Clipping from the Pendergast-controlled newspaper the Missouri Democrat on December 7, 1934. The article provides the newspaper's opinion on a letter sent from Tom Pendergast to James A. Farley in which Pendergast asks for clemency for John Lazia. The newspaper shows its bias explaining that Pendergast admits to writing the letter because he is "always willing to assist his friends."
