Roland Burris failed to reveal ownership of stock options in Inland Real Estate Corporation

U.S. Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) failed to reveal in a Senate financial disclosure statement that he has options to buy 8,000 shares of stock in a real estate investment company where he was a board member, according to public records.

The disclosure statement, recently made public, indicated Burris and his wife held $900,000 to $1.8 million in assets, but failed to note their options to buy stock in Oak Brook-based Inland Real Estate Corp.

A published report says U.S. Sen. Roland Burris didn't disclose on a Senate financial disclosure statement that he has options to buy 8,000 shares of stock in a real estate investment company.

Burris spokesman Jim O'Connor told the Chicago Tribune Wednesday that the senator plans to amend his financial statement to reflect the unexercised options in Oak Brook-based Inland Real Estate Corp.
