Morgan Stanley fires Harold Ford Jr. for misconduct

Harold Ford Jr. in Memphis at an NAACP event earlier this year- JB Exclusive: Former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. Fired For Misconduct By Morgan Stanley
Kenny Thornton | 07 Декабря, 2017, 23:41

Ford responded to the allegations hours after the report. "I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life", Ford wrote. The incident took place several years ago when Ford and the woman were supposed to be meeting for professional reasons. I will now be bringing legal action against [the woman] who has made these false claims about me as well as Morgan Stanley for improper termination, ' he said.

The firing comes as companies, lawmakers, and politicians grapple with a string of allegations against prominent men.

A spokesman for the financial firm said this week that he was sacked for 'conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies'. She sought the help of a security guard to escape the situation.

The Huffington Post did not identify the accuser but said that it had reviewed emails between her and Ford that confirmed the incident.

She also contacted two women the night of the incident and confided in them about what happened, according to the story.

In a statement, Ford disputed the allegations and said he would sue the woman, who he revealed was a reporter.

Ford's attorney John Singer said the firing "was a matter of convenience during a hyper-sensitive time and not based on real facts".

At least one woman, who is not a Morgan Stanley employee but interacted with Ford in a professional capacity, was interviewed by Morgan Stanley's HR department as part of the investigation. "He will manage relationships with corporate directors, senior executives and institutional investors, as well as private clients".

He ran unsuccessfully in 2007 for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Sen.

Ford Jr. joined congress at the age of 26 in 1997, taking over his father's seat as the Democratic Representative of Tennessee's 9th District. He worked for Fox News briefly and then became a contributor at MSNBC where he has been appearing on Morning Joe and other programs for a decade.
