ARKANSAS – Josh Duggar, one of the stars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, has allegedly admitted to molesting minor girls when he was underage, reports.

In an exclusive statement made to People, Duggar said:

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.” reports Josh has since resigned from his position with the Family Research Council after these allegations became public, according to People.

    To those supporters of the Duggars, who have steadfastly supported Michelle and Jim Bob’s procreating like rabbits and using the kids to raise each other…I say: If it looks too good to be true, it is”.
    What access do these children have to a normal life? None.

      Those Dugger kids have had a better life then I have had. My mother use to beat me with a broom . I remember one time she hit me so hard a pissed all over. She would pull me up and down the stairs with my hair. So to me they have a good life.
