Another ‘Morning Joe’ regular caught in sex scandal: Harold E. Ford Jr.



Bloomberg reported Thursday that former  Democratic Tennesee congressman Harold E. Ford Jr., and frequent panelist on the CNBC program “Morning Joe,” was fired from the Wall Street-based investment bank Morgan Stanley.

Michele Davis spokeswoman said: “He has been terminated for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies,” in a statement reported by Bloomberg.
