The Duggar Family Supports Todd Akin

by at . Comments

Locked in a heated battle with Claire McCaskill, Todd Akin found himself on the campaign trail last week with unexpected supporters:

Michele and Jim Bob Duggar, the parents of 19 children and the stars of a TLC series about… the fact that they have 19 children.

Even if Todd Akin loses, let's hope he has learned the details of the Duggars Tater Tot Casserole recipe!

Akin, of course, was leading his race for the U.S. Senate in Missouri when he talked about the concept of "legitimate rape" in response to a question about abortion a few weeks ago.

But the Duggars are staunch pro-life believers themselves and headlined two days of rallies alongside Akin last Tuesday and Wednesday.

Republican leaders who once abandoned Akin have returned to provide endorsements and financial support now that his race is getting close and Election Day is nearing.

But are Michelle and Jim Bob setting a good example for their large brood by standing beside a man who used such terminology?

Decide and debate now!


There is no such thing as "Legitimate Rape!" I wonder if the Duggars have told their grown girls that they support a man that thinks RAPE is O.K.


It'll be interesting to see what happens, and they can do what they want, I'm staying out of this, etc.


I support Todd Akin for US Senate from Missouri and I am glad that the Duggar family and others are endorsing and supporting him.
