Ford Fired By Morgan Stanley In Harassment Investigation
The incident took place several years ago and there are emails that confirm the interaction, HuffPostreported. One woman heard from Ford's accuser the night of the incident and described her as "distraught, shocked, and frightened", and said that she was concerned about any career ramifications should she report the incident.
The investment bank Morgan Stanley said Thursday that it had severed its ties with former Rep. Harold Ford Jr., a managing director at the bank, citing an accusation of misconduct.
"I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life", he said, in a statement released by his spokesman, Davidson Goldin.

His father, Harold Ford Sr., held a congressional seat for 12 terms before retiring, leaving his son to run for the seat, a race which he won handily.
He added: "I support and have tremendous respect for the fearless women now speaking out in this important national dialogue". 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.
