Debbie Stabenow Biography

As a biography, Debbie Stabenow was born in Gladwin, Michigan on April 29, 1950, so her age is 57. She spent her childhood in nearby Clare, Michigan. Stabenow earned both her Bachelor’s and her Masters degrees from Michigan State University. Before her career in politics, she worked with children in Michigan’s public schools. Debbie has been married to Tom Athans since 2003, and they have two children together, Todd and Michelle. Debbie also has a step-daughter, Gina.

After serving in Michigan’s House of Representatives and Senate, Stabenow became the first Michigan woman elected to the U.S. Senate in 1996. She serves on the Senate Finance Committee where her biggest issues are health care and education.

On April 2, 2008, Debbie’s husband, Tom, who works as a liberal talk-radio host, was questioned for his involvement with a Michigan prostitution ring. Athans admitted to paying for sex with Alycia Martin, and said, “No words can fully express how sorry I am.” For her part, Stabenow has said that this is a “very difficult and personal” time. It’s not clear how Stabenow has reacted to Athans, but for now it looks as though she’s at least removed a picture of the couple from her website. Take that, Tom.
