$BABA $JD Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, who has been a staunch critic of China and companies there, yet again bought stock and options in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba last month, a new disclosure report reveals. Tuberville made three separate purchases of Alibaba shares valued at as much as $300,000 in total. The buys were made less than five months after the Republican’s spokeswoman said that in mid-2000 he had ordered his financial advisors to sell off a small stake in Alibaba stock after becoming aware it was in his portfolio. THIS MADE MY DAY. You have to admire the integrity of these wonderful upright US politicians!
