I guess this is gross Republican week. You may remember the Duggars, the breeding Quiverfull family that were the subject of a TLC reality series, 19 Kids and Counting. Towards the end of the series, viewers were on the edge of their seats as Michelle, the mom, was about to deliver, since she had been advised by her physicians that she might rupture her uterus if she had another kid for Jesus.
That show came to an abrupt end when Josh, the oldest, was accused of molesting underage girls (including some of his sisters) as a teenager. He was also caught with an account at Ashley Madison. At the time those allegations surfaced, he was director of the lobbying arm of the Family Research Council, an anti-gay hate group. He quit that job and asked for forgivess.
Well, apparently Josh is going to have to get on his knees in front of Jesus again, since he was arrested yesterday for receiving and possessing child porn. I wonder if his wife will forgive him a second time, as she did when the Ashley Madison revelations came out, and Josh admitted to being unfaithful to her. She’s expecting the couple’s seventh child.
I’m thinking that there might be some child abusers who don’t work out of the basement of a DC pizza joint that doesn’t have a basement.
