ASHEVILLE, N.C. – A tow truck driver refused to help a woman stranded on a North Carolina interstate because she had a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker on her car.
It happened Monday in Asheville when Kenneth Shupe of Shupee Max Towing in Travelers Rest, South Carolina, was called to pick up a stranded woman, WLOS reported.
“Something came over me, I think the Lord came to me, and he just said get in the truck and leave,” Shupe said. “And when I got in my truck, you know, I was so proud, because I felt like I finally drew a line in the sand and stood up for what I believed.”
A South Carolina attorney told WHNS that the tow truck driver is not breaking any laws because political affiliation is not a protected class.
The stranded woman’s mother posted to Facebook that she thought Shupe is a bigot.
“Trump’s motto is ‘Make America Great Again,'” she said. “And this kind of divisive behavior is not going to make America great again.”
