SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A daughter of polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs said he sexually abused her for years when she was a child growing up in the secretive group, according to an interview aired Friday on "Megyn Kelly Today."

Rachel Jeffs, now 33, told NBC News the abuse began when she was 8 and happened countless times, despite her mother's attempt to intervene, before she confronted him about it in a letter at age 16.

Other former members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, including son Roy Jeffs, have also accused him of sexually abusing them as children. Rachel Jeffs has penned a book about her experiences titled "Breaking Free: How I Escaped Polygamy, the FLDS Cult, and My Father, Warren Jeffs."

Warren Jeffs is serving a life prison sentence in Texas for assaulting girls he considered wives. He does not have a lawyer and did not respond to NBC's request for comment.

2. I was wondering when someone would mention that sick fuckface.

I read on DU that during the election this week the local government has finally been voted out. They were part of the cult.

There's a headline you don't expect to read every day.
