Well. Makes me wonder how many other villages, towns, cities and counties are being ripped off. Not to mention what the Feds are doing with our constitutional rights. Wake up people. WAKE UP. This will not change until we the people force the real change needed on a local, state and federal level.

This is the taxpayer money being stolen. The actual producers of this country that actually have a job are being ripped off!!! Let's not even get into the welfare blood suckers off this society.

This witch had access to taxpayers money for 30 years. So far, they have only gone back to 2006 to discover 30 MILLION dollars missing Remember that the next time your government tries to tell you they need to raise taxes !! Next time ask them what benefits they have to justify an increase.

Timed to get more than p-sd off.

Maybe she will get the same terms as the thief who stole $105,000 from thje fire Dept. in Amboy. She was allowed to make payments for 30 yrs and missed the 3rd pmt. of $300 per mo.,but what the hell its only taxpayer money.The taxes can be raised a little and offset the loss.How did Dixon still operate for the last 6 yrs without the 30 million? This is an average of 5 million per year.Will they increase or decrease the budget by this amount?

How in the hell could you steal 30 million from a town with a budget of 8 million a year. Can't be done. She must have have a credit line somewhere with town funds. Do the math, it's impossible.

So, a guy in Harmon,Il. stole from the village. He and his family enjoyed all the comforts of life on this little towns money. He did prison time, moved away, some of the family disowned him. Amboy, Il. got hit at least 3 times by this kind of activity, 1)years ago employee caught embezzling from bank 2) employee caught embezzling from fire department (right?)3) the mayor caught stealing from a museum that is supported by donations, who knows what else he stole while mayor. Dixon has this fiasco. Just wait folks, it is going on in a town near you or the one you are living in.

$4500.00 bond for $30,000,000. Looks to me as if the feds don't have much of a case. Is that possible they failed to cross the t's and dot the i's. "Oh, no
say it ain't so"

she has been winning with aqha like crazy, makes you wonder if she paid off the judges with that money she took ? how could she always be top dog all the time at the shows??? i think there is alot more to this then meets the eye like crooked judges ?? i think this will only get worse before it gets better. iam sure it will shake the horse world and the aqha to its knees yet. to the point there will be no more aqha or aqha world or shows because i think she paid the judges off and may be aqha too.i think there is a lot more dirty pool being plyed here then her stealing just the money and buying what she did. this is going to get very dirty yet.and it will uncover dirty horse in the horse world too with aqha being right in the middle of it all

The city of Dixon should rehire her and give her a raise.If she took 5 million a year of the seven million budget and still ran the city,just think what she could do with the whole seven million.Ill bet you Dixonites could even get a new or additional Reagan statue and have Rita dedicate it.

The guy in Harmon was the township supervisor and took serial numbers off equipment at his job site and secured phony loans as if the township was buying it.The money ended up on the Mississippi Belle.A little over a hundred thousand.

if you think of what 30m could have done to improve your community and the quality of enjoyment like parks and better infrastructure, it only proves she is in fact evil.

Congrats Dixon public officials. Now you've all got some real egg on your faces. How on earth could you think that Crundwell could afford such a lavish lifestyle???
You should of woken up and smelled the rat a long time ago.
Was it because she was a lifelong Dixon resident the you chose not ask any questions?

The people of Dixon should demand their taxes be slashed for two reasons: 1) The town has proven it can run on half the income the last several years. 2) The town has proven it is careless, reckless, and inept in handling money. Wise up!

From a fellow exhibitor and competitor of Rita, let me tell you two things that I'm very sure of: 1) She's been at this LONG before 2006! 2) Jim McKillips has hands just as dirty as hers and I pray he doesn't go unpunished!

They Need to ALL be thrown OUT!! The Idiot mayor said the other night--"Just think how many more employees we could have hired and had on the payroll if we would of had that money." IT IS NOT the object of government just to see how big we can make government.!!! That town is dying. Nothing is being done to grow the Town--Industrial development, private enterprise etc. All they have is a prison and cops handing out DUI's and busting potheads every day. The census went down from 18000 to 15000 in 2010. Where the Hell has common sense gone???

That mayor can't wait to hire back employees? This is typical of what is wrong with the out of touch elected officials. Dixon did without those added employees, take your lickin and suck it up. Start giving money back to the people of Dixon !!! Now it is reported that Crundwell has stolen around $53 million. Time to get all of those bums outta there. And Crundwell deserves nothing less than the rest of her life in prison

True story. A close relative of mine moved to the sleepy town of Dixon back in 2007. I would make the trek (3 hours round trip) to see that this elderly relative was getting along ok. Every time I drove into that town I would say: "ugh what a dismal one horse town". Ha! It seems that it was more than a one horse town.

I cannot believe the tax paying residents there are not running the mayor out .
