Heather Lind Accuses George H.W. Bush Sexually Assaulted Her
According to NYDailyNews, AMC Networks actress Heather Lind has come forward with claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her from his wheelchair after she saw him standing with fellow ex-Prez Barack Obama.
Lind took to Instagram to post the lengthy revelation, but then deleted it a short time after.
Heather must not know that “delete” isn’t an option in the internet.
“I found it disturbing because I recognize the respect ex-presidents are given for having served. And I feel pride and reverence toward many of the men in the photo. But when I got the chance to meet George H. W. Bush four years ago to promote a historical television show I was working on, he sexually assaulted me while I was posing for a similar photo,” Lind, 34, wrote.
She went on to say:
“He didn’t shake my hand. He 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. Barbara rolled her eyes as if to say ‘not again.’ His security guard told me I shouldn’t have stood next to him for the photo.”
This incident allegedly took place 3 years ago in 2014 when Bush was 90 years old. A spokesperson for H.W. didn’t exactly deny Lind’s story:
“President Bush would never — under any circumstance — intentionally cause anyone distress, and he most sincerely apologizes if his attempt at humor offended Ms. Lind,” his spokesman said.
Dirty old man.
