"I was really, really confused", Ms Corrigan said.

"My initial reaction was absolute horror", she said about the incident.

In the past, George H.W. Bush was constantly in the media for making decisions as the the 41st president of the United States of America. "You just implied to me that you love your wife very much".

Corrigan is the sixth woman to come forward since October 24, saying the former leader grabbed them from behind while posing for a photo. However, it seems that the Bush's accusers have no relationship to each other, and are merely stating what they held inside for years.

Roslyn Corrigan is the sixth woman to level such allegations.

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

Bush groped her buttocks while she alongside her mother posed for a photograph with the former president, she said. "Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate", Bush's second statement read.

But Corrigan said that when Bush groped her, they were both standing. He stood upright in his photograph with Corrigan and her mother, Sari Young. The magazine spoke with seven people, including Corrigan's family members and friends, who confirmed that they had been told of the alleged groping incident prior to the other recent allegations. Corrigan attended the Woodlands High School at the time, Time reported. Growing up dreaming of getting into politics, she was excited to meet the former president, but was instead shocked and devastated when Bush grabbed her butt as the photo was being taken.

Rosalyn Corrigan met Bush in 2003 when she was 16 years old at a gathering of CIA officers with her mother and father, who was an intelligence officer. "I just burst into uncontrollable sobbing", she said. She said he squeezed her buttocks "a couple times". "And you've got your husband's job that could be in jeopardy". Lind wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post that Bush grabbed her while they posed for a photo during the premiere of a historical TV show in 2013. He told me a dirty joke.

"To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke-and on occasion, he has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner", McGrath said in an October statement. He said his favorite magician was "David Cop-a-feel", in a almost identical manner to the experience described in Baker Kline's essay (Bush allegedly asked if the author wanted to know his favorite book, but the "Cop-a-feel" answer was the same).

"I'm just sad that we've come to this", Laura Bush said.
