Supreme Court: Justice Clarence Thomas reportedly failed to report wife's income - latimes.com Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas failed to report his wife's income from a conservative think tank on financial disclosure forms for at least five years, the watchdog group Common Cause said Friday. Between 2003 and 2007, Virginia Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, earned $686,589 from the Heritage Foundation, according to a Common Cause review of the foundation's IRS records. Thomas failed to note the income in his Supreme Court financial disclosure forms for those years, instead checking a box labeled "none" where "spousal noninvestment income" would be disclosed. I guess it wasnt taxes but disclosure information. In other words he hid her activities from the American people so he would not have to recuse himself from cases. Lying to the American people just warms the cockles of your heart dont it.
