GOP Candidate says he has left his troubled past behind

SAGINAW (WKZO) -- A Saginaw republican running for the 95th District State House seat is regretting the fact that he disclosed to a reporter that he once had a fetish called “cranking”. 

In fact he apparently served two jail terms for breaking into cars, removing spark plug wires and pleasuring himself to the sound of misfiring engines.

24-year-old Jordan Haskins says he left all that behind him and is now a conservative, anti-gay republican, who had been endorsed by Gary Glenn and the Campaign for Michigan Families and other conservatives...until the article came out.  

He remains on probation. 

Now he is afraid his disclosure could hurt the party.
