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

Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush waves from the field before Game 5 of the 2017 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros in Houston Texas on Oct. 29 2017

Another woman has stepped forward to accuse former President George H.W. Bush of inappropriately touching her.

Roslyn Corrigan met the ex-president in 2003 at an event held in the Woodland, Texas, CIA office where her father worked. She says she was horrified and very confused.

On Monday, Jim McGrath, a spokesman for Mr Bush, told the BBC the 41st president, who once directed the Central Intelligence Agency, "simply does not have it in his heart to knowingly cause anyone harm or distress, and he again apologises to anyone he may have offended during a photo op".

"What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States?" she asked. "To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely". And I believe that it might be meant that way, but it isn't 1950, you can't just go around slapping women on the ass to say good job.

The other five women who have accused Bush of nonconsensual touching all said the incidents occurred as they were posing for photos with him.

That same week, author Christina Baker Kline wrote in Slate that Bush grabbed her behind her while posing for a photo with her husband in 2014.

He added that while he's now in good health, he "honest to God" doesn't know if he'll join the race. He told NBC's "Today" show in an interview that he was not yet ready to enter a political contest.

Bush has apologized through his spokesman Jim McGrath to the other accusers and explained that being in a wheelchair puts him at waist level with those who take photos with him.

"I'm just sad that we've come to this", Laura Bush told CNN. It was unmistakable. It was not just a pat.

Reactions to the revelations about Bush 41 have been mixed, with some coming to the former president's defense and attributing his actions to his age and physical illness - Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for the past several years and suffers from a form of Parkinson's disease.

But Corrigan said that when Bush groped her, they were both standing.

Amen said illnesses like his can lead to unusual behavior.

He added that it is noteworthy that the incidents allegedly happened late in his life. Trump said he likes to grab women by the pussy, Obama used flying robots to murder Americans and foreign civilians extrajudicially, Bush started an illegal war and torture program, Clinton is a rapist, Bush an ass grabber and Reagan sold illegal drugs in inner cities to fund the Contras. "I can't sleep anymore, because that's not true, and it's not an excuse".
