George HW Bush Accused Of Groping Teenager In Sixth Allegation Against Him

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.

She told Time Magazine she met Mr Bush at a 2003 meeting of Central Intelligence Agency officers in Texas, where her father worked. Bush, who is now 93, has been in a wheelchair for about five years, and his spokesman, Jim McGrath, previously explained that his arm might fall at people's waists and that he sometimes pats "women's rears" and tells them "good-natured jokes" to put them at ease.

Bush is standing in the photo in question. The women alleged that Bush had gabbed them on the rear during photos.

Actress Heather Lind was the first to speak out against the 41st president in October, saying Bush groped her from behind as his wife, Barbara Bush, looked on and "rolled her eyes as if to say 'not again.'" NY actress Jordan Grolnick, best-selling author Christina Baker Kline, former ME state Senate candidate Amanda Staples and former journalist Liz Allen came out with allegations against Bush days later. When she and her parents posed for a photo with Bush, who was 79 at the time, Corrigan said he groped her behind. "I just burst into uncontrollable sobbing", said Corrigan.

Bush is one of dozens of powerful politicians and celebrities to be accused of sexual misconduct since actor Alyssa Milano launched the Me Too campaign in October, encouraging women to share their stories on social media after Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual harassment by more than a dozen women. "Do you know who my favorite magician is?' And we all said, 'No, who, ' and he said 'David Cop-a-Feel" and at that moment, I felt him grab my behind", she said.

"I'm just sad that we've come to this", Laura Bush told CNN.

Italy face crunch Sweden game as World Cup disaster beckons
Italy has won the World Cup four times - 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006 - and lost two finals in 1970 and 1994. We invite them to support us, but realise the time has come for us to show them what we've got.

Bush was standing up for the 2003 photo, and was not in a wheelchair for alleged gropings in 2004 and 2006. "And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again".

"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.

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.

In 2003, Bush was not only not a sick man confined to a wheelchair, he was healthy and vigorous enough to go skydiving the following year.

Amen said illnesses like his can lead to unusual behavior.

However, Grolnick said she doesn't think that excuses Bush's behavior. "I'd probably chase him down and yell at him", she added.
