Josh Duggar reportedly linked to accounts on Ashley Madison extramarital affair website
UPI News Service, 08/20/2015
Josh Duggar has reportedly been linked to having two paid accounts on the extramarital dating site Ashley Madison.
The website, which helps married users find others for affairs, was hacked in July by vigilante protesters of the site's leaver's fee, which deletes all the data of those wising to depart the service.
On Tuesday, the hackers released 9.7 gigabytes of user data they had acquired including credit card information, account details and usernames of at least 32 million Ashley Madison customers, including what appears to be the former "19 Kids & Counting" star.
According to Gawker, Duggar appears to have spent close to $1,000 for two subscriptions on AshleyMadison.com.
The site, while combing through the leaked data, found a credit card in the name of Joshua Duggar linked the the home address of Duggar family grandma Mary.
The card was used to pay for two subscriptions between February 2013 and May 2015.
Duggar is already in hot water after it was discovered back in May that the husband and father of four had molested five underage girls including his sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar when he was a teenager.
That lead to TLC canceling "19 Kids & Counting" after running for 10 seasons. Duggar also subsequently resigned from his position as the executive director of the conservative lobbying group Family Research Council.
