Harold Ford, Jr. responds to misconduct allegations, denies any wrongdoing

Executive producers Mark Halperin John Heilmann and Mark Mc Kinnon of the Showtime program Ford Fired By Morgan Stanley In Harassment Investigation
Sammy Stanley | 08 December, 2017, 01:31

A spokeswoman for Morgan Stanley confirmed to the Daily News that Ford was sacked for "conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies".

The firing comes as companies, lawmakers, and politicians grapple with a string of allegations against prominent men. The ad was denounced by the NAACP and eventually pulled, but Ford Jr. was asked by a reporter if the claim he had attended the Playboy party (with several thousand other people) was true.

One woman, who does not work for Morgan Stanley but interacted with Ford professionally, told HuffPo that she was interviewed as part of a human resources investigation into Ford's alleged misconduct.

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

"This simply did not happen. I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life". He identified the alleged victim as a news reporter and further expounded on the allegations. 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.

Lindsey Vonn: I'm representing the United States , but not Trump at Olympics
The 33-year-old skier added that if she were invited to the White House after the Olympics, she would turn down the invitation. I am not standing by any of the policies that they're enforcing and things that they're doing. "I have to win to be invited".

I support and have tremendous respect for the courageous women now speaking out in this important national dialogue.

On the night of their meeting, she says she was left so frightened by how he "grabbed" her that she asked a security guard in the building they were in for help. "False claims like this undermine the real silence breakers", he said. She also produced emails from Ford that ended with her asking him to stop contacting her and Ford apologizing and agreeing not to.

Ford was hired by Morgan Stanley in 2011 as a senior client relationship manager. "This all demonstrates how this was a matter of convenience during a hyper-sensitive time and not based on real facts".

Ford also serves as a paid on-air political analyst for NBC/MSNBC and regularly appears on the MSNBC program "Morning Joe".

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