Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas broke federal law by failing to report $700,000 that his lobbyist wife was paid by a conservative think tank. He says he didn't understand that the law's reference to "outside income" meant "outside income." Paul Campos, a University of Colorado law professor, writes: "Bill Clinton was impeached — and subsequently disbarred — for defending his false statements about his affair with Monica Lewinsky with an excuse that wasn't as incredible as the one Thomas is now employing."
