Harold Ford Jr. Latest Figure Cited for Sexual Harassment

Harold Ford Jr. Latest Figure Cited for Sexual Harassment

According to the complaint, Ford engaged in sexual misconduct toward one women, including once grabbing her in the lobby of a building and routinely harassing her afterward.

Former Tennessee Congressman Harold Ford, Jr. has been fired by Morgan Stanley amid allegations of misconduct, according to a report from the Huffington Post.

Afterwards, she says Ford repeatedly asked her out for drinks - until she told her to leave him alone, citing his scary alleged assault.

The announcement of Ford's termination from Morgan Stanley said, "He has been terminated for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies", The Huffington Post website published accounts of its interviews with the woman whose accusations against Ford, who is married and has two children, resulted in his current predicament. Ford only desisted after the woman emailed him explicitly warning him to knock it off, it states. 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.




With the firing, Mr. Ford became the latest prominent man to lose his job amid heightened scrutiny of workplace behavior.

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

Ford succeeded his father - Harold Ford Sr. - as the congressman for the heavily-Democratic Ninth Congressional District in 1996. He worked for Merrill Lynch and started at Morgan Stanley in 2011 as a managing partner. Ford lost that hotly contested 2006 race by fewer than three points to current Republican Sen. During that campaign, a negative political ad aimed at Ford Jr. caused a firestorm when it mentioned his attendance at a 2005 Superbowl party hosted by Playboy.
