Skip to comments.Fairness Doctrine advocate Senator's husband nabbed with prostitute south of Big Beaver(censorship)
Posted on 02/08/2009 1:03:14 PM PST by bushwon
Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow has said she wants to re-introduce the Fairness Doctrine.
So to be completely fair, we dont remember this story from the Detroit Free Press (April 2, 2008) getting too much coverage:
Thomas Athans, the husband of U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow and cofounder of a liberal talk radio network, told Troy police detectives that he paid a prostitute $150 for sex at a Troy hotel in late February, according to a police report obtained Wednesday by the Free Press under the Freedom of Information Act Athans was pulled over by police on I-75 minutes after leaving the Residence Inn on Livernois, just east of I-75 and south of Big Beaver, the evening of Feb. 26 When questioned during the stop, he acknowledged he had been at the hotel with a woman he met on the Internet. On further questioning, he acknowledged he had paid the woman $150 for oral sex.
He was pulled over south of Big Beaver?
Please supply your own punchline.
Headline of the Day.
On route 69, Big Beaver is indeed South.
“Big Beaver”? I thought it was “Nice beaver”.
eh, I did not pen the title—just posted it ;)
Uh, if you read the article, it is a town in Michigan, but there is a certain “irony” in it as well.
South of Big Beaver? Did he miss?
I can see why he preferred the hooker to the wife
Puller over or pulled out?
Is this another Craig’s List love match?
Why did the idiot admit to such a thing? Just say, "I don't recall at the moment due to stress."
Some of us just call it “16 Mile Rd.”
Um...it also crosses “Crooks Rd.” No joke.
If it was south of Big Beaver, that might be why he was seeing the hooker. The wife prolly told him anything south of Big Beaver was off limits.
LOL! I guess so. It's on route 59, not 69.
The scandal is that a leader of the Fairness Doctrine revival has a husband who stands (or stood) to gain from her efforts. Who cares what the husband’s screwing? Liberal talk never makes any money, always goes bust, but Senatorette Nanny-nows gonna give her husband’s liberal talk shows some Affirmative Action if she can.
I didn’t see it mentioned that he was an executive CEO at failed Air America?
I've actually been on it.
Whoo boy, this could be trouble.......
it is important not to let leftists frame the argument. ask the mod to put censorship doctrine in parentheses next to the title.
In Old Testament times, the corruptocrat party members would have been compelled by the great I AM to wear sack cloth and ashes while shouting “unclean, unclean” to warn the decent citizenry of their passage.
Today, they strut and swagger before cameras, grasping tightly to microphones, push tax papers into dark corners, berate concerned citizens for seeking redress.
the 21 yr old prostitute (now 8 months pregant) just went to jail on the charges.
Stabenow’s husband was never charged, in return for his “cooperation”
Location, location, location!
“I didnt see it mentioned that he was an executive CEO at failed Air America?”
<<<I posted that link before in another thread about Bill Press radio show and the Michigan senator that is pushing for the “fairness” doctrine.See the link below that husband is exec of Air America...so her husband is in trouble with law—draw from this article what you want, tho an amusing title, to me this is just further confirmation of more “quality people” in power pushing for “fairness” doctrine...
uh it was I-75
I thought he paid for action North of Big Beaver.
Big Beaver must be an big old place.

<<Agreed, but idea is that a “FAIR” media would have plastered this all over the front page had this been a REPUBLICAN senator’s husband. If nothing else, the conflict of interest is noted in the thread.
“Just a point of information “Big Beaver” is actually a street or boulevard.
I’ve actually been on it.
Whoo boy, this could be trouble.......”
<<<To your first point, I stand corrected, on your second, I won’t go there (literally or figuratively...)
It is not a town in Michigan.Big Beaver Road is in the city of Troy.It is essentially 16 Mile Rd. Farther east,it is called Metropolitan Parkway.
Her husband founded a liberal radio network? No wonder she wants a “fairness doctrine”. Is there something wrong with this picture?
I’m dissatisfied with Debbie Stabenow, too. Just not like her husband.
There’s some things that just have to be seen in print.
This wasn't my joke... I'm only repeating it!
Getting south of big beaver often takes some doing
Header of the day.
This could very well be taking a play from the Clinton playbook...
Sen Stubby is pushing the censorship doctrine. It’s designed to silence conservative radio. Her hubby is an executive with a leftist radio concern. They stand to make money if their competition is put out of business.
What better way to cover up the blatant corruption than by hiding it with a sex scandal. You can bet that the media will never mention “Err America,” nor their ties to it, with Sen Stubby pushing the censorship doctrine.
And the “innocent” one in all of this is the hooker, who winds up in jail. She’s the real victim here. Well, her and liberty in this country.
“It is not a town in Michigan.Big Beaver Road is in the city of Troy.It is essentially 16 Mile Rd. Farther east,it is called Metropolitan Parkway.”
See earlier post, I stand corrected—but I did not make up the rather ironically humorous name of the “location” of the arrest. :)
If you look in the comments section of the article now, you can now see the online ad of the prostitute how lured Athans in.
Sadly, the MSM media and “Fairness(Censor)Doctrine” crowd did not seem to mention EITHER story very much and did not note the ties to her husband’s Air America Job in their reporting of the Bill Press interview! So this thread is posted to point out the fact that:
MICHIGAN Senator has conflict-of-interest ties to Fairness Doctrine advocacy thru her scumbag HUSBAND’s ties to AIR AMERICA—Michigan voters need to let her know they know her number!
Fact that people find it humorous with reference to “Beaver” just increases its page views.
And my point was that the whole “hooker thing” may have been a planned incident to hide everything else.
After all, it worked for Clinton. Instead of being charged with perjury and obstruction of justice, all we ever heard about was Bill’s escapades with Monica.
Senator and Mr. Stubby could very well have thought that he wouldn’t get anything more than a slap on the wrist (and he didn’t, for being “cooperative” in getting the girl locked up), while they’re able to hide their corruption with the storm that the media will generate from this “sex scandal.”

<<I agree in theory that it could be clinton move, but the sex scandal is almost a year old and did not seem to generate much controversy, so seems to me it was buried. Also, who knows what promises were made to bury the story?! To whom?
Looks like Lindsey Lohan has a new career.
Funny stuff ping
Talk about a tail....
Wonder if Debbie is going to Bobbitize him.
Time to make the commie vampires fear us.
