Elected Official’s Wife Charged With 23 Counts of Election Fraud and More

An elected official’s wife has been charged with election fraud, although she is not a Democrat.

Kim Phuong Taylor, the wife of a Republican Iowa county supervisor, was arrested on suspicion of voter fraud.

She is suspected of providing fraudulent information on voter registration applications, absentee ballot request forms, and absentee ballots, or causing others to do so.

She faces up to five years in jail for each count if convicted.

Fox News dropped these details:

The wife of an Iowa county supervisor was arrested after she was allegedly involved in a voter fraud scheme.

Kim Phuong Taylor, 49, is accused of being involved in a scheme to generate votes in Iowa’s primary election in June 2020, according to court documents. At that time, her husband, Jeremy Taylor, was running a congressional campaign for Iowa’s 4th Congressional District, seeking the Republican nomination.

The Department of Justice alleges that Taylor submitted or “caused others to submit dozens of voter registrations, absentee ballot request forms, and absentee ballots containing false information.”

Taylor is accused of signing documents on behalf of voters without their permission and “told others that they could sign on behalf of relatives who were not present.”

She faces 26 counts of providing false information in registering and voting, 23 counts of fraudulent voting, and three counts of fraudulent registration.

The Justice Department says that she could face a maximum penalty of five years in prison for each count.

The Washington Times added these details:

Federal prosecutors announced charges Thursday against an Iowa woman they say attempted to falsely register and then cast ballots in the names of dozens of residents to help her husband, a Republican, in his elections.

Authorities say Kim Phuong Taylor, an immigrant who won citizenship, coaxed members of the Vietnamese community in Sioux City to rope them into voting in 2020, taking advantage of their limited English proficiency.

She pressured people to register to vote, then to request absentee ballots. In some cases, she then actually filled out the ballot, while in other instances, she had people sign for their family members, authorities charged.

“Taylor then took the ballots with her and delivered them to the Woodbury County Auditor’s office, causing the casting of votes in the names of residents who had no knowledge of and had not consented to the casting of their ballots,” prosecutors charged in the indictment.
