What's the best way to handle a possible gender discrimination issue with my boss regarding salaries?

I recently found out that a male co-worker makes more than I do. Another co-worker found a document that was left on a fax machine and listed certain employee's salaries and told some people what she found. I suppose under some circumstances, this would not be a problem, however I am more senior than him. I am a Senior Account Executive and he is currently an Account Executive. I have more years in the industry, much stronger and broader skill sets, and more responsibilities. I have heard other co-workers complain about his lack of experience and his inability to efficiently manage his accounts. On one occasion, some co-workers requested that I be brought in to help manage one of his accounts because things were so disorganized. Despite all of this, I still think my boss is a fair person, and that this situation can be salvaged, but I'm not sure what the best way to handle this is. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I should approach this topic with him?
