Once again Josh Duggar has found himself in the center of controversy, this time for keeping an active account on Ashley Madison, a website that helps facilitate extramarital affairs, Gawker reports.

In May, he admitting to molesting two of his sisters ten years ago, resulting in the family’s TLC show being cancelled.

It all started last month when Ashley Madison’s database was hacked. On Tuesday, the hackers released the names, email addresses and phone numbers for many of the site’s members, including 27-year-old “family man” Josh Duggar.

A credit card belonging to a “Joshua J. Duggar” paid a grand total of $986.76 for two different monthly subscriptions to Ashley Madison. This included a $250 “affair guarantee” fee, which the website promises “increase[s] your chances of having an affair from possibly to definitely or your money back.”

The credit card’s billing address matched the home of Duggar’s grandmother, Mary, who lives in Fayetteville, AR, and the subscriptions were active from February 2013 through May 2015, right around the time when he confessed to fondling his sisters in their sleep.

He was paying for the subscriptions while also working as the executive director of the antigay Family Research Council.

So far, no one from the Duggar family has commented on Josh’s Ashley Madison account, but his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, have reportedly been busy pitching a new reality show idea in which they counsel young children who have been sexually abused.

“The family can’t afford to not have the show,” an anonymous source told Star magazine earlier this week. “It is their main source of income, and with a family of that size, without it they’re in enormous trouble.”
