Top Iowa Official’s Wife Found Guilty

Yet another local official is tied to a scandal regarding an election issue.

Kim Phuong Taylor, 49, of Sioux City, who is the wife of Woodbury County Supervisor Jeremy Taylor, was found guilty on charges related to election fraud.

She was found guilty of trying to “generate voters” to try to help her husband win a primary election for a congressional seat in Iowa’s 4th District.


Mrs. Taylor has reportedly submitted false voter registration forms, absentee ballot requests, and absentee ballots.

She was arrested in January on related charges, with prosecutors claiming that she had signed documents for voters without having their permission to do so.

Her efforts were in vain, however, as her husband still lost the primary election. However, he did go on to win the election for supervisor in the 2020 general election, the seat he had currently held.

Taylor was found guilty of 23 charges of fraudulent voting, three charges of fraudulent registration, and 26 charges of false information registering and voting.

Jeremy Taylor stated, "While this was certainly not the outcome we were hoping for, we respect our court system that allowed the jury to hear my wife’s side of the story.

"We are thankful for our friends, family, and community who know us best and have stood by our side."

U.S. Attorney Timothy Duax stated, “The right to vote is one of our most important constitutional rights. Ms. Taylor deprived citizens of their right to vote in order to benefit her husband’s campaign.

"Today, another group of citizens, fulfilling their civic duty as jurors, held her accountable for her actions. The guilty verdict is an example of how the justice system works to protect the voting rights of citizens and ensure fair and honest elections.”

I have always stated that I thought it would be nearly impossible to turn a general election with voter fraud but have also maintained that local elections are where the real problems lie.

I have seen local elections decided by less than 10 votes, with a recent case in Philadelphia where U.S. District Judge Paul S. Diamond was conspiring to certify false ballots.

In this day and age, there is simply no excuse for not being able to secure our elections better, and until they do, this will be a point of contention in every election.

That, however, is apparently what Democrats want because they push back against every measure Republicans try to put in place to make our elections more secure.
