Bush grop­ing tale spreads

Mercury (Hobart) - - WORLD -

A FIFTH woman has ac­cused for­mer Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush of in­ap­pro­pri­ately touch­ing her.

Roslyn Cor­ri­gan told Time mag­a­zine she was 16 when Mr Bush al­legedly grabbed her but­tocks as she posed for a photo with him in 2003 at a gath­er­ing of CIA of­fi­cers.

She at­tended the event with her mother and fa­ther, who was an in­tel­li­gence an­a­lyst.

“The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still stand­ing there, I didn’t say any­thing,” she said. “What does a teenager say to the ex­pres­i­dent of the United States?”
