Description

A three-month investigation by the Courier-Journal found that the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control has failed to protect consistently the public from bars, clubs and package stores that break the law. The ABC has been so lax and disorganized that some liquor law violators -- even those repeatedly sold to minors -- haven't been punished swiftly or severely. The ABC has failed to inspect some liquor license holders for years; as a result serious violations have gone unpunished. Enforcement has been hampered by friction within the ABC.
