Someone in a town with a population of 16,000 was able to embezzle $53 million from the local government? Insanity. #EthicsTownHall

All The Queen’s Horses chronicles the story of Rita Crundwell, former city controller of Dixon, Illinois whose embezzlement of $53 million - the largest municipal fraud in U.S. History - went undetected for more than 20 years. Crundwell used the funds to support a lavish lifestyle which included a championship horse-breeding business. The NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to champion the public trust by advancing ethical leadership in business, institutions and organizations. All The Queen's Horses is due for completion in 2016. Support the film and find out more. Email ATQH@kartemquin.com to get in touch.
