Thought on Rita Crundwell scandal

Hopefully, this will not open a can of worms. I must say I was quite shocked on this whole embezzlement fiasco. Considering the massive dollar amount of money stolen, I find it VERY odd how little this whole thing is even mentioned in public forums such as yahoo and facebook. Any ideas why?

I would like to see others inputs on this whole subject matter. I.e. Bond,titles won with horses paid for with stolen money, impact on town of Dixon, etc.

I think the interest is not so much what she did with the money but more how no one is watching the Government & what it does with our money. This is true at all levels.

There is plenty of discussion about it on the Pleasure Horse forum.

There were plenty of discussions about it on all the horse boards when the scandal broke. Until we hear more, why keep dredging up old information and spewing wild speculation?

I'm very interested to see how this all plays out, but for now we don't have any new information. Just because we're not constantly frothing at the mouth over it, doesn't mean it's been forgotten.

Here you go, new information.

That's not really new information, so much as rehashing what we already know.

The only really new information was her pleading 'not guilty' to the charges, which was completely expected and hardly a surprise. Nobody actually expected her to say, "Oh darn, you caught me! Of COURSE I stole the money!" did they?

Oh come on, take the joke.

What joke?

Corporal, I'm not sure how you missed this one. It was very big news all over the horse boards several weeks ago. Sewer rat is exactly right!
