In May 2015, the family show, '19 kids and counting' was cancelled in 2015 due to revelations that Jim Bob's oldest son, Josh Duggar, had molested a number of young girls when he was in his teens. The victims included members of his own family.
In August 2015, after the hack of the Ashley Madison website, Josh admitted to being a member and that he had had a string of affairs.
Josh Duggar resigned as the executive director of the Family Research Council.
