Thomas Joseph Pendergast (July 22, 1872 – January 26, 1945), also known as T. J. Pendergast, was an American political boss who controlled Kansas City and Jackson County, Missouri, from 1925 to 1939. Pendergast only briefly held elected office, as an alderman, but his capacity as chairman of the Jackson County Democratic Party allowed him to use his large network of family and friends to help the election of politicians, in some cases by voter fraud, and to hand out government contracts and patronage jobs. He became wealthy in the process, but his addiction to gambling, especially horse racing, later led to a large accumulation of personal debts.

Trumans karriär. Den så kallade Pendergastmaskinen grundades av Toms äldre bror James. När James avled 1911 tog Tom över organisationen och blev en av de mest framgångsrika bossarna i USA:s historia. Tom hade även en yngre bror som hette Michael. Tom Pendergast stödde Truman i senatorsvalet 1934 då Truman blev invald i senaten. Truman fick därför öknamnet "the Senator from Pendergast".
