Justice Thomas Amends Disclosure Forms

 

WASHINGTON - Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has released corrected financial disclosure forms after public interest group Common Cause on Friday revealed that he had repeatedly failed to disclose his wife’s income on his annual financial disclosure forms.

In a document stamped "self-initiated amendment," Thomas wrote that the omissions were made as a result of a "misunderstanding of the filing instructions," an excuse Common Cause finds difficult to believe.  

"Justice Thomas sits on the highest court of the land, is called upon daily to understand and interpret the most complicated legal issues of our day and makes decisions that affect millions," said Common Cause President Bob Edgar. "It is hard to see how he could have misunderstood the simple directions of a federal disclosure form. We find his excuse implausible."

We also continue to be puzzled by omission of Liberty Central at Virginia Thomas’s most recent employer.
