(The Center Square) - An Iowa woman could spend years in prison following her conviction on 52 counts of voter fraud.

Kim Phuong Taylor, 49, of Sioux City, was convicted by a jury of 26 counts of providing false information in registering and voting, three counts of fraudulent registration, and 23 counts of fraudulent voting, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

Taylor's husband, Jeremy, ran as a Republican for Congress in Iowa's 4th district. He came in third behind Randy Feenstra, who would go on to win the race, and incumbent Steve King, according to Ballotpedia.

Jeremy Taylor was elected to the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors during the 2020 general election, a position he still holds.

Kim Taylor helped others submit fraudulent voting registrations, absentee ballots and absentee ballot applications, according to the DOJ.

"Taylor completed and signed voter forms without voters’ permission and told others that they could sign on behalf of relatives who were not present," the DOJ said in a news release.

She was arrested in January.

Each of the 52 counts carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Kim Taylor will be sentenced at a later date, the DOJ said.

Matthew Ung, chairman of the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors, said at a board meeting on Tuesday that Jeremy Taylor should resign, according to KCAU.

He told the television station Kim Taylor was "set up to take the fall."

"There was never a time I didn’t know what my wife was doing to help my campaign,” Ung told reporters at the meeting.
