Actress accuses former president George Bush senior of sexual harassment
26 October 2017
Heather Lind, best known for her role in AMC’s Turn Washington’s Spies, accused Bush – in a lengthy Instagram post shared earlier this week that has since been deleted – of inappropriate behaviour. The actress uploaded a photo of Bush, 93, and fellow former President Barack Obama shaking hands and stated that the image had “disturbed her” as when she had met him in a similar circumstance, the elderly leader “touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side”.
FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE H.W. BUSH ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ASSAULT For touching an actress from behind while they were posing for a photo. Bush’s office issued an apology acknowledging the former president “has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner,” and because he uses a wheelchair, “his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures.” A second actress has also come forward.
