All the Queen’s Horses
Get your popcorn and drinks ready. Join us for a viewing of ‘All the Queen’s Horses’. Filmmaker Kelly Richmond Pope investigates how a city comptroller was able to steal $37,000 a day for two decades.
HOW COULD ONE WOMAN STEAL $53 MILLION WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING?
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.
ALL THE QUEEN’S HORSES investigates her crime, her lavish lifestyle and the small town she left in her wake.
We will be joined by a panel of guest speakers to talk about the control failures that led to the most significant government fraud in history. Our guest panel will also be discussing current global and local fraud trends.
