Josh Duggar: Messing Up at Work as Financial Problems Worsen

by at .  Updated at .

Back in May of 2015, when it was revealed that Josh Duggar had molested five young girls (four of whom were his sisters), fans were mortified.

Many hoped the outwardly wholesome hypocrite would be locked up.

Unfortunately, the first-born of the Duggars' 19 Kids & Counting was saved by the same statute of limitation laws that have kept Bill Cosby free.

But to paraphrase our favorite Duggar-exposing Facebook page, Josh's life hasn't been all pickles and hairspray these past two years.

Recent reports indicate that the 29-year-old Josh is depressed, frequently unkempt, and struggling desperately in his finances.

Insiders claim that Josh has been forced to move back in with his parents, and that mom Michelle and sister Jana Duggar are basically raising his kids.

All the while, he and pregnant wife Anna - who is currently expecting their fifth child (!) - attempt to work to repair their battered marriage.

And now, Josh has been forced to do something to do something that's been virtually unheard of in the Duggar family for the past decade.

That's right - Josh had to get a real job.

And we say "real job," we don't mean as a reality star, or a celebrity lobbyist, or any of the other BS titles Josh has held over the years.

No, Josh is selling cars these days, and according to the celebrity gossip insiders at Radar Online, he's not doing well in his new profession.

“He’s selling cars and he’s not doing very well with it,” a source tells the site. “He and Anna are struggling financially big time.”

Yes, it seems that despite his lobbying background, Josh Duggar's net worth is shrinking as he really isn't much of a salesman.

If we had to guess, we'd say it might have something to do with all those pesky molestation and adultery scandals ... call it a theory.

Anyway, sources say Josh is pretty much hanging on to his job by a thread these days following a colossal on-the-job error.

According to Radar, Josh recently allowed a "customer" take a Toyota MR2 for a test drive - and the guy never came back.

“He lets this guy test drive one of his cars and forgot to take down the guy’s driver’s license,” an insider tells the website.

“The guy drove away with the car and never returned! He just stole it!”

Pretty boneheaded move - one that led to local police getting involved - but believe it or not, it only got worse from there.

Investigators apparently learned that prior to stealing the car, the thief sold a gun to an employee who works under Josh.

Not surprisingly, the weapon in question (purportedly a handgun) was used in an aggravated assault earlier that day.

And ... wait for it ... the story gets even WORSE STILL!

The guy who drove off in the Toyota showed up on the lot in a Dodge Ram ... that had recently been reported stolen.

In other words, Josh Duggar handed the keys over to a dude who might as well have been draped in actual red flags.

We're guessing old Joshy is missing the cushy life of a reality star lately, but as we've seen (below), that ship sailed.
