Michigan GOP candidate: Ignore my arrests for publicly masturbating in other people’s cars

Published

on

A candidate running to represent Michigan’s 95th House district in the state legislature wants you to know that once you look past his bizarre sexual fetish and multiple felony convictions, he is a rock-ribbed conservative Republican, whose “stool of conservatism” is held up by “faith, family and freedom.”

Michigan Live reported Friday that Saginaw’s Jordan D. Haskins dismisses the arrests and prison time as the results of youthful indiscretion and said that he is ready to “move on from that and do what I can” to serve his state as a Republican state Representative.

“I have dreams,” Haskins said to Michigan Live, “and I want to make a difference.”

Haskins, 24, has served prison time in two states and is currently on parole, but there are no rules preventing him from running for the state House.

On four occasions between April of 2010 and January of 2011, Haskins broke into vehicles on public and private property, disconnected the ignition wires, then started the engine. As the wires snapped and spit sparks, Haskins would masturbate to climax in a sexualized ritual he calls “cranking.”

Haskins has lived in Michigan and North Carolina and has lengthy criminal records in both states, dating back to the age of 15. Early offenses had mostly to do with breaking into cars and going on joyrides.

“I was just a lonely, angry kid at the time,” he said. “If anything, I could be put on ‘World’s Dumbest Criminals.'”

Michigan Live said, “North Carolina’s Department of Public Safety reports a lengthy list of sentences to prison, county jail and probation for offenses Haskins committed in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. The offenses include breaking and entering, larceny and trespassing.”

It was once he returned to Michigan, however, that Haskins started seeking sexual gratification from breaking into vehicles. He repeatedly broke into the lot where Saginaw Mosquito Control stored its sprayer trucks and other equipment.

Police reports obtained by Michigan Live say that “Jordan would remove the spark plug wires and sit in the car and masturbate while the motor was sparking and making noises.”

On another occasion, he broke into a lot where sheriff’s cruisers were parked. He confessed to joyriding around the lot and masturbating in a police cruiser and a truck. Then in January of 2011, he jumped a fence and broke into car repair business Scientific Brake and, police said, later admitted to joyriding in a truck, then “listening to the engine idle and masturbating.”

It is a fetish Haskins said he learned about online. For some “cranking” or “pedal-pumping” fetishists, participants derive sexual satisfaction from watching a man or woman who they desire struggle to start a stalled car, cranking the engine and pumping the gas pedal against the floor. In other cases, as with Haskins, the fetish revolves around starting the car oneself and masturbating.

Jalopnik reported that U.K. newspaper the Independent carried an article about the fetish, describing it as a growing trend.

Haskins said to the Saginaw News, “I was in a messed-up state of mind mentally and emotionally when I did what I did. That’s the only way I can even explain it.”

“I really had no friends at the time,” he said. “I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. I was one of those young people who grew up without a father in the house, grew up with his grandmother and his mom. I just didn’t really know what I wanted to do, what my purpose was, where I wanted to go.”

He hopes now that voters will see him as the man he is, rather than the troubled teen he was. Haskins said that he has found “my niche, my passion” in conservative politics.

“That isn’t even me anymore. I’m not sure what really changed or what happened. I don’t know what it is about when you get into your 20s. Your chemistry changes. You get wiser and smarter a little bit. That’s what happened to me,” he said.

Haskins is running in a heavily Democratic district, but he believes that his values will help him connect to voters.

“I want to be the Republican, the conservative candidate that says, you know, conservatism is for you. Because conservatism, real conservatism, true red-blooded American conservatism is about grit, hard work, loyalty and traditional values. Your family values,” he said.

“The three values that make up my stool of conservatism are faith, family and freedom,” Haskins said. “And I believe that many of the citizens of Saginaw share those same values.”

The primary to choose his Democratic challenger will take place in August.

George Conway declares ‘Trump is a racist president’ in brutal Washington Post column

Published

on

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway blasted President Donald Trump in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Monday evening.

Conway explained how he avoided thinking of Trump as a racist, despite the president's actions.

"No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive. He’s a pathetic bully but an equal-opportunity bully — in his uniquely crass and crude manner, he’ll attack anyone he thinks is critical of him. No matter how much I found him ultimately unfit, I gave still him the benefit of the doubt about being a racist. No matter how much I came to dislike him, I didn’t want to think that the president of the United States is a racial bigot," he explained.

‘He’s the one who hates out country’: Rep. Rashida Tlaib rips Trump’s ‘failed presidency’

Published

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) ripped President Donald Trump for his "failed presidency" during an interview on CNN following her press conference with the three other young women of color in Congress known as "The Squad."

"You’re a child of immigrants here to the United States," CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer noted. "I’m a child of immigrants here to the United States as well. And all of us can relate specifically to what’s going on, because I’m sure you’ve heard basically most of your life go back where you came from."

"As you point out, you are the first of two Muslim women to serve in the United States Congress. Why do you think President Trump specifically chose to paint the two of you as disloyal?" Blitzer asked.

Trump tries to change the subject by blaming Obama — then accidentally admits he’s putting kids in ‘cages’

Published

on

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.
