On December 15, 2021, a special primary took place in Arkansas, and Jim Bob Duggar lost his bid for the Arkansas state legislature. Therefore, he will not be going to Little Rock to serve in the Arkansas State Senate Why should any of us be surprised? He lacks the integrity needed for that job.

Don't you feel that Halloween comes way too soon here in the United States of America? Everyone should have a choice on whether or not to partake in it. That is, they should be able to put a sign on their front door that reads, "Sorry. No candy here," without fear of stigmatization.
Since 2015, Josh Duggar has brought scandal after scandal to his family. Now he has gotten himself in so much trouble with the law that he could be facing a lengthy prison sentence. Yet, he continues to deny everything. Instead, he blames it all on Joe Biden and President Donald J. Trump.
