Another woman has come forward with groping allegations against former President George H.W. Bush.
"To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke - and on occasion, he has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner", said spokesman Jim McGrath in a statement.
Roslyn Corrigan told Time that she posed for a photo with the former president in 2003 at a gathering of Central Intelligence Agency officers north of Houston.
"I don't know, maybe it never really hit people that I was a child at the time and that goes beyond a guy being inappropriate in the workplace to a peer or somebody in his age range", she said.
In late October, after several other women came forward with similar stories, Mr McGrath said that Mr Bush "on occasion, has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner". When she and her parents posed for a photo with Bush, who was 79 at the time, Corrigan said he groped her behind. "To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke - and on occasion, he has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner", McGrath said.

"He touched me from behind with his wife Barbara Bush at his side", Lind wrote.
"I was like, 'Oh my goodness, what just happened?'" Ms Corrigan said in an interview with Time.
As Radar previously reported, Bush's rep claimed that his alleged groping comes from his years of sitting in a wheelchair.
Corrigan has told multiple people about the incident over the years, including her mother who she told right after it allegedly occurred. "Her mother, Sari Young, recalls that as soon as Bush walked away, her daughter told her, "'He grabbed me on the rear end.' And I said, 'What, what?' And she said, 'Yes, he grabbed me when they were taking the picture.
The issue erupted three weeks ago when actress Heather Lind accused Bush of groping her as they posed for a photo taken during a promotion for a television show. "I was really, really confused", Corrigan added.
"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"..." I can't. I cannot sit with that. However, Bush has only been in a wheelchair since 2012, and he is standing in the 2003 photo with Corrigan. "I by no means hold the theater at fault or accountable, and I don't think they were putting us in danger", she said.
