Republican Crime Blotter: Voter Fraud Edition


It's always delicious when a Republican is caught engaging in the voter fraud that they constantly accuse Dems of. Case in point:

"The wife of an Iowa Republican who ran for Congress in 2020 was arrested Thursday and accused of casting 23 fraudulent votes on behalf of her husband.

In an 11-page indictment, prosecutors allege that Kim Phuong Taylor 'visited numerous households within the Vietnamese community in Woodbury County,' where she collected absentee ballots for people who were not present at the time. Taylor, who was born in Vietnam, then filled out and cast those ballots herself, the indictment alleges, '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.'

Taylor is also accused of signing voter registration forms on behalf of residents who were not present. In all, prosecutors allege, she engaged in 26 counts of providing false information and voting, three counts of fraudulent registration, and 23 counts of fraudulent voting. Each charge carries a maximum 5-year prison sentence." (our emphasis)

Ms. Taylor went for broke on voter fraud and now faces a maximum of 260 years in the slammer if convicted on all 52 counts and the sentences run consecutively. Politician hubby Jeremy Taylor finished third in the primary, getting only 6,400 vote (less the 23 his wife cast), or roughly 25 votes for every potential year in prison. If he was the mastermind, a likely scenario, perhaps she'll roll over on him. Sad!
