June 25, 2009 --Senator Roland Burris reportedly failed to disclose to the Senate that he has options to buy 8,000 shares of stock in a real estate investment company. A Burris spokesman told the Tribune that he plans to amend his financial statement to reflect the unexercised options in Oak Brook-based Inland Real Estate Corporation.
Burris was on Inland's board from 1996 until January. Last year, he received $63,000 in director fees and dividends.
Members of the U.S. Senate are required to file annual financial disclosures.
