The same way Prince Charles gets to be King of England: he's a member of the Lucky Sperm Club.
Or, in Josh Duggar's case, born into a family that created a profitable business from a novel cross-pollenization of voyeurism, a frenzied schedule of copulatio that has kept Mrs Duggar pregnant for fourteen of the last 26 years, and moral preening:
From June 2013 to May 2015, Duggar was appointed the Executive Director of FRC Action, the non-profit political action and lobbying arm of the Family Research Council. He said at the time that his role would be "engaging the grassroots and taking the message of faith, family and freedom all across America". Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, said that by hiring Duggar they hoped to appeal to more young people and exploit the popularity of his TV series...
Duggar advocates for family-centered conservative Christian viewpoints, including opposition to abortion, divorce, and gay marriage. He has described his extended family as the "epitome of conservative values"...Among the features of epitomization are these:
They only watch programs they consider to be wholesome family television and various historical events. Their Internet service is filtered. They adhere to certain standards of modesty in clothing in accordance with their religious beliefs. Shorts and tank tops are prohibited, and the women do not wear skirts with a length above the knee. According to Michelle, the Duggars feel that exposure of the thighs amounts to "nakedness and shame", and runs the risk of "defrauding" others by encouraging lustful thoughts. They avoid beaches and swimming in public to negate the possibility of exposure to other women and "lustful thoughts" by their men. Female family members do not cut their hair short, and males are clean-shaven and short-haired. They practice chaperoned courtship, instead of typical dating, which includes rules against such things as any physical contact. The suitor must ask permission from the young woman's father before approaching her for a courtship and before proposing to her.
The Duggars use a buddy system to raise their children, in which an older child is assigned to a younger sibling and assists in the latter's primary care. According to Michelle, "They help with their little phonics lessons and games during the day and help them practice their music lessons. They will play with them or help them pick out the color of their outfit that day, and just all of those types of things."Duggar resigned his position at The Family Research Council on May 21, after his history of sexual misconduct as a child became public from the magazine report. Duggar publicly admitted that he "acted inexcusably" as a teen and said he was "deeply sorry" for what he called his wrongdoings. In response to Duggar's resignation, FRC president Tony Perkins stated "Josh believes that the situation will make it difficult for him to be effective in his current work."
Here's a montage of Duggar hanging with 18 leading Republicans, including pretty much everyone running, or thinking of running, for president.
So far, none of the Republicans have disassociated themselves from the lad.
