GOP Iowa county supervisor's wife charged with 52 counts of voter fraud scheme to aid her husband

Des Moines Register

Republicans are right voting fraud is happening from people in their party.

Federal prosecutors say a Woodbury County woman committed widespread voter fraud to support her husband in two 2020 electoral races.

The U.S. Department of Justice announced charges Thursday against Kim Phuong Taylor, 49, of Sioux City. According to a DOJ press release, Phuong Taylor faces more than 50 felony charges, including 26 counts of providing false information in registering and voting, three counts of fraudulent registration, and 23 counts of fraudulent voting.

Court filings against Phuong Taylor were not available online as of Thursday afternoon.

Phuong Taylor is married to Jeremy Taylor, a former Iowa House member and current Woodbury County supervisor. Taylor, who is not identified by name or accused of wrongdoing in the press release, ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination to replace Rep. Steve King in Iowa's 4th Congressional District.

According to the press release, Phuong Taylor is accused of submitting or encouraging others to submit "dozens" of fraudulent voter registrations, absentee ballot requests and absentee ballots in the 2020 Republican primary.

After Taylor was defeated in that race, Phuong Taylor is accused of doing so again in his general election campaign for county supervisor. Among other things, according to the press release, she wrongly signed documents on behalf of other voters or told people they were allowed to sign documents on behalf of relatives who weren't present.

Taylor, who serves as vice chair of the county board, did not immediately return messages seeking comment, and it was not clear if any attorney is currently representing Phuong Taylor.
