    Kim Taylor officially reports to federal prison

    By Wesley Thoene,


    SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — The wife of a Woodbury County supervisor convicted of more than 50 counts of voter fraud has reported to prison.

    Kim Taylor, 50, has reported to the Federal Corrections Institution in Waseca, Minnesota . According to a federal court filing from Taylor’s new lawyer , Taylor was to voluntarily report to federal prison on Thursday. The filing itself was asking for an extension to file a brief for Taylor’s appeal of her sentencing. The deadline for the brief is currently June 3.

    Taylor, was sentenced on April 1 to a total of eight months of incarceration. Four of those months would be in federal prison and the other four of home incarceration. She will also have to serve two years supervised release beginning at the time of her home confinement. She must also pay a special assessment of $100 per charge for a total of $5,200.

    A jury found Taylor guilty in November 2023 of 26 charges of false information in registering and voting, three charges of fraudulent registration, and the remaining 23 charges of fraudulent voting.

    After being found guilty, Taylor filed for an acquittal on Dec. 1, 2023, claiming there was insufficient evidence supporting her conviction. On Jan. 18, a judge denied the request for an acquittal, rejecting her four arguments.

    Taylor is currently appealing her sentencing, submitting the filing on April 9 . The appeal came a week after her then defense attorney asked to withdraw as her counsel, stating she is asking for new counsel to be appointed “on appeal and in furtherance and support of her motion.”

    Kim Taylor is the wife of Woodbury County Supervisor Jeremy Taylor. She was first arrested on the counts of voter fraud in January 2023 , when the U.S. Department of Justice said she was involved in a scheme to “generate votes.” The DOJ said she did so in the June 2020 primary election while her husband 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 .
