Yeah, but Spitzer paid a lower hourly rate

Story here.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow's (DEMOCRAT-MICHIGAN) husband, Thomas Athans, 46, was stopped by police who were investigating prostitution at a hotel, according to a police report obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press under the state Freedom of Information Act.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (DEMOCRAT-MICHIGAN) mostly kept to her schedule Wednesday, hours after news broke that her husband told authorities he had a $150 encounter with a prostitute.

Athans' involvement with a prostitute brought comparisons to New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who resigned last month after allegations he spent thousands of dollars on a call girl at a swanky Washington hotel on the night before Valentine's Day.

Troy police set up a stakeout at the Residence Inn after learning of suspected prostitution at a room there Feb. 25, the police report said. Officers said they saw Athans enter the room Feb. 26 and leave 15 minutes later.

According to my calculations, Athans paid a john rate of $600/hr. whereas Spitzer paid a john rate of only $477/hr.
