Soros sells shares in TSA contractor making naked scanners

Two days ago, I reported that George Soros owned 11,300 shares in the OSI Systems, Inc. — the company making the scanners for the TSA that produce near-naked images of people and have been the source of much controversy.

Well, now it appears Soros has sold off his small stake in the company. It would be nice if he did this as a response to public pressure, but it seems equally likely that as an investor he simply realized the political tide was turning against the company and the stock may drop as a result.
