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.
