Former Rep. Harold Ford Jr. fired for sexual misconduct


Former Tennessee Congressman Harold Ford Jr. was sacked by Morgan Stanley following the company's investigation into alleged misconduct, according to a report Thursday.

Harold Ford Jr. stands on stage at the Stonewall Democratic Club February 24, 2010 in New York City.

Yashar Ali reported for HuffPost that a woman who worked with Ford said she was interviewed by Morgan Stanley's HR department for a probe on misconduct.

Ford, formerly of Memphis, was sacked for "conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies", according to a spokeswoman with the financial services firm, as quoted by HuffPost.

Afterwards, she says Ford repeatedly asked her out for drinks - until she told her to leave him alone, citing his scary alleged assault. Ford lost that hotly contested 2006 race by fewer than three points to current Republican Sen. "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". Ford apologized and agreed not to email the woman anymore.

Ford comes from a prominent political family in Tennessee.

Ford is also a paid political analyst for MSNBC and is a frequent contributor on "Morning Joe".

Before the advent of Barack Obama on the national scene, Ford, who was a congressman from 1997 to 2007 in the seat held previous by his namesake father, was considered by some to have a chance to become the first African-American presidential candidate.

But just for shits and giggles, what is Ford Jr. accused of doing?

Ford told the Huffington Post he intends to bring "legal action against the reporter who has made these false claims about me as well as Morgan Stanley for improper termination".
