Woman accuses George HW Bush of groping her when she was 16

14 November 2017

Former president George H.W. Bush has been accused by a sixth woman of touching her without consent, when she was just 16 years old.

Roslyn Corrigan met the ex-president in 2003 at an event held in the Woodland, Texas, CIA office where her father worked.

Having seen Bush speak at a conference held at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University earlier that month, Corrigan asked her father if she could leave school early to see Bush speak at the Central Intelligence Agency event.

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

Time spoke with seven people who said they had been told by Corrigan about the encounter in the years afterward. "George Bush does not have it in his heart to knowingly cause anyone harm or distress, and he again apologizes to anyone he may have offended during a photo op", McGrath said in a statement.

A sixth woman has come forward to say that former President George H.W. Bush groped her during a photo op.

Jim McGrath, a spokesman for Bush, issued an apology on the former president's behalf in the wake of this latest allegation.

"We all circled around him and Barbara for a photo, and I was right next to him", she told Deadspin.

Corrigan is the sixth woman to come forward since October 24, saying the former leader grabbed them from behind while posing for a photo.

McGrath later noted that Bush is confined to a wheelchair and frequently has his arm lower on the waists of people when he takes photos.

"To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke - and on occasion, he has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner", McGrath said.

She told her mother what happened as soon as Mr Bush stepped away, the mother told Time.

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

In the photo taken with Corrigan, he was not in a wheelchair and is clearly shown standing. Retired journalist Liz Allen wrote on Facebook that Bush touched her from behind while posing for a photograph in 2004.

Regardless, Bush was standing upright in 2003 when he allegedly groped Corrigan. "I can't sleep anymore, because that's not true, and it's not an excuse".
