Stealing $53 million across two decades while in office as the City Comptroller of Dixon, a town in the heart of Illinois with a population of just 16,000, Rita Crundwell used the funds to build one of the nation’s leading quarter horse breeding empires, and threw lavish parties, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and neglect of public infrastructure. In 2012, she was finally arrested as the largest municipal fraud perpetrator in American history. This new documentary is the riveting story of how a pillar of the community could so callously execute a scam of such magnitude. NR / 70 min.
