Inquiry to target Sen. Burris' son

February 27, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Gov. Pat Quinn is looking into how the son of embattled U.S. Sen. Roland Burris got a state job as a housing agency lawyer under ousted Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich's administration, just weeks after he landed in tax and foreclosure trouble.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported in Thursday editions that the September hiring of Roland Burris II as senior counsel for the Illinois Housing Development Authority came six weeks after the Internal Revenue Service slapped him with a $34,163 tax lien and three weeks after a mortgage company filed a foreclosure lawsuit on his Chicago home.
