A teenager has accused George H. W. Bush of inappropriately touching her
WASHINGTON: Another woman has stepped forward to accuse former President George H.W. Bush of inappropriately touching her.
Roslyn Corrigan told Time magazine that she was 16 when Bush allegedly grabbed her buttocks as she posed for a photo with him in 2003 at a gathering of CIA officers north of Houston. She attended the event with her mother and father, who was an intelligence analyst.
“My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused,” she told the magazine.
“The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything. What does a teenager say to the expresident of the United States? Like, ‘Hey dude, you shouldn’t have touched me like that’?”
A spokesman for the 41st president, Jim McGrath, said in a statement that Mr Bush regrets any offensive actions.
