List of Politicians Connected to Pedophile Josh Duggar

Josh Duggar was found guilty of possessing child pornography, which calls into question his ties with Republican politicians like Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. Many of them even affiliated with him after it became public knowledge that he molested multiple, underage girls, including his own sisters (but wasn’t charged due to the statute of limitations).

Here’s a list of every politician I could find who has ties to Josh Duggar. I’m not alleging these people are pedophiles — or even sympathetic to pedophiles — but I find it imperative that voters know which candidates chose to affiliate themselves with this monster.

I’m saying this ahead of time: Josh Duggar didn’t kill himself.

Jim Bob Duggar

Josh’s father, Jim Bob Duggar, is at the top of the list. After Josh confessed to him, Jim Bob waited months to report his son’s crimes to law enforcement, and when he finally did: he suspiciously chose to report them to Joseph Hutchins, who would later be charged for child pornography. Hutchins swept Duggar’s crimes under the rug and allowed the statute of limitations to pass.

Duggar is currently a candidate for Arkansas state Senate in the upcoming special election for district 7. He was previously a member of the state House before becoming the star of 19 Kids and Counting, a reality TV show.

Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee is a Baptist minister and former Governor of Arkansas who publicly defended Josh Duggar after he was outed for molesting young girls; he basically said that Josh is a good person whose “mistakes” should be forgiven. This goes far beyond mere affiliation.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders
