Federal investigators and the city inspector general's office are looking into city aviation deals relative to O'Hare Airport construction contracts and the brother of a Chicago alderman. 

Alderman Patrick Levar's brother, who once oversaw construction contracts at O'Hare Airport for Mayor Daley, is a focus of the investigation, and campaign contributions from construction companies to the alderman's coffers are a key factor.
