Josh Duggar named Exec. Dir. of Family Research Council's lobbying arm in D.C.

Posted By on Tue, Jun 18, 2013 at 9:58 AM

Josh Duggar — the eldest child of Michelle and Jim Bob — announced last night on Twitter that he's taken a job as the Executive Director of FRC Action, the Family Research Council's lobbying arm. Duggar, 25, moved to D.C. with his growing family in May.

Current "alerts" on the FRC Action website: Abolish the IRS! Soldier punished for serving Chik-fil-A in support of DOMA! Horrors of the late-term abortion industry! FCC seeks to allow nudity on the TV! You get the picture.

Meanwhile, some blogs are already asking: how comfortable will Americans — via TLC's reality show TV cameras — be while following Josh around as he helps spread the good word for an organization that's been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center?

  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
