A Michigan woman has come forward saying President George H.W. Bush inappropriately touched her during a 1992 campaign event, according to CNN.

The woman said she was taking a photo with Bush and her father at a fundraising event, when Bush "grabbed her rear end." Her ex-husband and a friend corroborated the story to CNN. While several women have come forward, this is the first allegation against Bush while he was in office.
