    Harold Ford Jr fired for misconduct

    The investment bank Morgan Stanley said Thursday that it had severed its ties with former Rep. Harold Ford Jr., a managing director at the bank, citing an accusation of misconduct.

    Ford, who is also a political commentator on MSNBC, forcefully denied the accusation and threatened to sue both the bank and the woman who accused him, identified in his statement as a journalist. The Huffington Post, which first reported the allegations, said the journalist accused Ford of forcibly grabbing her one evening after a business meeting, and then continuing to email her after the incident, leading her to ask that the contacts stop. NBC News has not confirmed the details of the accusation nor spoken to the accuser, who was not identified in the Huffington Post.

    Morgan Stanley released a statement saying it fired Ford after an investigation of the complaint.

    "He has been terminated for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies," Morgan Stanley said in a statement sent to NBC News. The statement did not disclose details of the allegation.

    Ford said the incident "simply did not happen."

    Very strange. Old event. Didn't seem outrageous, at least not in the article I read earlier. The guy apologized at the time it occurred. Appeared not to continue whatever was deemed offensive. And now years later he's canned.

    I was watching Ford on MSNBC last night and for some reason thought "Hmm...I wonder when his name's coming up?"
