Seventh woman alleges George HW Bush groped her during photo op

Fourth woman says President George HW Bush groped her in photo shoot

Another woman has stepped forward to accuse former U.S. president George HW Bush of inappropriately touching her.

Her claims follow directly on the heels of a Time magazine story in which Roslyn Corrigan claimed Bush groped her in 2003, when she was 16, during a visit the former president made to a Texas CIA office in where her father worked as an intelligence officer. But Bush was 79 years old at the time of Corrigan's alleged incident and not yet in a wheelchair, so she claims that "excuse for his senile, old man antics... is not true".

Corrigan says this is when the former president grabbed her from her waist to buttocks area. She says she was horrified and very confused.

"What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States?" she asked. A Bush spokesperson tells "USA Today" the ex-president "does not have it in his heart" to knowingly cause anyone distress. Now the list of the accused includes former president George H.W. Bush.

Mr Bush has been accused of "inappropriately touching" at least three other women, according to CNN.

With the case reported Monday there are now six accusations of sexual harassment reported against the former U.S. president since last October 24, when American actress Heather Lind said he touched her inappropriately while telling her a "dirty joke" during a promotional tour of her TV series.

"Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate".

Corrigan's mother said she didn't say anything to Bush in part out of fear of jeopardizing her husband's job.

Ms Corrigan said as the photo was being taken, Mr Bush dropped his hand to her bottom and squeezed.

McGrath later noted that Bush is confined to a wheelchair and frequently has his arm lower on the waists of people when he takes photos. The rare syndrome is similar to Parkinson's disease. "I was actually there to be taken seriously, and I wasn't", she added.

"He didn't shake my hand. "Do you know who my favorite magician is?' And we all said, 'No, who, ' and he said 'David Cop-a-Feel" and at that moment, I felt him grab my behind", she said. "And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again", Lind wrote in a now-deleted post on Instagram. "What are you supposed to do?" she told Time.

Amen said illnesses like his can lead to unusual behavior. That's when things went south, she said. Liz Allen, a former editor at the Erie Times-News in Erie, Pennsylvania, who recently won a city council seat there, said Bush touched her rear end in 2004, at a local business event.

He added that it is noteworthy that the incidents allegedly happened late in his life.
