Demonstrating to Wall Street CEOs how to act when times are tough, the Democrat announced yesterday he’s cutting his own salary by five percent and the executive budget by 1.4 million dollars.

Cuts include “the grocery list for the Executive Mansion by one-fourth; less dry cleaning for drapes in the mansion; and fewer official trips by Kaine and first lady Anne Holton.” (More Details at WAVY-TV.com)
