Duggar had a Facebook account under the incredibly fake name "Joe Smithson."
This Josh Duggar story just keeps getting deeper and deeper. If you haven't been following it and need a refresher, don't bother. Just stop reading now – you'll be better off. But if you really want to go down this rabbit hole, I'll indulge you.
Josh Duggar, the former star of the TLC reality show 19 Kids and Counting and a political activist for Christian family values and not being gay and all that stuff, was exposed as a serial philanderer who had accounts on Ashley Madison and OKCupid explicitly for cheating on his wife. Then he came clean, saying what we were all thinking when he announced, "I have been the biggest hypocrite ever." Now that you're all caught up, I'll give you a minute to shake your head and stare at the floor.
I hope that was satisfying, because there's another development for you to absorb. Intrepid Internet sleuths have researched the email address Duggar used for one of his two Ashley Madison accounts and found it linked to a Facebook account under the same alias: the profoundly unimaginative "Joe Smithson." As Radar Online reports, evidence strongly suggests that this account was used by Duggar to get his alter ego laid.
Smithson has 31 Facebook friends, all women from the area of Arkansas where Duggar lived before he moved to Washington D.C. to become an Executive Director of the Family Research Council. The account also follows pages for an exotic dancer from Arkansas, as well as a lingerie model. The status updates are true works of art, showing the same commitment to vagueness and lack of personality as his dating profiles.
The updates span from 2004, four years before Duggar's marriage, to January 14, a year after he started working at the FRC. Was he using this profile to bolster his identity so he could sleep with more women he met on Ashley Madison and OKCupid? Probably. Is this a new low for him? Not really. This is just housekeeping. Don't forget this part of the story.
