Queens resident Ellen Lee has pleaded guilty to forging signatures and falsifying information on over 170 liquor license applications, and faces up to four years in prison. Lee was hired by immigrants who were looking to open bars and needed help with State Liquor Authority paperwork. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. told the Daily News, "False documents like the ones filed by the defendant lead directly to the establishment of bars in areas where they do not belong." It's unclear where exactly these bars were established, because according to some, bars don't belong anywhere in this city.
