Morgan Stanley fires former lawmaker for misconduct

Former Dem rep fired by Morgan Stanley after harassment investigation

Former Tennessee Congressman Harold Ford Jr. was sacked by Morgan Stanley following the company's investigation into alleged misconduct, according to a report Thursday. False claims like this undermine the real silence breakers.

After leaving Congress, Ford has served in a couple of academic roles at Vanderbilt and New York University, and has appeared frequently as a guest and political expert on national television shows.

Security Council condemns reported slave trade of migrants in Libya
The ministry further said the Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, had invited the Nigerian Embassy's Head of Mission, Mr. The federal government has identified 5,000 more Nigerians trapped in Libyan detention camps.

A woman who dealt with Ford in a professional capacity, but who isn't an employee of the bank, was interviewed by Morgan Stanley's human resources department in the probe, according to the Huffington Post.

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.

"A new Tomb Raider game is coming" says Square Enix

After the alleged incident, he continued to contact her until she specifically told him not to, the news outlet reported.

An email to Morgan Stanley wasn't returned and Ford couldn't be reached immediately for comment. 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. "And I apologize for whatever I may have said or what was said. I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life", Ford wrote. "I will now be bringing legal action against the reporter who has made these false claims about me as well as Morgan Stanley for improper termination". His father, Harold Ford Sr., held a congressional seat for 12 terms before retiring. 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. Ford lost that 2006 race by fewer than three points to current Republican Sen.
