Josh Duggar, disgraced reality TV personality, is the first celebrity to be outed in the Ashley Madison hack. The former TLC "19 Kids and Counting" star reportedly had two accounts on the cheating website and paid close to $1,000 for extramarital affairs, Gawker reported.
A group of hackers on a moral crusade targeted Ashley Madison, a website designed to help married men and women find their next affair, according to the Verge. After threats were made to make the information public, the group finally released records for every user, including personal information like email addresses and credit card transactions used to purchase services from the site.
Duggar created his first Ashley Madison account in 2013, the same year he was appointed as the executive director of the Family Research Council, according to Gawker. The D.C.-based conservative lobbying group is dedicated preserving "marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society."
While heading the council, Duggar used the site to have an affair outside of his marriage with Anna Duggar. The couple tied the knot in 2008 and their ceremony was aired in a special episode on the Duggar family's TLC reality show, "19 Kids and Counting." They share four children together, the youngest of which is daughter Meredith Grace, who was born in July, as previously reported by HNGN.
Duggar's Ashley Madison accounts were linked to an address in Fayetteville, Ark., to a house owned by Duggar's grandmother Mary, according to Gawker. The leaked information also shows that Duggar paid an exact total of $986.76 for monthly subscriptions to the site from February 2013 until this May. Duggar allegedly listed "Conventional Sex," Experimenting with Sex Toys," One-Night Stands" and "Open to Experimentation" as just some of the sexual acts he was seeking on the site.
The Ashley Madison scandal is just the latest of Duggar's woes. He's still facing legal issues after molestation scandal broke earlier this year when he admitted to committing at least seven acts of molestation on underage girls when he was a teenager, two of which where his younger sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar, as previously reported by HNGN.
