“19 Kids and Counting” son Josh Duggar reportedly paid for an account at the adultery site Ashley Madison.
Ashley Madison is an online dating site for married people who want to have affairs.Â
Last month the site was hacked, and today the hackers posted the hacked data, including names, addresses, email addresses, and credit card information of some 32 million members to the dark web.
Gawker has just reported that among that hacked data is the personal information of Josh Duggar, the man whose sexual molestation of five young girls when he was a teenager ultimately brought down the highly rated TLC reality TV show “19 Kids and Counting.”
In 2013 Duggar became the executive director of the “family values” anti-gay hate groupÂ Family Research Council Action, the political arm of theÂ Family Research Council, headed by Tony Perkins. He resigned when the sexual molestation news broke.
Also during 2013, Duggar maintained two paid accounts on the Ashley Madison website, according to the just-released report by Gawker, “Family Values Activist Josh Duggar Had a Paid Ashley Madison Account.”
“Someone using a credit card belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches theÂ homeÂ in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by his grandmother Maryâ€”a home that wasÂ consistently shownÂ on their now-cancelled TV show, and in which Anna DuggarÂ gave birth to her first childâ€”paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015,” Gawker reports tonight.
Gawker notes Josh Duggar was looking for a partner for these acts:
â€œConventional Sex,â€ Experimenting with Sex Toys,â€ One-Night Stands,â€ â€œOpen to Experimentation,â€ â€œGentleness,â€ â€œGood With Your Hands,â€ Sensual Massage,â€ â€œExtended Foreplay/Teasing,â€ â€œBubble Bath for 2,â€ â€œLikes to Give Oral Sex,â€ â€œLikes to Receive Oral Sex,â€ â€œSomeone I Can Teach,â€ â€œSomeone Who Can Teach Me,â€ â€œKissing,â€ â€œCuddling & Hugging,â€ â€œSharing Fantasies,â€ â€œSex Talk.â€
Gawker also posted other raw data attributed to Duggar that appear to read: “Iâ€™m really open! You let me know what your fantasy is and weâ€™ll do it together!,” and “Letâ€™s just see where this goes! Iâ€™m looking to have a steamy affair,” and “I want to have a good time with someone who is passionate… and see where it leads!”

Trumps Could ‘Turn on One Another’ as Investigations ‘Go Up the Food Chain’: MSNBC Analyst
Former president Donald Trump and his family are facing “existential” threats from ongoing criminal investigations in New York and Georgia, according to MSNBC political analyst and Trump biographer Tim O’Brien.
“I think you’re going to start to see this vice squeeze in,” O’Brien said Saturday. “The Trumps will happily throw underlings under the bus as this gets hotter. I think the question is whether or not the family members will turn on one another as it goes up the food chain.”
“The Manhattan DA’s case has existential consequences to it,” O’Brien added. “Donald Trump and perhaps his children could end up in orange jumpsuits if that case goes the full route. That’s not going to be the case with (New York AG) Letitia James’ prosecution, that’s a civil case. I also think the Georgia case has an existential threat. Donald Trump acting like a 19th-century ward heeler, called up the secretary of state and said find me some votes, and there’s proof of that, there’s evidence.”

Ron DeSantis Pounded by WaPo Editorial Board for Latest Attempt to ‘Poison Democracy’
In a scathing opinion piece on Saturday morning, the editorial board of the Washington Post trashed Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) for his plan to create an “election police squad” that board suggests will be used to disrupt elections and scare voters away.
According to the board, the DeSantis proposal reeks of Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn election results at the state level with them labeling the Florida Republican’s efforts a deliberate move to “poison democracy.”
Pointing out that DeSantis wants the Florida legislature to “pony up $6 million to hire 52 people for his election police squad — which, naturally, would be under the governor’s control and would investigate allegations of election crimes submitted by “government officials or any other persons,” the editors then warned, “If Mr. Trump had his way, government investigators would no doubt be impounding Dominion Voting Systems election machines and grilling election officials in Arizona, Michigan and Pennsylvania based on outlandish allegations about the 2020 vote. Whether Florida’s voting cops would field tips from partisans acting in bad faith or dupes who really believe that fraud is ubiquitous in U.S. elections, it is not hard to foresee them harassing election officials or voting rights groups who are simply trying to help people to vote.”
The editors added, “Mr. DeSantis’s proposal would be similar to an anti-voting law Texas lawmakers passed recently, which would threaten election workers with criminal penalties for transgressions as mild as proactively offering voters mail-in ballot applications. In both cases, the effect is to intimidate people into thinking twice about doing anything they fear state authorities might construe as illegal.”
They then concluded, “Mr. DeSantis, trying to rise from the former president’s shadow, looks as though he is trying to out-Trump Mr. Trump. Both seek to cater to a GOP base among whom fake allegations of fraud are not just believed, but considered a critical national crisis… Proposals such as Mr. DeSantis’s would only work to poison America’s democracy.”

‘Why Is That So Hard to Answer?’: GOP Candidate Squirms as CNN Host Forces Him to Admit Trump Lost
A Republican congressional candidate from Alaska finally conceded that former president Donald Trump lost the 2020 election on Friday — but not until after being asked the question no fewer than four times by CNN host Alisyn Camerota.
Camerota was following up on a story about another candidate for Alaska’s only House seat, Greg Brelsford, who recently left the GOP to become an Independent, citing “attacks on democracy.”
On Friday, she interviewed GOP candidate Randy Purham.
“So you heard one of your opponents, who was saying that basically he’s tired of all the re-litigating of Donald Trump’s election loss,” Camerota told Purham. “Are you one of the Republicans he was speaking of who believes Donald Trump did not lose the 2020 presidential election?”
“I’m not going to say that he did not lose, but we realize there are some irregularities with the election,” Purham responded, before Camerota cut him off.
“Just to be clear, do you think he lost?” the host said.
“Marginally,” Purham responded.
“But you believe that Donald Trump lost the election, and Joe Biden is the rightful president of the United States?”
“To a degree,” Purham said.
“Why is that so hard to answer?” Camerota asked.
“It’s not hard to answer,” Purham responded. “There’s a lot of issues that we’ve seen with the election, and we see how things are turning out right now with this administration, so —”
“But that’s different, Mr. Purham,” Camerota said, again cutting him off. “That’s different if you don’t like certain policies in the administration, it’s different than whether or not you can say definitively that Donald Trump lost and Joe Biden won.”
“I can, and I have,” Durham said, finally appearing to acknowledge Trump’s defeat.
It takes multiple questions to get the Republican candidate to say definitively that Biden won:
Question: Do you think he lost?
Question: But you believe Trump lost and Biden is the rightful President
