Is This For Real?

Why do I feel like this Washington Post article, "Plea Deal for Woman Accused of Having Sex With Senator's Husband", should have been in the Onion? According to the story, radio executive Tom Athans, husband of U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow basically pulled a Spitzer. Apparently, even husbands of politicians are partaking of prostitutes. The article seems to have been written with just as much brief sarcasm as I would have written it and makes you ask:

· How does prostitution get reduced to trespassing in a hotel?
· Why didn't authorities bring sex charges against Athans?
· What happened in that hotel room for only 15 minutes?
· Is $10 per minute too little or too much for sex acts?
· How does he get off free and clear while she faces 90 days in jail?
· How are nude lap dances really any different from paid sex acts?
· Just how prevalent is the use of prostitution in marriages?
· Could you really sleep with a man after he's been with a prostitute?
