Former President George H.W. Bush apologizes to actress Heather Lind for ‘sexual assault’

Former President George H.W. Bush has apologized after the actress Heather Lind accused him of groping her several years ago during a TV promotion event.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Lind wrote that Bush “touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side. He told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again.” The 2014 incident reportedly happened during an event for the AMC series Turn: Washington’s Spies. The 41st president’s spokesperson, Jim McGrath, said in a statement that “President Bush would never—under any circumstance—intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind.”
