 Bush 41 apologizes for groping of 16-year-old girl

Former president George H.W. Bush arrives for an NFL football game between the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts, Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, in Houston.

George H. W. Bush apologized Monday after another woman said the former president groped her during a 2003 photo op when she was 16 years old.

Time magazine reported on Monday that Rosyln Corrigan is accusing Bush of groping her buttocks when she was standing next to him for a photo at a November 2003 event at a CIA office, which she attended with her parents. 

"My initial reaction was absolute horror. I was really, really confused," Corrigan told Time. "The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didnt say anything. What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States? Like, Hey dude, you shouldnt have touched me like that?"

In a statement provided to USA TODAY, Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said, "George Bush simply does not have it in his heart to knowingly cause anyone distress, and he again apologizes to anyone he offended during a photo op."

Corrigan is the sixth woman since Oct. 24 to come forward with allegations of the former president groping them during photo ops.
