Former Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-Tenn.) was fired from his job at Morgan Stanley after an investigation into a harassment complaint from a female co-worker, HuffPost reported Thursday.
The woman, who requested to remain anonymous, alleged that Ford forcibly grabbed her one evening in Manhattan several years ago. She also accused Ford of harassment and intimidation, according to HuffPost.
A spokeswoman for Morgan Stanley confirmed Fords firing, telling the news outlet he was terminated for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies.

Is he an ICON too, Nancy?
He’s on Morning Joe a lot.
Thats the way it rolls in the private sector. self policing because there is accountability.
Pelosi is looking very vulnerable. She could be a casualty.
Ah, that Oct 2016
Actually he showed a lot of promise when he first became emergent. I thought he was intelligent and diligent and bi-partisan and would legitimately help run this country.
His career was sabotaged by the Pelosi cabal after showing a strong finish for the speaker of the house.
Scary time for men in the workforce. If any female wants you gone, they can lie, stay anonymous , and the guy gets fired on the spot.
This is how it works in the real world. You play grab ass, the firm finds out and you’re fired. Nobody gets to keep their job, nobody gets to have four or five people step forward and you’re still working. It’s way different in the non-political world.
Agreed. While we can have schaufrade(sp?) About Democrats caught up in this, I am troubled by the witch Hunt aspect of this, and by an utter disregard for due process.
How does one defend against a charge that a woman makes that you touched her body years ago? There’s no evidence, no way to prove or disprove anything. There’s no way to really investigate because who knows if the alleged touching really happened?
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon... you know, cause I've worked in a lot of offices, and I tell you, people do that all the time.
You should be troubled. The ultimate target is President Trump.
He’s still a Liberal and a democRAT.
I must be Muslim...because I’m enjoying the Shiite out of this!
Bluto did it..
“Clean and articulate”, too?
He is just being clever to get Southern votes.
