Morgan Stanley spokeswoman Margaret Draper said Ford was let go for "conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies".
Former Democratic congressman and MSNBC mainstay Harold Ford Jr. was sacked on Thursday by Morgan Stanley after he was accused of "harassment, intimidation, and forcibly" grabbing a woman several years ago, according to HuffPost.
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.

Ford comes from a prominent political family in Tennessee.
Ford has also been a political analyst on NBC/MSNBC. Ford served in the House for almost 10 years before deciding to run for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Republican Bill Frist.

Ford told the Huffington Post he intends to bring "legal action against the reporter who has made these false claims about me as well as Morgan Stanley for improper termination".
