Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has removed endorsements from the scandal-plagued Duggar family from his campaign website.

The 19 Kids and Counting stars, once prominent fixtures on the former Arkansas governor’s site, have not been spotted on there since last week.

Huckabee defended Josh Duggar in the wake of the child molestation reports that surfaced last month, but now looks to be distance himself.

Last week he told Buzzfeed that “it will be up to” the Duggars if they would join him on the campaign trail, and hadn't issued any additional comment.

Actions speak louder than words, though.

By the time Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, along with daughters Jill and Jessa, spoke with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, he'd removed any trace of them.

Huckabee communications director Alice Stewart says his campaign had always intended to freshen up the endorsements bar on a monthly basis.

Still, it's hard to believe the removal of the endorsements is not somehow related to Josh Duggar molesting five underage girls when he was a teen.

The famous family previously endorsed the politician in 2008, and Jim Bob served as a representative from 1999-2002, in the Arkansas State House.

In 2012, they backed Rick Santorum, who is also running again in 2016, and says he is sickened by the Duggar scandal and praying for the victims.

He's not the only one.
