Josh Duggar's "indiscretions" may not have ended when he stopped molesting his sisters as a teenager, according to Gawker, which appears to have unmasked the first celebrity victim of the Ashley Madison hack. It looks like the eldest Duggar son, who's married, may have had two paid accounts on the infidelity website between 2013 and 2015, a period during which he worked as the executive director of the conservative Family Research Council lobbying group, Gawker reports, citing evidence including credit card data from a "Joshua J. Duggar" whose billing address matched that of a home owned by Duggar's grandmother.

The leaked account data shows that Duggar gave a long list of turn-ons—including "Tall Height," "Short Height," "Long Hair," and "Short Hair"—and paid $250 for a money-back "guarantee" that he would have an affair within three months. A source who has worked with the Duggars tells People that the leak has probably killed off any chance of the family returning to TV. "It was pretty improbable that there were going to be any specials on any of the Duggars anyway," the source says. "But now, with this, there's virtually no chance. It's basically just over now." (The leak has also revealed 15,000 government email addresses.)
