Tempo - - News -

HOUS­TON (AP) – An­other woman has stepped for­ward to claim for­mer Pres­i­dent Ge­orge H.W. Bush in­ap­pro­pri­ately touched her.

Roslyn Cor­ri­gan tells Time that she posed for a photo with Bush in 2003 at a gath­er­ing of CIA of­fi­cers north of Hous­ton. She was 16 at the time and at­tended the event with her mother and fa­ther, who was an in­tel­li­gence an­a­lyst.

Cor­ri­gan says as the photo was be­ing taken, Bush dropped his hand to her but­tocks and squeezed.

Time spoke with seven peo­ple who said they had been told by Cor­ri­gan about the en­counter in the years af­ter­ward.

A spokesman for the for­mer pres­i­dent, Jim McGrath, says Bush has apol­o­gized “to any­one he may have of­fended dur­ing a photo op.”

Cor­ri­gan is at least the fifth woman to claim Bush groped her.
