(NEWSER) – The tiny town of Leith, North Dakota, with its 19 residents, may soon get a population boost—but most won't be happy with the new neighbors. Infamous white supremacist Craig Cobb—wanted for hate crimes in Canada—has bought up 13 lots and plans to turn the almost-ghost town into a white nationalists' community where racists can live, fly Nazi flags, and commandeer city elections, the Bismarck Tribune reports. "Everybody’s wound up," says the mayor, whose phone has been "ringing off the hook" with residents wanting to know what Cobb is up to. It's "a flippin' fairy tale," he says. "None of us had checked out this guy."
