BGA Investigation: O’Hare’s History Of Insider Favors, Corruption and Waste

It’s the country’s third-busiest airport. Five decades worth of costly delays, machine politics and billions of dollars have yielded little improvement as O’Hare International Airport continues to be riddled with delays and congestion.
