Morgan Stanley says Harold Ford Jr. didn't leave over se.ual misconduct

Morgan Stanley, seeking to clarify circumstances surrounding the departure last month of former Congressman Harold Ford Jr., said Monday his separation was based on violations of corporate policy.

“The press has reported that Mr. Ford was terminated for sexual misconduct. He was not,” according to a statement from the New York-based bank.

Bloomberg News reports that Morgan Stanley conducted an investigation into a harassment complaint against Ford by a journalist. The bank said Monday in its release that it hadn’t received any internal allegations of sexual harassment or misconduct. The firm’s statement is part of a legal settlement with the former politician reached over the weekend, according to the New York Times.
