Cobb gives property back to Leith: White separatist Metzger says he won’t do the same


LEITH – White supremacist Craig Cobb has deeded his remaining property in Leith back to the city, Mayor Ryan Schock said Tuesday, calling it a “huge” relief for the small town that Cobb had targeted for turning into an all-white enclave.

Cobb purchased a dozen lots in Leith between September 2011 and October 2012 and moved to the city last April with hopes of attracting enough like-minded people to take over the town’s government.
