the state Department of Labor and Human Rights to dismiss a complaint filed by a white supremacist.

Stenehjem said during a radio news interview last month that Craig Cobb and his supporters "are not the kind of people wanted in North Dakota." Cobb alleges that's discrimination.

Stenehjem says that he has the right under the First Amendment to express his views just like any other citizen.

Cobb has bought land in the small town of Leith (leeth) and is trying to turn it into an Aryan enclave. He's currently in custody on terrorizing charges and does not have an attorney. No one has been answering his cellphone.
