Washington, DC – Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas flouted federal law by deliberately withholding information about his wife’s sources of income from a disclosure form required of all judges, Common Cause said today. The statement comes on the heels of a new request made Thursday by 20 House Democrats requesting a federal investigation into whether Thomas broke federal disclosure laws.
