The co-owner of the neo-nazi compound is a former Democratic activist who supported Andrew Yang’s presidential campaign. The co-owner of the neo-Nazi compound in northern Maine may be prohibited from possessing firearms due to prior felony convictions, a significant obstacle to any plans to build an illegal racist militia in Penobscot County. Christopher A. Pohlhaus, 36, the public-facing leader of the neo-Nazi camp and related white supremacist Telegram channels, has drawn most of the attention from politicians and the news media for his racist public demonstrations, including a demonstration last week in Augusta. But Pohlhaus’s isn’t the only name that appears on the mortgage deed for the 10.6 acre Springfield property that was purchased in 2022 to serve as the base camp for the neo-Nazi’s plans. Fred Boyd Ramey, 47, Pohlhaus’s apparent Partner-in-Nazism, has drawn less attention despite his own checkered public history, including multiple guilty pleas to felony charges in Kansas, North Dakota, and Missouri. The two men apparently shared an address on Green River St. in Cheyenne, Wyoming at the time they purchased the land in Maine. Federal law 18 U.S.C. 922(g) prohibits anyone convicted of a felony from possessing a firearm, as does Maine law. The federal penalty for firearm possession by a felon is up to ten years in prison.
