The omission of Associate Justice Clarence Thomas of the U.S. Supreme Court to disclose his wife's salary in files more than ten years ago
has come to light again as she prepares to speak with a committee of the House of Representatives on January 6.
Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, a lawyer and conservative activist, received $686,589 from the Heritage Foundation between 2003 and 2007,
although Justice Thomas failed to disclose this income in financial statements for those years.
In a section of his disclosure form that called for information regarding "spousal noninvestment income," Thomas had marked a box that said "none," according to a 2011 story by The Los Angeles Times.
As Thomas is scheduled to appear this week before the House of Representatives Select Committee looking into the events of January 6, 2021, the matter has resurfaced on social media.
