At Morgan Stanley, he was tasked with 'managing relationships with corporate directors, senior executives and institutional investors, as well as private clients'.

Photo Harold Ford Jr., a former congressman, was sacked from his position as a managing director at the financial services firm Morgan Stanley for what the company described as behavior "inconsistent with our values".

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 firing came as the former lawmaker was facing allegations of misconduct, according to a report in The Huffington Post, which was the first outlet to report the firing.

At least one woman was interviewed by Morgan Stanley as part of the investigation, Huffington Post reported. She also produced emails from Ford that ended with her asking him to stop contacting her and Ford apologizing and agreeing not to.

"This simply did not happen".

The Huffington Post earlier cited an unnamed woman who claimed Ford harassed her on a night several years ago.

The woman alleges Ford continued to contact her after the incident, and she eventually requested he cease contact, the report states.

"I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life", he said, in a statement released by his spokesman, Davidson Goldin. 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.

He added: "I support and have tremendous respect for the fearless women now speaking out in this important national dialogue". His father, Harold Ford Sr., held a congressional seat for 12 terms before retiring, leaving his son to run for the seat, a race which he won handily.

Ford left Congress in 2007 and has been a managing director at Morgan Stanley since 2011. He is alson one of the most visible members MSNBC's team of contributors - particularly on the network's "Morning Joe".
