I believe the answer is:


'petitions' is the definition.
(to petition someone is to plead with them)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for pleads that I've seen before include "Appeals or requests earnestly" , "Makes appeal or entreaty" , "Implores" , "Begs" .)

I've seen this clue in The New York Times.
