What is is with Democrats and prostitutes?

The list of Democrat scandals is nearly endless, but when it comes to prostitution, you have to shake your head. Eliot Spitzer got caught, twice. Incoming NY governor David Paterson admitted to it shortly after taking the oath of office. Barney Frank admitted paying for a male escort named Steve Gobie, who was later found to be running a male prostitution ring out of Frank's apartment. Now, Senator Debbie Stabenow's husband was arrested for his involvement in a prostitution ring:

The husband of U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow told police he used the Internet to make a date with a prostitute and paid her $150 for sex at a hotel, according to a police report.

Thomas Athans, 46, co-founder of the liberal TalkUSA Radio network, was stopped by police who were investigating Internet-based prostitution at the hotel, the Detroit Free Press reported Wednesday in a story on its Web site.

The newspaper said it obtained a copy of the police report through a state Freedom of Information Act request.

In a statement issued by her office Wednesday morning, Stabenow said, “This is very disturbing and serious. Obviously it’s a deeply difficult and personal matter.”

Police stopped Athans' car after he left the Residence Inn in Troy on Feb. 26. They ticketed him for driving with a suspended license but did not bring any sex charges against him.

"He was very cooperative. He didn't tell officers who he was. He did not ask for any special treatment," department spokesman Lt. Gerard Scherlinck told the Free Press.

Police arrested Alycia Martin, 20, of Westland in the hotel room on a charge of prostitution and confiscated a cell phone, laptop and $431. There is no telephone listing for her in Westland.

Stabenow, a Michigan Democrat, and Athans married in 2003.

He started TalkUSA Radio in 2006 after leading programming at Air America, the liberal network that declared bankruptcy that year.

OK, so they didn't nail him on being a "john" of a prostitute, but he did have sex with her. He did pay for that liaison. What is is with Democrats and their inability to sleep with their wives? No offense, and I don't mean to be a pig here, but if you have to go outside the marriage to get something your wife doesn't want to do, it's time for some counseling. Marriage is a partnership. There's give and take. There are ways to get around certain things. You both have to work on it. There's obviously a problem in the bedroom if her husband has to go to a hooker to get what he feels is lacking in intimacy.
