Former US Democratic congressman Harold Ford, Jr. was sacked by Morgan Stanley for inappropriate conduct.
Ford joined Morgan Stanley in 2011 as a managing director.
After leaving politics in 2007, he was snapped up by financial firms who wanted to capitalize on his contacts. The company said at the time that he would be responsible for "building business opportunities for clients" as well as managing relationships with corporate directors, senior executives, institutional investors, and private clients.
Ford regularly appears on MSNBC's "Morning Joe", where now-disgraced political reporter Mark Halperin was also a frequent guest. Mark Halperin, another of the show's regular fixtures, was sacked amid accusations of sexual misconduct last month.
A spokeswoman told Reuters on Thursday that Ford had been fired, saying that he was let go for "conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies".
