Josh Duggar checks into rehab following Ashley Madison scandal
“His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others,” reads the statement on behalf of Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle. “He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear.
