The Josh Duggar scandal started when news came out that he had actually molested four of his sisters and also a babysitter when he was younger. Washington Post shared all the details of what happened. Jim Bob Duggar revealed all on Fox News.

“He said he was just curious about girls and he had gone in and just basically touched them over their clothes while they were sleeping; they didn’t even know he had done it.”

Jim Bob Duggar did share that they watched Josh very closely after this happened. They kept an eye on him and he even took him to work with him. Things changed at the Duggar household, but that didn’t keep Josh from being unfaithful once he became a husband and father.
