    The city comptroller for Dixon, Illinois was arrested by FBI agents for allegedly misappropriating more than $30 million in city money to fund her personal expenses.

    Rita Crundwell, 58, handled all finances for the city since the early 1980s.

    She is accused of defrauding more than $3.2 million in public funds from the city of Dixon since the fall of 2011.

    That is a lot of money.


    It's hard for me to think about 32 million dollars without thinking about how much good could be done with that kind of cash. Or, more importantly, how much that city could have done for it's citizens for that amount-more cops, more library books, better equipment, and so on.

    Don't This towns that have been ripped off for millions ever get audited by outside entities for bond ratings ?

    Our little burg gets audited annually or Bi-annually I can't remember which.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    It took about 25 years, and a mayor and governor who actually care about fiscal responsibility to start looking over Detroit's finances. Although, during the Archer years (93-01), things were pretty stable for the city financially speaking. Then came Kwame.
