The Duggars are trying to polish their image with the help of a Mike Huckabee operative.

CNN Money reported that the Duggars’ public-image crisis is being managed by Chad Gallagher, Huckabee’s longtime political adviser and head of the Arkansas firm Legacy Consulting. Gallagher also oversees Huckabee’s political action committee, Huck PAC.

The family’s relationship with Huckabee apparently runs deep, with the Duggars having gleefully endorsed his bid for presidential nominee. Despite reports, it doesn’t seem to be waning.

Last week, Talking Points Memo reported that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s endorsement of the former governor had mysteriously disappeared from his website, though his communications director later told The Christian Post it was always part of the Huckabee campaign to “rotate new voices of endorsement in the ‘I like Mike’ section of his website at the beginning of every month, which is why Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s names no longer appear on his campaign website.”

…Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s decision to keep the matter from authorities for years, coupled with the statue of limitations expiring by the time an investigation was actually launched, likely prevented any sort of possible conviction. Huckabee was far more concerned that the Duggar sisters were exploited by the “illegal, unlawful release,” of information in police records.

    The Duggars, those pillars of morality, did exactly what Jesus would’ve done. They kept their son’s pedophilia from the nosy authorities for years, waited for the statue of limitations to expire so an investigation couldn’t be launched, and thereby preventing any sort of possible conviction.
    Besides, what does it matter now? Jesus already forgave them, so there’s really no need to send them to the slammer.

    It’s good they hired a PR person, maybe the story won’t go away to soon, It’ll be interesting to hear how many of the other children have been molested over the years in this “quiverfull” movement and not just the Duggars.

    The Duggars’ 19 Kids & Touching scandal (and cover up) occurred during the administration of Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
