The wife of a Woodbury County supervisor (R) convicted of voter fraud is sentenced to four months in prison

Kim Phuong Taylor faced up to five years in prison on 52 counts of voter fraud. The federal judge worried the public might see the case as politically motivated.

The wife of a Woodbury County Supervisor convicted of 52 counts of voter fraud will spend four months in federal prison, followed by four months of house arrest.

A federal judge sentenced Kim Phuong Taylor on Monday afternoon in Sioux City. The mother of six will also serve two years of supervised release, including the home incarceration.

Federal prosecutors had pushed for 18 to 24 months. Taylor faced five years in prison for each count. Her sentence will run concurrently.

In November, a jury found Taylor guilty of illegally filling out forms and ballots for other members of the Vietnamese community to help her husband, Jeremy, in elections for Congress and county supervisor in 2020.

After a couple years and a quarter million dollars, he came up with 6 people. One was found guilty, one was found not guilty by a jury, and four cases were dismissed.

He could have saved a lot of time and money and just gone directly to the GOP to catch the perps.
