House Democrats Call for Investigation of Justice Thomas - nofurylike - 10-08-2011 02:37 AM

On Thursday, 20 House Democrats, led by Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY), called for an ethics investigation of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for allegedly failing to report that his wife was paid $700,000 for her work at the Heritage Foundation between 2003 and 2007.
... [investigate] Justice Tomas's failure to disclose his wife's income for his entire tenure on the federal bench and indications that he may have failed to file additional disclosures regarding his travels require the Judicial Conference to refer this matter to the Department of Justice."
