Throwing Your Hat Into The Ring (Thomas Pendergast)

matt lynch

NYC had Tammany Hall, Boston had Kennedy's, Chicago had Coughlin/Kenna/Daly and Kansas City had Thomas Pendergast. The son of Irish immigrants, like the other leaders he cultivated his politics as a saloon keeper. He was a power broker that built arguably the strongest Democratic machine in the country. From two-bit thieves to wealthy bankers, they were all controlled by Tom. K.C. was referred to as the crime capital of the U.S. The Pendergast machines lasting legacy is they were very influential getting one of their own Herbert Hoover elected President.
