Despite a breaking story that her husband visited a prostitute, Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow took to the floor of the U.S. Senate this afternoon.

Stabenow delivered a speech on the Senate floor on the need to help Michigan families fight foreclosure and lost jobs, and she repeated her call for an extension of unemployment benefits.

"I have a job to do and I'm continuing to be focused on the things that matter most to Michigan families," she told the Free Press.

The story of Stabenow's husband has all the now familiar sordid details … the prostitute, the internet, $150, and the Residence Inn. (Only the prices and the hotels seem to change, no?) But Stabenow is a U.S. Senator and today, she got up and did her job. Brava Senator. Later, a few of us will share our good stories about the Senator, including one I have from a few years ago when we shared a table at the White House Correspondents Dinner with…Ozzy Osbourne.
