Common Cause: Clarence Thomas Didn't Report Wife's Income For Several Years

I've looked into this before, and found there was a decision by the court several years ago in which they said they're weren't bound by the same ethics rules as other federal judges. (As I recall, the statement was along the lines of "We're Supreme Court justices, you should assume we wouldn't do anything unethical.") I don't know about you, but I'm immensely reassured:

WASHINGTONSupreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas failed over the course of at least five years to report his wife's income from a conservative think-tank on his financial disclosures, according to the watchdog group Common Cause.

Between 2003 and 2007, Virginia Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, was paid $686,589 by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, according to a Common Cause review of IRS records. Thomas failed to note the income in his financial disclosure forms for those years, choosing instead to check a box titled "none" where "spousal non-investment income" would normally be disclosed.

In his 2009 disclosure, Justice Thomas also reported spousal income as "none." Common Cause contends that Liberty Central paid Thomas an unknown salary during that year.
