“I asked my license guy, cause I was going to call about something,” the voice on the post can be heard saying. “He told me it’s totally confidential. You ask them to remain anonymous.”

Back in March details emerged relating to an alleged anonymous complaint filed with the Texas Bingo Commission against Hamburger Mary’s. The restaurant, a national LGBT franchise built around Drag Queens and ‘Charity Bingo.’ The complaint was based on Hamburger Mary’s operating an unlicensed charity bingo night.

“I have a meeting at the lottery tomorrow. You know… Bayou City is a bar…, Hamburger Mary’s is a franchise. Obviously two different businesses. That would mean two different licenses…” Another voice appears in the audio twice throughout. It appears to be another male voice.

Texas Charity Bingo, a division of the Texas Lottery Commission, ultimately found Hamburger Mary’s in violation of Texas bingo laws.

The Commission demanded the weekly charity event to cease. The end of the event meant local LGBT non-profits in Montrose would not benefit.

“And when your dumb enough to run ads about it,” the voice on the recording says. “Wait, wait and see what TABC does because um I’m not going to let it end.” There is no indication on the post as to what the man’s voice is speaking of.

“Oh yeah, when we went to the meetings with Charles Armstrong about the Pride, he was the only one that talked. I got this. I got this connection. He’s a pansy! He’s a big show off, he was at all those meetings. Me Me Me Me Me, I I I I I I, I’ve been with Disney, I owned Richs.”

“He did not own Richs, they threw him out of Richs.” As the recording ends the male voice appears to be cut off. “I think you should. I’m gonna be there tomorrow. I will go to see what’s going on.”

Today, Palchick ‘vented’ to Facebook regarding the recording. Claiming tape was ‘done behind his back,’ and ‘re-done to make him look bad.’ Palchick expresses ‘more important’ things in the community need to be done, like raising money for non-profits.’
