Let's start this item over -- clean and shorten this sucker up. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission finally sent over the 32-page report detailing the events of the raid on the Rainbow Lounge raid in Fort Worth; it's below, as you can see. But Tameka Harris, the agency's legal secretary, also informs us that there are 819 supplementary pages, available to us at the cost of $161.40; we're looking under the couch now for loose change, and will post those as soon as the check clears (fingers crossed).
As noted earlier, the agency's internal investigators "found evidence to support the allegations that ... three TABC employees violated various agency policies." Now, then, your must-read in an easy-to-read format.TABC Report on Rainbow Lounge Raid
