Former general and CIA director David Petraeus lowers his CUNY salary to $1
Former CIA director David Petraeus' $200,000 salary to teach a single seminar at CUNY has all but evaporated, as he will now collect only a single dollar, The New York Times reported Monday.
Petraeus, who resigned last year after news broke of an extra-marital affair, was set to teach a course at CUNY's Macaulay Honors College for $200,000.
After the deal was reported on Gawker.com, it was bumped down to $150,000, but Petraeus' attorney told the Times that the 60-year-old former general will make only $1.
"The general never was taking on this teaching assignment for the money," Petraeus' attorney, Robert Barnett, told the Times. CUNY didn't respond to a request for comment.
