When the 16-year-old posed for a picture with Bush and her mother, she says the former president grabbed her ass.

Roslyn Corrigan, who was 16 years old at the time, was a visitor at the Central Intelligence Agency offices in Texas and was posing for a photo with Mr Bush when he allegedly "groped her buttocks", the magazine reports.

Corrigan has told multiple people about the incident over the years, including her mother who she told right after it allegedly occurred.

Rosyln Corrigan is the sixth woman to accuse Mr Bush of inappropriately touching her in similar circumstances. "I was really, really confused", Corrigan told Time.

Corrigan is the sixth woman to come forward since October 24, saying the former leader grabbed them from behind while posing for a photo.

"What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States?" she asked. The spokesperson also says Bush wasn't trying to offend anyone.

"When I heard that was the reason, like, 'Oh, he's just an old man and he doesn't know any better and he's just being harmless and playful and it's just where his arm falls..."

The film producer has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by at least 93 women.

Bush's spokesperson, Jim McGrath, previously said that because Bush is confined to a wheelchair, his hands fall at the waists of those with whom he takes photos and that he "has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner". Retired journalist Liz Allen wrote on Facebook that Bush touched her from behind while posing for a photograph in 2004.

On Nov. 2 Laura Bush told CNN that the allegations against her father-in-law were "very innocent incidents". "It was a serious squeeze". However, Bush has only been in a wheelchair since 2012, and he is standing in the 2003 photo with Corrigan. Trump said he likes to grab women by the pussy, Obama used flying robots to murder Americans and foreign civilians extrajudicially, Bush started an illegal war and torture program, Clinton is a rapist, Bush an ass grabber and Reagan sold illegal drugs in inner cities to fund the Contras.

"No, I don't think that excuses it, and I don't think that explains it", she said. "I can't sleep anymore, because that's not true, and it's not an excuse".
