(Newser) – A Broadway actress says she was groped by former President George H.W. Bush in 2009, before he started using the wheelchair that a spokesman has cited in previous apologies, the AP reports. Megan Elizabeth Lewis tells NJ.com that Bush was standing when he grabbed her buttocks at the performance of a musical in Houston. She says she was upset by a spokesman's statement that Bush's arm sometimes "falls on the lower waist of people" when he is in his wheelchair. The spokesman, Jim McGrath, did not respond to a request for additional comment Tuesday. Six other women have said Bush grabbed their buttocks as they stood next to him for photos.
