    Tow truck owner said he refused service to woman because she supports Bernie Sanders
    ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -
    A local tow truck driver said he refused to tow a woman’s car after he saw Bernie Sanders stickers on the vehicle.

    Kenneth Shupe said he was called to pick up a woman stranded on I-26 in Asheville on Monday.

    When he saw “a bunch of Bernie Sanders stuff” he said he told the woman, “very politely,” that he could’t tow her car because she was “obviously a socialist” and advised her to “call the government” for a tow.

    "Every business dealing in recent history with a socialist minded person I have not gotten paid," Shupe said. "Every time I deal with these people I get 'Berned' with an 'e' not a 'u'."

    Shupe, who runs Shupee Max Towing in Travelers Rest, said he is a conservative Christian who supports Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    Shupe said he has drawn a line in the sand not to do business with Bernie Sanders’ supporters.

    Sanders is running for president in 2016 on the Democratic ticket.

    “I respect their beliefs, and I hope they respect my views,” Shupe said Wednesday.

    The woman’s mother Kelle McWade posted an angry message on Facebook after the incident, calling Shupe a bigot.

    "Trump's motto is 'Make America Great Again'," McWade said. "And this kind of divisive behavior is not going to make America great again."

    Below is Kelle McWade’s public post:

    Heads up, friends.... Cass had a wreck in Asheville yesterday. She is fine, but the car was not driveable. We called our mechanic who was tied up in Easley at the time, so he sent ShupeeMax Towing to get her. Kenneth Shupee drove from Travelers Rest to Asheville, hooked up her car, and when he went around to the back, he came back and told her that he wouldn't tow her because she had a Bernie sticker on the back of the car. HE LEFT HER ON THE SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE IN NC, and DROVE AWAY. Spread this bigot's story far & wide. Btw, I'm guessing he's a Trump supporter. The only difference is that the Don would have taken the money, because he at least realizes that liberals' money spends just the same as anyone else's. Dumb (expletive) cost himself money driving all the way to Asheville & back for nothing. (Expletive).

    Greenville Attorney Steve Sumner weighed in on the situation saying,"We may not like it and we may not agree with it but I don't believe any laws were broken."

    Sumner said unlike race, sexuality, and religion, political affiliation is not a protected class.

    "As long as there is no contract between the driver and the tow truck company then there is no legal obligation for the tow truck company to pick her up," Sumner said.

    Shupee’s Used Cars LLC is in no way connected to Shupee Max Towing, and has nothing to do with the incident.

    So leaving a helpless lady stranded on the road is karma for you?

    that was very Christianly of this christian.

    would it also be karma if someone was shot in the head because they disagree with your political views?

    People suck.

    No other discrimination is more widely accepted these days, and even encouraged, than political!

    We have been divided. Played like chumps, and basically conquered. "We the people" are over. Half fall on one side, and half fall on the other in a battle of ridiculousness while they go down the shitter. Meanwhile the new "We the people" continue to rally the troops and share laughs in the big house on the hill.

    Is I-26 in Ashville a private road or was it built with big, bad government money? He should stand by his principals and stay the fuck off those Socialist roads or does his towing business depend on using them for his living?

    Agreed, Nacho cant even hail a cab in NYC but here he is making fun of the disabled. I think the outrage is more anger for our own short comings

    bernie was more conservative (and more correct) than most Rs on very important issues.




    bernie should just lie and and repeat BS talking points so Rs would like him

    Read this a couple days ago... pretty shitty.

    At least around here where there is one tow truck there are at least five others lurking shortly behind.

    THIS! You've gotta be a nut to put a bumper sticker on your car. Not to mention tacky.

    I imagine you're laughing because of the absurdity of a man who makes his living driving on roads he clearly isn't aware are laid and paid for by the government bitching about "socialism?"

    My brother's a firefighter in western Maricopa county. Lots of uber (and faux) libertarians who want the government out of their lives.

    Until the wildfires come. Then they're a bunch of a gaddam Communists, begging for governmental aid.
