Alycia Martin has been identified as the prostitute that Senator Debbie Stabenow's husband, Thomas Athans, hired for oral sex. The 46-year-old founder of TalkUSA Radio met 20-year-old Alycia through a Craigslist ad, paying $150 for the experience. If you think that's weird, then you need to check out the relationships section on your local Craigslist.
On February 26, 2008, Athans was questioned by police as he left the Residence Inn in Troy, Michigan, but he was not charged with any crime. He was unlucky enough to be caught in a police sting operation at the hotel, instigated by suspicious postings on online classifieds websites indicating prostitution activity in the area.
According to the arrest report on Smoking Gun, Alycia Martin is "described as being approximately 5'4", 110lbs, blonde hair, with tattoos on her wrist and hips, and a belly button ring" and "performed oral sex on Mr. Athans until completion."
What kind of savvy marketing encouraged Athans to book Alycia and raised the suspicions of the police? On February 11, 2008, Alycia Martin posted an online classifieds ad under the Detroit Escorts section of Craigslist-clone Backpage.com, enticing clients with an all-caps come hither:

Martin's MySpace profile, which has been set to private, has the following quote:
"**If you cant handel me at my worst, den you dont deserve me at muh best** Life too short for sadness alwayz smile its worth it no matter wut! BELEIVE IT!!
She'll need that positive attitude to get her through the tough times in jail.
The 57-year-old Stabenow married Athans in 2003.
