Petraeus Cuts College Teaching Salary to $1

Was originally going to get $200,000 a year


Former CIA director and four-star general David Petraeus has cut his salary for a City University of New York teaching gig to $1 a year down from the $200,000 he was originally set to receive for the three-hour-a-week course,The New York Times reported.

The salary cut follows a wave of criticism of both Petraeus and the university following the initial revelation of Petraeus' salary in the news website Gawker.

Petraeus, who resigned last November from the CIA following the revelations of an FBI investigation that revealed he was having an affair with his biographer, had planned on teaching a seminar called "Are We on the Threshold of the North American Decade."
