Ex-TSA nominee Harding got Army deal after claiming sleep apnea as disability
By Ed O'Keefe
By The Post's Robert O'Harrow:
The decorated general who withrew his nomination to lead the Transportation Security Administration had received a consulting contract worth almost $100 million from the Army after certifying he was a "service disabled veteran," according to documents and interviews with government officials.
The disability he claimed was sleep apnea, a sometimes chronic breathing disorder that disrupts sleep.
Army Maj. Gen. Robert A. Harding, who became a federal contractor in 2001 after serving at the highest levels of military intelligence, withdrew his name late Friday at the end of a week in which he had been repeatedly questioned about his contracting activities. His withdrawal also came after The Washington Post raised questions with the White House on Friday about his disabilities status.
