Members of the media are seen inside the personal residence, one of the homes owned by former Dixon, Ill., comptroller Rita Crundwell, during a tour Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, provided by the U.S. Marshals Service for prospective property buyers and the media. Crundwell pleaded guilty last month to embezzling $53 milliion from the small city in Illinois to fund a lavish lifestyle that included a nationally known horse-breeding operation. The spoils of Crundwell's looting are on the auction block, being sold for pennies on the dollar by the U.S. Marshals Service. The main house was a tribute to everything western, with rustic wood furniture, mirrors with bull horns, cowhide rugs and even western-themed knick-knacks. (AP Photo/Sauk Valley Media, Alex T.
