George HW Bush Accused of Inappropriately Touching a Woman When She Was 16
Former President George H.W. Bush is being accused of inappropriately touching a woman when she was 16.
She is the sixth woman to accuse George H.W. Bush of inappropriately touching her in similar circumstances.
Rosyln Corrigan told Time Magazine she met the former president at a 2003 meeting of CIA officers in Texas, where her father worked.
“My initial reaction was absolute horror,” she said about the incident.
“I was really, really confused.”
“I was a child,” Rosyln Corrigan added.
George H. W. Bush Issues Second Apology Following Assault Claims
A George H.W. Bush spokesman has previously acknowledged the former president has touched several women on the rear.
Rosyln Corrigan said the incident occurred as George H.W. Bush was posing for a photo with her and her mother at the CIA office in The Woodlands, Texas, in November 2003.
“As soon as the picture was being snapped on the one-two-three he dropped his hands from my waist down to my buttocks and gave it a nice, ripe squeeze, which would account for the fact that in the photograph my mouth is hanging wide open,” she said.
The former president was 79-year-old at the time.
Last month, after several other women came forward with similar stories, George H.W. Bush’s spokesman said that due to the former president’s use of a wheel chair, “his arms fall on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures”.
