Demmer introduces bills to prevent another swindle
Legislation calls for more oversight, harsher penalties
DIXON – State Rep. Tom Demmer filed anti-corruption legislation Wednesday that he said will add more accountability to government offices and increase penalties for perpetrators.
The Dixon Republican filed the legislation a day before the city’s former comptroller, Rita Crundwell, is to be sentenced in federal court for stealing nearly $54 million from the city.
Crundwell forged state invoices and falsely claimed the state was late in payments to justify why the city was in bad shape financially.
