As Duggar Dad Ran On A Political Platform Saying Rape And Incest Merited Capital Punishment, He Was Covering Up His Son’s Actions

In 2002, Jim Bob Duggar argued that rape and incest merited the death penalty. But that same year, one of his own sons reportedly committed incest, and Duggar allegedly covered it up.

While running for U.S. Senate in Arkansas, the patriarch of the Duggar clan — the family that is the central focus of the TLC reality TV show “19 Kids And Counting” — said that rape and incest should be punishable by death. Yet during his run, he reportedly knew that one of his sons, Josh, had molested one of his daughters.

Gawker Media dug up a cached version of Duggar’s political platform from the 2002 Republican primaries.

When asked if he believed abortion should be legal if a woman had been raped, Duggar said, “If a woman is raped, the rapist should be executed instead of the innocent unborn baby. … Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes.”

Duggar lost the primary election in May 2002 to the incumbent, Sen. Tim Hutchinson.

While Duggar was running on a platform that included this position about rape, the first allegations that Josh had molested a child surfaced. According to In Touch Weekly, which broke the story, a female minor told Duggar in March 2002 that Josh, who was 14 at the time, had been sexually touching her as she slept. Josh admitted as much to his parents in July 2002.

A police report suggests that the first victim who came forward lived in the same home as Josh. In March 2003, more minors accused Josh of touching their breasts and genitals. The police report suggests that four of the five total victims were Josh’s sisters.

Duggar did not alert authorities. He reportedly did not punish his son at all, except to send him to live and work with a family friend for a while.

When Josh returned, his father allegedly took him to speak with Arkansas State Trooper Jim Hutchens, who gave the boy a “very stern talk.” According to In Touch, Hutchens is now serving 56 years in jail for child pornography.

The authorities first heard about the allegations in 2006, when an anonymous woman contacted “The Oprah Winfrey Show” with details of the accusations. The police launched an investigation, and In Touch reports five victims confirmed that Josh had touched their breasts and genitals.

Reportedly, the police did not press charges because the statute of limitations had expired.

The Duggar family could not be reached for comment. TLC did not respond to a request for comment.

20 Career-Boosting Actions to Complete Before New Year’s Eve

Did you know that January and February are two of the best months to apply for a new job or promotion?

The statistics confirm: It’s true.

December often feels like one of the “sleepiest” months of the year — full of holidays, lovely food and long, cozy nights.

But as tempting as it may be to hole up with a big mug of cocoa and pine-scented candles, try not to hibernate all month long. Use the next few weeks wisely — and get a head start on your job hunt!

We’ve got 20 days left in the month of December. Here are 20 career-boosting actions to complete before the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve…

1. Send a “thank you” note to a colleague, manager or mentor who helped or inspired you, this year.

2. Congratulate someone on their career success, this year. By celebrating others, you’ll reinforce that you’re a positive, encouraging person — two qualities that are on every employer’s wish list!

3. Order beautiful new business cards. (And then: revamp your personal website.)

4. Reach out to five people you’d like to connect with in 2015 and get a coffee date, walking date, yoga date or dinner party on the calendar.

5. Clean out your inbox and unsubscribe from mailing lists that clutter your inbox (and waste your time).

6. Choose two skills that you’re going to focus on improving in 2015. Then, decide how you’re going to develop those skills and block out the time on your calendar, right now. (A class… a seminar… a weekly writing group… whatever makes sense for you.)

7. Write down your biggest successes from the past 12 months. Read your list out loud. Practice describing those “big wins” with confidence — as if you’re telling each story to a hiring manager during an interview.

8. Write down your biggest mistakes from the past twelve months — and what you learned from each one. Read that list out loud, too. (Sooner or later, a job interviewer is going to ask, “What’s your greatest weakness?” or “Describe a time when you made a mistake.” Prep your answers in advance!)

9. Find a beautiful new template for your résumé. (Here are 275 free templates you can use!)

10. Read these 43 résumé tips that will get you hired. Revamp your résumé accordingly.

11. Contact an expert résumé writer to help you, if you’re still feeling totally stuck. (Sometimes, a second pair of eyes can make all the difference.)

12. Learn how to ace the 50 most common job interview questions.

13. Upgrade your professional wardrobe. The old adage, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have”… is quite true! (Here’s some style inspiration for job hunters.)

14. If you work from home, boost your focus by making your office a calmer, quieter space. Cut noise with carpeting, thick curtains or white noise machines.

15. Invest in a standing desk. (You won’t believe the health benefits.)

16. Reorganize your workspace. Remove clutter. Add beauty. Pin your goals or a project manifesto right in front of you, so you see the words, every day. (Need some inspiration? These workspaces are breathtakingly beautiful.)

17. Google yourself and see what comes up. Unflattering photos? Questionable social media content? Snarky blog comments? Put yourself in a recruiter’s shoes and make sure your online footprint makes a good impression.

18. Take your LinkedIn presence to the next level by adding a personal note when you send out invitations to join your network. (Not many people do this, which is a missed opportunity!)

19. Read a few career-boosting classics, like Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and Dale Carnegie’s How To Win Friends And Influence People. (Another top pick: It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be. It’s one of the world’s top-selling books of all time… for a reason!)

20. Be brave and start spreading the word. Reach out to 5 people you trust and tell them you’re ready to take your career to the next level. Ask them to keep you in mind and give you a “heads up” if new opportunities cross their path. Check in again in January, after the holiday haze has subsided.

It’s been reported that 80 percent of jobs are never posted or advertised publicly.

These kinds of jobs can only be discovered through word-of-mouth connections, personal introductions and referrals.

So by all means: spruce up your résumé, write down your big wins, de-clutter your workspace and dial up your wardrobe.

But more than anything?

Spend the next 20 days re-connecting with people you admire and strengthening the relationships in your professional network.

You never know what one follow-up email, “thank you” note or holiday card can do for your career.

Good luck. Here’s to an incredible New Year!
