Duggar Scandal - Who Knew What and When?

Some people who have followed the Duggar family have heard rumors about Josh Duggar since at least 2007. It was so widespread, one of the top auto-fill suggestions was "molestation" when Googling Josh Duggar. There are many websites and forums that discuss this rumor. However, there are a few sites where some people seem to have a lot of information that, at the time, sounded almost too shocking. It lead many to believe there was no way it could be true.

Looking back, everything mentioned in the forum posts is now turning out to be true. From the age at which Josh Duggar molested his sisters and another girl, to the Oprah show being the ones to go to authorities after Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did not, to Josh never receiving proper treatment. If the forum posts are accurate, it means it is almost certain that people at TLC knew about what happened with Josh and did absolutely nothing about it.

Here are screenshots of the posts and text of what is written in them...

To Ruth,
Let me tell you something about the precious Duggars that you don't know. First, Michelle hasn't bathed her younger children in years. It is all left up to the older children. They have children that have never seen the inside of a grocery store. Everything that you have seen on TV is staged. Big Time.
Michelle hasn't cooked a meal in years. Hasn't cleaned house in years. All she does is try to look norman for the TV camera's. Get real. This couple is out for the fame and money that they can get. They receive "Love Offering" from all over the country. They have church services in their home when it is to their advantage. They get paid for that.
He and his mother "Mary" has this all figured out. She is fame hungry and she couldn't manage this for herself and now she is helping out Jim Bob and Michelle. She calls different TV shows and exploits her grandchildren. This is the Duggar's way of making a living and providing for the huge family. Fame and Fortune In January, the whole family went to Chicago and taped Oprah Winfrey show. Oprah wined and dined them for one week. You know that had to cost some pretty pennies. As you may have noticed, that show never aired and it never will. Oprah was informed that Josh, the oldest son, had been molesting his sisters. Yes, this is the truth. Oprah turned them over to the Arkansas State Police Child Protection Agency and the Washington County Child Protection Agency. They have been investigated to some length. Jim Bob Duggar told the producers of the show that he built a small church out back for his followers. HIS FOLLOWERS. GET REAL. THE MAN IS A FRAUD. In April, they were in court with their story. They have to report to Arkansas Department of Human Services every six months.. They have lied and lied about their son to protect him at their daughters expense. For some unknown reason the boy is still in the home with the girls. God only know if this is still going on. In my eyes he is a CHILD MOLESTOR. HE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE HOME. What kind of parents cover up for one child and hurt the others. I do not believe that this is what God has in mind for them. Frauding the American people and taking their money and living off of it.
They did not build their home by themselves. They hired it done. The Discovery Health Channel and the TLC channel wrote them a check for over $200,000. for the to build the house. Everything inside the house was given to them except the kitchen. They did buy that themselves. The rest is all free. Mary and Josh was on the phone day and night asking for donations from soup to Computers. They also received a Baby Grand Piano from Campbell Soup Co. The trip to California was also provided by the TV Stations. It was mapped out. Mile for Mile. They did not spend a penny of their money. All the groceries and gas and lodging and clothing was paid for in advance. For someone who wants to be famous, why lie about the facts. Seems funny to me. They are professional liers, both of them.. They twist their words to make them look good and and look like devoted parents and a great big happy family. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you don't believe me, contact the Arkansas State Police Child Protection Agency in Bentonville, Ar. and the Washington County Child Protection Agency in Fayetteville. It will be worth the time and effort to read all about it. There is a lot more that I could go into but I simply do not have that much time. I think that is time the the Duggar's are stopped. They are pimping out their family for material things to keep them fed and clothed. If they cannot feed and clothe their children, don't have them.

People, trust me or not. I know this for a fact. God's honest truth that the molestation happened. It happened to four of his 5 sisters. The oldest daughter was not touched. The second daughter is the one who caught him doing this. There was no rape involved, but molested. I could go into detail, but I won't. Of course, you can find nothing about the charges. The Duggar's want to keep this hid. Wouldn't you? They wouldn't have the things that they do if it had gotten out earlier. That's the way that they make their living and travel at the expenses of others.
Jim Bob and Michelle are very aware of this happening and have chosen to protect Josh over his sisters. The family is to report to DHS every six months and that the girls are in counciling. This is what the courts ordered. Jim Bob and Michelle both tried to lie their way out of this, but it didn't happen. Just ask them, but they will just lie about it. They call their son "Precious Josh" and in their eyes he can do nothing wrong. What about the girls? I think that everyone should know about this problem and that the Duggars are frauds. They make the Talk Shows under the impression that they are pure and they receive "Love Offerings" from the viewers. He has got it figured out. How to be famous and make a living for his brood and not have to work to get it.

Well Robert, like you I was always very supportive of the Duggars. I've been in their home. I've even gone to church with them. Something just didn't feel right. For some reason I didn't trust Jim Bob. Then the truth came out about his son. He is the one that told what happened. Josh got up in front of the church and ask for forgiveness and all that stuff, but he was secretly still up to no good. I really don't know how long it had been going on before it came out, but even after it did Josh pretented to be this sweet all American boy who loved his family. All the time he was going on Prono sites on the internet and watching all the filth that it has. The temptation was too much and he explored with his sisters.
I know the person that contacted Oprah and told her that the family is not as pure as they seem. They were taking Oprah, the Discovery Health Channel, TLC Channel and everyone else that they have appeared on for a big ride. They receive money for each show, and if not money they get something out of it. Jim Bob has made the statement that is the way that he has to provide for his family. Don't you think that is being a fraud? If not, please explain what is the difference. They know that when they go on the shows that they lie and the more the exposure they have the more money that comes in to him. It was Oprah's decision the turn them over the the authorties. Oprah is not the only one that has turned them in for child abuse. Of course you can't find any records on this. It is all sealed behind closed doors. The truth needs to be told and I have made it my mission to stop this from happening. They are frauds and living off of the good graces of other people. I've watch them on the Montel Williams show and I wanted to throw up. It made me sick inside to know what I know and to watch them get in front of a TV camera and lie.

Robert, I think that I have been very honest with you. If you doubt all of this, call Jim Bob and ask him about it. First it was the pornography that he asked forgiveness for and later the rest came out..Not in church, but to some of the church members. Use your own judgement on this matter. I know what the truth is and that's all I'm gonna say about it. I'm sure you have the Duggar's phone number, if not it is listed in the book.

More can be read at the sources, but it is mostly posts asking questions of Alice who wrote the posts with all the information.

While it is mentioned that the girls received counseling, the counseling that they have been known to receive is through the Christian reeducation program called Journey to the Heart. Josh's "treatment" was being sent to work with a family friend for three months, helping to build a house.

Since so much of Alice's post can now be corroborated by the police report, what are the chances that no one at TLC knew what was happening with the Duggar family?
