FORMER US President George H.W. Bush has apologised for any distress caused after an actress accused him of sexual assault.
Heather Lind said the 93-year-old former president had “touched me from behind from his wheelchair” and told a “dirty joke” while posing for a photo when she was promoting her AMC show ‘Turn: Washington’s Spies’
Lind made the allegation on social network Instagram, in a post which has since been deleted, but obviously… we have a copy.
“President Bush would never – under any circumstance – intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologises if his attempt at humour offended Ms Lind,” his spokesman said.
George H.W. Bush was a was a one-term US president from 1989 to 1993, and is the father of George W Bush, who served two terms in the office between 2001 and 2009.
