    Default Rita Crundwell pleads guilty

    Crundwell pled guilty in federal court. Says she could get 20 years and could be fined double what she stole. Now where would she get $100M?

    Her attorney pointed out that her guilty plea saved the state a lot of money....How big of her.

    I still can't figure out how such a small town had that much money to take, and it not be noticed...?
    Or how she had the time to work and still compete, or frankly purchase, at the rate she did?!?

    Over twenty years, it's definitely an easy game and she did it in small amounts every month so it adds up over time.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!
