A sixth woman has come forward to accuse George HW Bush of groping her, and she says she was only 16 when it happened.It was 2003, and Corrigan's father and other intelligence officers had brought their family members to an event to meet Bush, who was 79.
While she was standing next to the former president for a photo, "as soon as the picture was being snappedon 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 told her mother what had happened as soon as Bush walked away, but they never said anything because they were worried about putting her dad’s job in jeopardy.
The former President’s spokesperson said, ”George Bush simply 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.”
Bush's other accusers are an actress, another actress, an author, a former Maine Senate candidate, and a retired journalist, all of whom shared similar stories about groping that allegedly occurred during photo ops.
