Former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. Fired For Misconduct By Morgan Stanley

Photo Harold Ford Jr., a former congressman, was sacked from his position as a managing director at the financial services firm Morgan Stanley for what the company described as behavior "inconsistent with our values".

Mr. Ford appears regularly on the MSNBC show "Morning Joe".

Ford responded to the allegations in a tweet.

According to the complaint, Ford engaged in sexual misconduct toward one women, including once grabbing her in the lobby of a building and routinely harassing her afterward.

A woman who dealt with Ford in a professional capacity, but who isn't an employee of the bank, was interviewed by Morgan Stanley's human resources department in the probe, according to the Huffington Post. The incident took place several years ago and there are emails that confirm the interaction, HuffPost reported. False claims like this undermine the real silence breakers.

The report includes details of an email the woman sent to the former Tennessee politician, asking him to cease contact because of the harassment. She asked him not to contact her anymore, citing his inappropriate conduct the evening where he forcibly grabbed and harassed her.

"I'm just learning right now", he said before hanging up on a reporter. Having drinks and dinner for work is part of my job, and all of my outreach to the news reporter making these false allegations was professional and at the direction of my firm for business purposes. He comes from a prominent political family, as his father, Harold Ford Sr., served 22 years in the House of Representatives.

Ford made an unsuccessful bid for a Senate seat in 2006 but was defeated by Republican Sen.

Ford left Congress in 2007 and has been a managing director at Morgan Stanley since 2011.
