Sen. Debbie Stabenow’s Husband Implicated in Prostitution Arrest

Yet, another prostitution scandal was triggered today with the disclosure that the husband of U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, Thomas Athans, allegedly admitted to police that he used the Internet to arrange for a prostitute to come to his hotel and paid for services.

Thomas Athans, 46, is the co-founder of TalkUSA Radio network. The admission was revealed by a Freedom of Information Act request by the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News.

He appears to have escaped a serious charge (common to such cases). The police stopped his car after he left the Residence Inn in Troy on February 26. They arrested Alycia Martin, 20, who was reportedly paid $150 for her services. Athans received a ticket for driving with a suspended license and paid a $115 fine. That puts him in the same category as Sen. Vitter in dodging a more serious legal entanglement, click here. Moreover, unlike Sherry Rowlands (the call-girl implicated in the Dick Morris scandal, here), Ms. Martin appears to have had little knowledge of or involvement with Athans.

Athans allegedly responded to the following ad:

Troy’s police spotted an advertisement online at which read “a young blond hottie here for your total enjoyment” in Troy under the name “Kasey.” The posting had rates for 15 minutes ($100) and by the half hour ($160) and hour ($225).

Of course, in comparison to Spitzer who paid thousands, this was a rather bargain basement deal, click here.

  1. TALKUSA! A LIBERAL radio network! What is with these liberals? Why do they all have to pay for sex and why aren’t their wives interested in them?

    Amazing stories.

  2. “They arrested Alycia Martin, 20, who was reportedly paid $150 for her services.”


    I am going to call Eliot Spitzer and see if I can represent him for consumer fraud. He was charged $2300.00 per hour for the same service.

    It is also curious that Alycia only had $150 on her which is less than the half hour rate and more than the 15 minute rate. Assuming no discounting, it means a tip of $50.00 which, of course implies, a 15 minute window of service. How embarrassing is that?
