Harold Ford, Jr. responds to misconduct allegations, denies any wrongdoing

The Huffington Post reported that they interviewed Ford's accuser twice.

"He has been terminated for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies", said a spokesperson. In a response email, the woman allegedly told him to stop contacting her and cited his inappropriate behavior during their last encounter. The woman alleged that Ford harassed, intimidated and grabbed her in an incident several years ago, according to the news outlet, which didn't identify her. Ford only desisted after the woman emailed him explicitly warning him to knock it off, it states.

He had meanwhile been keeping his political irons hot as a frequent guest commentator on the NBC "Morning Joe" program and in other venues, like a continuing role as lecturer at the Gerald Ford School of Public Policy at the University of MI, the former congressman's alma mater. "Hey very sorry. Meant no harm", the email reads.

"I'm just learning right now", he said before hanging up on a reporter. And my overtures are strictly professional. "I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life", Ford wrote. False claims like this undermine the real silence breakers. "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".

Ford, 47, is part of the prominent Ford Family of Memphis politics and was widely considered a rising star in Democratic politics with national political aspirations.

Ford left Congress in 2007 and has been a managing director at Morgan Stanley since 2011.

Ford served in the House for 10 years until 2006 - taking over from his father, longtime lawmaker Harold Ford Sr. - when he mounted a failed bid for a Senate seat. Ford is battling Republican Bob Corker for the seat being vacated by Senate Majority Leader Bill First.
