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.
Multiple media reports suggest Ford is the latest powerful man to lose his job because of accusations of sexual misconduct.
Ford served in Congress with the host of “Morning Joe,” former Republican Florida congressman Joseph J. Scarborough, and the insider Capitol Hill banter between the two men has been one of the hallmarks of the program that has influence among political influence leaders that outweighs its raw audience size.
In Congress, Ford was often one of the conservative Democrats, who caucus as the Blue Dog Democrats, looking to work with Republicans on matters, such as national security, economics and social issues.
Ford served in Congress from 1996 to 2007, first elected at the age of 26 and in
Ford joined Morgan Stanley in 2011 as a managing director reporting to Gregory Fleming, the president of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Morgan Stanley Investment Management. Fleming left the bank in January 2016 and in October joined the investment fund operated on the behalf of the Rockefeller family.
When Ford joined Morgan Stanley from Bank of America, Fleming said: “Consistent with our focus on providing clients with the best advice and long-term value, Harold will play an important role in executing a key business strategy at Morgan Stanley.”
Mr. Ford served in Congress from 1996 to 2007 as a Democrat from the 9th district of Tennessee. First elected at the age of 26, he was the youngest member of the 105th and the 106th Congresses. He served as a member of the House Budget Committee and the Financial Services Committee as well as a member and leader of the Blue Dog Democrats. In 2000, he gave the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention.
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
