Another woman accuses George HW Bush of groping her

14 November 2017

Another woman has come forward accusing former President George H.W. Bush of groping her while posing for a photo.

Corrigan attended an event at the the Central Intelligence Agency in The Woodlands, Texas where she had an opportunity to meet Bush and she and her mother posed for a photo with him.

"I was really, really upset - she was very upset, she was really, really mad", she said of her daughter's reaction.

Time reports that a sixth woman, a retired journalist in Pennsylvania, posted to Facebook last month that Bush touched her from behind during a 2004 photo opportunity.

Mr Bush - who served as United States president from 1989 to 1992, has been confined to a wheelchair for the past five years and suffers from vascular parkinsonism.

"He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, 'Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?' As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, 'David Cop-a-Feel!'" she told Deadspin. Actress Heather Lind was the first to level accusations against the former president on October 25th, 2017. TIME spoke with seven people who said Corrigan told them about the incident prior to the recent allegations against the former president.

"George Bush simply does not have it in his heart to knowingly cause anyone harm or distress, and he again apologizes to anyone he may have offended during a photo op", Mr McGrath told Time magazine in a statement.

The film producer has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by at least 93 women.

A spokesman for Bush, Jim McGrath, has addressed the accusations, saying that Bush "has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner".

He added that due to the former president's use of a wheel chair, "his arms fall on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures". However, Bush has only been in a wheelchair since 2012, and he is standing in the 2003 photo with Corrigan.

Amen said illnesses like his can lead to unusual behavior. "I can't sleep anymore, because that's not true, and it's not an excuse".
