  • THAT WAS THEN: 2002 campaign material from Jim Bob Duggar.

Gawker's Defamer blog digs into the Internet wayback machines for some campaign literature from 2002, when Jim Bob Duggar ran for U.S. Senate. In the course of discussing his opposition to abortion in all circumstances, hsaid incest should be a capital crime (punishable by the death penalty).

Sexual contact within the Duggar family has been in the news of late, you perhaps have heard.

Also re the Duggars: TMZ reports more advertisers are seeking to end any association with "19 and Counting" the TLC reality show about the Duggars that has been temporarily pulled from the channel's schedule.

UPDATE: And how's this for a headline ouch!

This Isn't The First Time Mike Huckabee Has Sided With a Sexual Predator
The Duggars, Wayne DuMond, and Mike Huckabee's blind faith and opportunism.
