Speaking to reporters Tuesday aboard Air Force Once en route to New Hampshire, Burton fielded a question about CIA agents doing side work for corporations.

Burton joked that due to President Barack Obama's proposed government spending freeze, "I've actually been moonlighting as a bartender at Cap Lounge."
