Two women have accused President George H.W. Bush of sexual assault in the last week according to the Cut.
A second woman has come forward to accuse former president George H.W. Bush of groping her during a photo op. On Wednesday night, a day after actress Heather Lind shared a since-deleted Instagram post in which she claimed Bush “touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side,” the website Deadspin reported that a second actress, Jordana Grolnick, has a nearly identical story about Bush 41.
Grolnick was in Kennebunkport, Maine making a film when the cast decided to shoot a group photo with the former President. Grolnick had been warned that Bush had a reputation for fondling. According to Deadspin:
“We all circled around him and Barbara for a photo, and I was right next to him,” she says. “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!’” Grolnick says others in the room “laughed politely and out of discomfort.” Former first lady Barbara Bush was among those nearby. “[She] said something along the lines of, ‘He’s going to get himself put into jail!’ to which we laughed harder,” Grolnick says.
