How do you steal $53 Million in a town of 15,000?
The City Comptroller for my birthplace, Dixon, IL, is accused of embezzling $53 million dollars over the last few years, and she apparently just got caught! This has been amazing to watch; it is a town of 15,000 people, and I never thought there was ever THAT much money in Dixon at any one time in my life. Here is a report from WQAD of Moline, which used to be a sister station to WREG: I hate that this happened to Dixon, but to those of you who think Memphis has problems, realize that a small town like Dixon can have just as big a problem with crooks, because everyone assumes that something like this could NEVER happen here!
