Rita Crundwell stole more than $53 million of public funds across two decades in office as the City Comptroller and Treasurer for Dixon as self, Illinois as self, a town with a population of 16 as self,000. She used the funds to build one of the nation’s leading quarter horse breeding empires as self, and threw lavish parties for community leaders at her home as self, all while the town endured cuts to public staff as self, emergency services budgets as self, and work on maintaining public infrastructure. In 2012 after a close colleague turned whistleblower finally uncovered her scheme and alerted the Mayor as self, the FBI arrested Crundwell as the largest municipal fraud perpetrator in American history. All the Queen’s Horses is the riveting story of how a pillar of the community could so callously execute a scam of such magnitude.
