ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) A newspaper is reporting that a Maryland senator repeatedly provided false or incomplete information on financial disclosure forms.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Sen. David Harrington, D-Prince George's, failed to disclose an income source that was required to be reported.

In the 2008 and 2009 reporting periods, Harrington listed one of his houses in Bladensburg as his "home residence," although he has been renting it out for years. Harrington told the newspaper that he would be "submitting an amendment" to correct the omission.

The newspaper also reported that the senator repeatedly gave erroneous or incomplete statements about the nature of his debts relating to some of his properties. Harrington told the newspaper in an email that he entered information about his mortgages to the best of his ability.
