A third woman has accused George H.W. Bush of groping her, saying he even used the same ‘David Cop-a-Feel’ joke another accuser mentioned.

Novelist Christina Baker Kline claims the former president’s wandering hands were caught in an official photo from a Houston event for the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy in 2014.

In an essay for Slate, Kline says she and her husband approached Bush, now 93, for a photo after the private luncheon, to which she was invited as a guest author.

Kline writes that Bush told her he was beautiful and then, noting she is an author, said ‘You wanna know my favorite book?’

She writes: ‘By now the photographer was readying the shot. My husband stood on one side of the wheelchair, and I stood on the other. President Bush put his arm around me, low on my back.

‘His comic timing was impeccable. “David Cop-a-feel,” he said, and squeezed my butt, hard, just as the photographer snapped the photo.’

Kline says her husband, who was also in the photo on the other side of Bush, was completely unaware of what was happening at the time.

‘I wasn’t traumatized. I’m not angry. But it shouldn’t have happened,’ Kline wrote, adding that she hopes coming forward would ‘begin to effect change’.
