Josh Duggar and his family have been through a lot over the years. When word came out about Josh Duggar’s sex scandal, nobody knew how it happened. Now, a woman is speaking out and sharing that she is actually the one who was the whistleblower on this situation, and she isn’t ashamed of her part in it at all.
Raw Story shared the details about what the woman says she did to the Duggar family and her reason behind it. She wanted to get back at the Duggars, and sharing this story with the world was her way to do it.
The woman is saying that the reason she came out regarding Josh Duggar’s past was because she wanted to punish the Duggars for their anti-LGBT activism. Sherri Townsend came forward on Facebook recently to say she was the one who spoke out. She decided to come forward after watching a 20/20 documentary on gay conversion therapy. Sherri went to Facebook and stated that she was the one who called out Josh Duggar and his family. However, there is no proof that she is the one responsible for blowing the whistle.
Here is what she had to say about the situation.
“I’m going confess/admit to y’all something that I did a couple of years ago that not very many people know was me. I told a reporter from InTouch magazine about Josh Duggar’s molestation/ pedophilia of his sisters and others, which broke the story and ultimately caused his resignation as the head of the Family Research Council and got his family’s hypocrisy filled show cancelled. Yep, that was me and I’m not at all sorry that I did it.”
Sherri says that she wanted to take the Duggar family down, and it worked. The Duggar’s show, 19 Kids and Counting, was canceled after this news came out. When the story first broke, Tandra Barnfield from Arkansas shared some details about the story as well. She didn’t feel it was a secret in their area, but the rest of the world didn’t know about it. She shared that it wasn’t very hard to find out the information.

Josh Duggar’s life has fallen apart after this news came out. They lost their show, Josh went to sex rehab, and he has been banned from the family’s new show Counting On. Things have changed for him a lot over the past few years. Josh is now going back out in public, but at first, he wouldn’t anything at all.
As the Hollywood Gossip shared, Josh Duggar is still listed on the family’s page. They don’t allow him on the show, but they do acknowledge that he exists. It is a bit odd, though. It shows that Josh works at Family Research Council, which he hasn’t worked at in about two years. And under future plans, it simply has a question mark. Everyone would love to hear what Josh is up to these days, but the family isn’t saying anything about him at all.
Are you shocked to hear that a woman is now coming forward to say that she was the one who revealed Josh Duggar’s sex scandal to the world? Do you think that it was really her? Sound off in the comments section below, and don’t miss new episodes of Counting On when they return to TLC this summer. However, viewers won’t see Josh Duggar on the show anytime soon.
