James (Jim Bob) Duggar was an Arkansas State Representative from 1999 to 2002. After that he ran for the U.S. Senate, but lost in the primary.

In archived screen shots of his campaign site he states, "Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes."

Jim Bob's son has admitted to molesting girls as a teenager, including his own sisters.

His parents sat on the information for a year before notifying authorities.
