Morgan Stanley Fires Former Dem Rep. Harold Ford Jr

Ford Fired By Morgan Stanley In Harassment Investigation

Executive producers Mark Halperin John Heilmann and Mark Mc Kinnon of the Showtime program

The incident took place several years ago and there are emails that confirm the interaction, HuffPost reported. 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.

But it's also even worse than that because we now know that the woman in question was a reporter, and we know it because Ford Jr. said so in a statement of innocence tweeted out by HuffPo's Yashar Ali.

"I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life", he said, in a statement released by his spokesman, Davidson Goldin.

The firing comes as companies, lawmakers, and politicians grapple with a string of allegations against prominent men. Ford continued to contact her after the encounter until she wrote an email asking him to cease contact. He identified the alleged victim as a news reporter and further expounded on the allegations. 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.

False claims like this undermine real silence breakers.

Ford was first elected to congress at 26 years old, where he represented Tennessee's 9th district from 1996 to 2007.

Ford was appointed to become a managing director of Morgan Stanley in 2011.

Morgan Stanley declined to say specifically what prompted the firing.

Ford is also a paid political analyst for MSNBC and is a frequent contributor on "Morning Joe". A spokesperson for MSNBC did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.
