Michael Turner, the propane dealer in Maine that is refusing service to any Trump supporters is in huge trouble with the law. Not for refusing service but for selling and delivering propane without a license. His license for selling propane ran out in 2014 and his license for delivering propane ran out in 2012. He has since been running an illegal propane dealership. To make matters worse for him, the area where he operates voted 60-40 for Trump, and dealers in nearby areas are expanding to his selling area, promising that they are very Trump friendly.
Central Maine reported:
Michael Turner, who said he would not sell fuel to anyone who voted for President-elect Donald Trump, has not been licensed since 2012.
A local propane dealer who said in a recent message that he won’t sell to anyone who voted for President-elect Donald Trump has been delivering and dispensing gas without a state license for at least two years, state officials said this week.
Michael Turner, who operates of Turner LP Gas Service on Canaan Road, left a message for would-be customers on his company’s voice mail, saying “If you voted for Donald Trump for president, I will no longer be delivering your gas. Please find someone else.” That message was left on a Friday, when the weather was bitterly cold. The message goes on to say that the cost of gas remains $110 a bottle, with payment due on delivery.
However, Turner is not licensed to sell gas.
According to the Maine Fuel Board, Turner’s propane license expired in 2012. Turner had two licenses, one for delivery and the other for dispensing, which expired in 2012 and 2014, respectively. The board became aware of the issue after the news of Turner’s message was reported by the Portland Press Herald late last week.
Turner is in danger of losing his business because of his insane hatred. He will be sorely missed…said no one.
