A new scandal appears ready to hit Josh Duggar and his family.
According to data released by the hackers of Ashley Madison, Duggar (a married father of four) was a client of this controversial adult website.
Last month, hackers announced that they had infiltrated Ashley Madison - an online property that arranges for spouses to cheat on their significant others - and were prepared to unveil the identities of all 37 million users.
Then, earlier this week, the hackers went ahead and dropped 9.7 gigabytes worth of stolen user account and payment information on a very curious public.
Based on this released information, per Gawker, someone using a credit card belonging to Joshua J. Duggar - with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas often shown on TLC's 19 Kids and Counting - paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions.
These subscriptions lasted from February of 2013 until May of 2015.
Moreover, the person who signed up for them checked off the following categories for his desire extramarital partner:
- Experimenting with Sex Toys
- Likes to Give Oral Sex
- Likes to Receive Oral Sex
- Bubble Bath for 2
- Good With Your Hands
This same individual, strongly believed to be Josh Duggar, listed himself as someone who is "disease free," "a good listener," in possession of an "average sex drive" and "good personal hygiene," among other traits.
In May, Duggar admitted that he sexually molested five young girls when he was 14 years old.
The victims included members of his own family.
The fallout from this bombshell has included TLC canceling 19 Kids and Counting, along with Duggar resigning from the Family Research Council.
A lobbying group in D.C., the FRC “champions marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society."
Soon after Duggar's sexual abuse admission, wife Anna Duggar released a statement that absolved her husband of his sins.
She wrote that Josh “humbled himself before God,” that he told her about his mistakes as a teenager and added:
"I want to say thank you to those who took time over a decade ago to help Josh in a time of crisis. Your investment changed his life from going down the wrong path to doing what is right."
She made these comments, of course, in reference to an incident that took place long before she met Josh.
How will she react now that Josh has seemingly committed adultery (or at least tried very hard to commit adultery)? We may soon find out.
Oh, and Josh and Anna welcomed a baby girl in July.
UPDATE: Oh, and Josh was also using OK Cupid to cheat on Anna apparently, exceeding his own hypocrisy standards and begging the question:
UPDATE #2: Coming clean as the universe's biggest hypocrite, Josh admitted cheating on Anna and being an online porn addict in a statement.
Wow. Will the first-ever Duggar divorce be on tap soon?!
