McCain's wife sells Sudan-related investments - Yahoo! News

McCain's wife sells Sudan-related investments - Yahoo! News: "Cindy McCain, whose husband has been a critic of the violence in Sudan, sold off more than $2 million in mutual funds whose holdings include companies that do business in the African nation.

Last year, in a speech on energy policy to the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, McCain cited China's investments in Sudan as an example of regimes that survive off free-flowing petro dollars.

Edwards sold stock he and his wife owned in Schlumberger for between $40,000 and $100,000. He also invested $50,000 to $100,000 in Evergreen Equity Income Fund, another fund identified by the divestment task force as having stock in Sudan-related companies.

"Considering Democrat candidates, including Barack Obama, had the very same type of holdings, it is the height of hypocrisy to attack Senator McCain and his family," said Republican National Committee spokesman Danny Diaz"
