What would you buy?
That’s how much Rita Crundwell embezzled from the town of Dixon, Illinois over the 23 years she worked as the town’s comptroller. By day she was a civil servant. On her own time, she used that money to build a fantasy lifestyle replete with champion quarter horses, custom made saddles and lavish homes.
All the Queen’s Horses — now available on Vudu — traces Rita’s deception and how her fraud was eventually discovered. The scary part? If she’d slowed down her spending or quite a bit earlier, she might never have been caught.
Of course, the dead giveaway was that her co-workers thought her fancy horses were supporting her lifestyle. We, of course, know better. How do you make a million bucks as a horse breeder? Start with two million.
