Ford Fired By Morgan Stanley In Harassment Investigation
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".
In her account, the woman, who is not identified in the story, said she and Ford were meeting for business reasons when the incident took place. 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.
Former congressman Harold Ford Jr. has unequivocally denied allegations of misconduct which prompted him to be fired from Morgan Stanley on Thursday.
Ford responded to the allegations in a tweet. "I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life", Ford wrote.
The firing comes as companies, lawmakers, and politicians grapple with a string of allegations against prominent men. 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.
I support and have tremendous respect for the fearless women now speaking out in this important national dialogue.
False claims like this undermine real silence breakers. "This all demonstrates how this was a matter of convenience during a hyper-sensitive time and not based on real facts".

Mr. Ford served five terms in Congress as a Democrat representing a Tennessee district after first being elected in 1996.
At Morgan Stanley, he was tasked with 'managing relationships with corporate directors, senior executives and institutional investors, as well as private clients'. 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. An MSNBC spokesman declined to comment on Thursday for the record.
