As city comptroller of Dixon, IL, Rita Crundwell stole $53 million of public funds across 20 years -- making her the perpetrator of the largest case of municipal fraud in American history. She used the funds to build one of the nation's leading quarter horse breeding empires, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and neglect of public infrastructure. This is the story of her crime, her lavish lifestyle, and the small town she left depleted.
