While ruling on cases near and dear to the hearts of his wife’s clients, for 13 years Justice Clarence Thomas failed to report spousal income from conservative groups such as the Heritage Foundation because, he claims, he misunderstood the disclosure forms.
Wait, before you go…
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has amended 13 years’ worth of disclosure reports to include details of wife Virginia Thomas’s sources of income, documents released on Monday show.
The documents indicate that Thomas’s wife, who goes by Ginni, had worked for Hillsdale College in Michigan, the Heritage Foundation and the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives, among other entities.
