Hoover also conspired to break the law by countenancing burglaries, break-ins, and mail intercepts of organizations and people with whose politics he disagreed. Although Clarence Kelley worked under Hoover, he is of a different breed. Kelley is more honest, open, tolerant, understanding and democratic. "To him has fallen the Herculean job of restructuring the morale, image and organization of the FBI.
