Kim Taylor sentenced for more than 50 counts of election fraud

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — The wife of a Woodbury County Supervisor has been sentenced Monday on dozens of election fraud charges.

Kim Taylor, the wife of Woodbury County Supervisor Jeremy Taylor, appeared in the federal courthouse in Sioux City Monday afternoon where she was sentenced to a total of eight months: four months in prison and four months of home incarceration. She will also have to serve two years of a supervised release that will start after the prison sentence. She must also pay a special assessment of $100 per charge for a total of $5,200.

Kim Taylor was found guilty by a jury on Nov. 21, 2023, to three counts of fraudulent registration, 26 counts of false information in registering and voting, and 23 counts of fraudulent voting.

The trial started on Nov. 13 with the final testimony and closing arguments presented on Nov. 20.

Kim Taylor requested an acquittal on Dec. 1, 2023, claiming there was insufficient evidence supporting her conviction. The state filed a response rebutting Kim Taylor’s motion, arguing that the families that testified at trial were more than enough to prove Taylor’s guilt. The judge denied the request on Jan. 18, 2024.

Kim Taylor was first arrested on the counts of voter fraud in January, when the U.S. Department of Justice accused that she was involved in a scheme to “generate votes” in the June 2020 primary election while Jeremy Taylor was a candidate for U.S. representative of Iowa’s 4th District and again during the 2020 general election when he successfully ran for Woodbury County Supervisor of the 5th District.

Jeremy Taylor was named as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a trial brief in the case, but he did not take the stand during the trial.
