Josh and Anna Duggar: Leaving D.C., Returning to Arkansas

by at .

Molestation scandal-plagued Josh Duggar and family are packing up and leaving Washington, D.C., for his native Arkansas, according to  reports.

Anna and Josh

Disgraced Josh resigned from the Family Research Council, where he was a central figure, in the wake of stunning revelations of child molestation.

As a teenager, he sexually abused his own sisters and was investigated by police, a secret his family covered up for more than a decade.

Wife Anna Duggar says he confessed all this to her early on, but she's about the only one who wants to be seen with this guy at this point.

Now a pariah even in his own backyard, Josh and his family are relocating to a foreclosure property in Siloam Springs, Ark., to rebuild his life.

The Duggars got a great deal on the property, paying just $55,000; it last sold for $212,135 only a few years ago before falling into disrepair.

You could say that it needs some ... wait, wait ... TLC.

The 3,000-square foot property was built in 2000, boating plenty of space for a family that will no doubt get much bigger in the coming years.

Anna Duggar forgives Josh, so it's not likely he'll be banished to the guest room anytime ... although this place does have five bedrooms, so ...

Good thing, as Anna is pregnant with the couple's fourth child right now. Only two bathrooms, though, so that could be tricky. Still, $55,000!

We're talking cheap. Annual taxes for the two-acre home will run only $1,575 a year; given that they owe $14,000 in unpaid taxes, that's huge.
