Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush Apologizes for Repeatedly Groping Women

Washington, October 27 (RHC)-- Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has apologized for repeatedly groping women, after being accused of sexual assault by two actresses.  Actress Heather Lind says that when she met the president in 2014: “He touched me from behind from his wheelchair … He told me a dirty joke.  And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again.” 

Actress Jordana Grolnick then also accused the former president of groping her during a photo in 2016, saying: “He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, 'Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?'  As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, 'David Cop-a-Feel!'” 

In response to the accusations, Bush’s spokesperson said: “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 intended to be a good-natured manner.  Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate.  To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.”
