(CNN) - Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has released newly corrected financial disclosure forms showing his wife's past employment, blaming a misunderstanding for years of omissions of Virginia "Ginni" Thomas' salary at a conservative think tank and other jobs.

Thomas was required to report the information on the annual disclosure forms all federal judges must file. The forms did not disclose how much money Mrs. Thomas was paid.

The updated records go back 13 years and confirm Mrs. Thomas has worked for the Heritage Foundation, the Republican leadership in the House and Hillsdale College in Michigan.

    My god he is a supreme court judge and cannot understand the rules of disclosure relative to his job!?
    Is he even qualified as a lawyer who are supposed to abide by the Law. maybe the bar association needs to do something here.
    Hey I am a mere qualified bean counter but if I evade taxes by mistake or not I get thrown out.
