People who don't understand how the financial end of things work keep asking how she got away with it.
Well, she was the ONLY one doing the books, had been working there upwards of 30 years, and it's a small city so the Town Council and Mayor were probably continually elected year after year.
Contrary to popular belief, it's not an outside auditing firm's job to figure out embezzlement. As long as the financial and bank statements, as well as vendor records matched, the auditors wouldn't have had a clue what she was doing. That's why the whistle blower was the woman subbing for her while she was out on extended leave.
