Sister-Molester Josh Duggar Sued Arkansas DHS, Probably For Calling Him A Sister-Molester
BREAKING NEWS! There was a missing detail in the accepted timeline of events surrounding Josh Duggar's molestation of five girls, including four of his sisters. As we previously understood, the sex-criming happened in 2002 and 2003, the Duggars reported it to a "family friend" cop in 2003 (who turned out to be a pedophile), and it was officially investigated in 2006. At that time, there was no chance of Josh being prosecuted, because, even with Arkansas's extended statute of limitations, the original pedo-bear officer in 2003 had done nothing about the allegations besides give the young boy a "stern talk," so the statute of limitations was expired. Oops, technicality, end of story, right? APPARENTLY NOT!
In Touch Weekly brings us breaking news (are they going for a Pulitzer or something? Take THAT, Seymour Hersh!) that AFTER the 2006 investigation, the case lived on and was turned over to two other agencies:
Police referred the matter to the Families in Need of Services agency, which has jurisdiction over minors. The Department of Human Services (DHS) was then brought into the case, In Touch has learned. Nine months after those agencies entered the Duggar molestation case, Josh Duggar sued the Arkansas Department of Human Services. A trial was held on August 6, 2007.
For point of reference, Josh Duggar was a legal adult in 2007.
So this brings up many more questions! What did DHS find that led Josh Duggar to sue? In Touch reports that the records, both of the investigation and Duggar's suit, are sealed, but a source tells In Touch that Duggar very likely “appealed the DHS decision or finding from their investigation.” Sounds like they found something!
That same source points out that one thing DHS might have been allowed to do in this case is restrict the time and manner Josh Duggar was allowed to be in the house, with his sister victims. This would have made the filming of 17 Kids And Counting (as it was called when it debuted in 2008) a little more difficult, we think! "Josh Duggar will not be appearing in this episode, as the Arkansas DHS has determined that there's an elevated risk of him diddling a sister under the craft services table. Tune in next week ..."
In Touch reports that the Duggars are keeping their traps shut about these investigations and why Josh sued the DHS and whether a nice lady from the state had to come over all the time to make sure the number of Josh's molestation victims didn't change as often as the name of the family's teevee show.
Wonkette must point out that the presence of DHS in this story brings us THIS MUCH CLOSER to finding out where the Duggars cross streams with Arkansas state Rep. Justin Harris. You remember him -- the one who "rehomed" his adopted daughters with a child rapist, because they were clearly possessed by demons. Of course, Harris laid the blame for the entire gnarly situation on the Arkansas DHS, for screwing him and his demonspawn family.
Maybe the department screwed Josh Duggar too! Maybe he was forced to diddle his sisters and have his parents lie about it and try to cover it up right before they scored a sweet-ass teevee contract. Yeah, that's probably what it was. Or maybe Northwest Arkansas is just FUCKING INFECTED with gross homeschoolers and other Christian fundamentalists who do bad stuff to kids. We're going to go ahead and assume it's the latter, k thanks bye, gonna go throw up now.
