On Sunday, August 4, at 10:00am, Glen Whorton of the Nevada State Prison Preservation Society, returns to Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park with this year’s presentation – “The Great State Embezzlement”.
In perhaps the largest and best-known political and financial scandal in Nevada history—State Treasurer Ed Malley and State Controller George Cole embezzled $516,322.16 from the state treasury in the 1920s. With the assistance of a cashier of the Carson Valley Bank, the two began to divert state funds for their own benefit in 1919.
