All she wanted wasa a source of stable funding:
A federal judge in Rockford ruled Friday that the U.S. Marshals Service can move forward with selling as many as 400 quarter horses belonging to the former Dixon comptroller accused of stealing tens of millions of dollar from the small town’s coffers.
Marshals have been overseeing the care of the horses since shortly after Rita Crundwell, 59, was arrested in April on charges she pilfered more than $53 million over nearly 22 years as the town official with almost sole control over finances. Prosecutors have said she used the money to fund her championship horse breeding business as well as a lavish lifestyle.
Maybe her daddy should have given her that pony back when she was six . . . .
