Former 19 Kids & Counting star Jim Bob Duggar is currently in the running to fill a vacant Arkansas state senate position. He recently made a formal announcement, shocking fans and critics.

For those who don’t know, Jim Bob’s eldest son is involved in yet another scandal. Josh Duggar was arrested for receiving and possessing child pornography. His trial is on November 30. So, many people are arguing that this doesn’t seem like the best time for Jim Bob to run for state senate. However, the former Counting On star doesn’t seem to mind. Some fans wonder if he’s hoping this will distract from Josh’s trial and potential sentencing.

Now, Jim Bob’s campaign website has surfaced, giving voters, fans, and critics a closer look at his state senate run.

Jim Bob Duggar is slammed for grifting for donations.

A quick look at Jim Bob’s campaign site shows that there really isn’t much to see. There is some basic information about his family and his life in Arkansas. There’s also a donation section where voters can donate anywhere from $25 to $2,900 or a custom amount. On the website, there are no tabs to see his policies or any other details. Jim Bob is now being slammed because his site appears to focus heavily on donations and not much else.


On Reddit, Duggar family critics are dragging the former TLC star for asking for donations. One user writes, “Donate to Jim Bob Duggar? Nah that guy is rich.” Others accuse him of “grifting.”

Some critics speculate that he could be using the donated money for personal reasons or to cover Josh’s legal fees, though this would be illegal. One user writes, “What if his whole campaign is just a ploy to raise money for Pest’s legal fees?” Another speculates, “But does covering up your skeletons count as campaigning in a corrupt, twisted kind of way? Like…writing off as necessary PR?”

How much is the former TLC star worth?

It’s worth noting that Jim Bob already has a large net worth. The former TLC star is worth an estimated $3.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Duggar Snarks are wondering why he needs donations when his net worth should be sufficient.
