Sam De Stefano

Sam De Stefano was often playful with the press and police whenever he was arrested or appeared in court. Here, he shows off a scar after his arrest for illegal voting in April 1964. Though cavalier and colorful in public, mob observers dubbed him the "Marquis de Sade of the syndicate" for the violence he brought to his work. Tribune archive photo
