- "Thank you very much for your contribution to the Board’s swimming pool, and we need your help on Sam Wallace’s candidacy for judgeship."
"We always can use a good judge…"
- ―Frank and Michael Corleone[src]
Sam Wallace was an associate of the Corleone crime family that they helped support during his campaign for judgeship in 1979 at the request of Frank, a member of the Board. Due to the assistance the family gave him, he often acted with leniency when convicting Corleones.
