Martin Tolchin talked about the book he co-wrote with his wife, Pinstripe Patronage: Political Favoritism from the Clubhouse to the White House and Beyond. The book looks at the evolution of political patronage from the party boss days of New York’s Tammany Hall and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley’s machine to the current “pinstripe patronage,” which delivers outsourced services and no-bid contracts as rewards to campaign contributors.

He was interviewed at the 33rd Annual National Press Club Book Fair and Authors' Night, a fundraiser for the Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library and The SEED Foundation held Tuesday, November 9, 2010 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. close
