She told Deadspin that Bush quipped that his favorite magician is “David Cop-a-Feel” and grabbed her. She said Barbara Bush responded, “He’s going to get himself put in jail.”

Grolnick couldn’t be reached immediately by The Associated Press. Her story came to light after People magazine reported a similar allegation by actress Heather Lind.

Lind, an actress on the AMC Series “TURN: Washington’s Spies,” accused the former leader of touching her from behind and telling her a “dirty joke,” while she was posing for a photo beside him in 2014.

The former president’s office said he routinely tells the same joke “and on occasion he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner.”

The statement says he apologizes “to anyone he has offended.”
