George H.W. Bush apologized recently after being accused of sexual assault by actress Heather Lind, noting through a spokesperson that the incident had simply been "his attempt at humor".

The actress of 34 years explained have chose to get out of the silence, seeing the former president, aged 93 and in a wheelchair for years, appearing on stage Saturday during a benefit concert for victims of the hurricanes that have ravaged the southern United States and the Caribbean.

In her Instagram post, Ms Lind said she was spurred to make the claim after seeing a photo of Barack Obama shaking Mr Bush Senior's hand at a recent fundraiser for hurricane victims, which she said had "disturbed" her. It moved me from behind from his wheelchair, while his wife Barbara Bush stood at his side. Lind also alleges Bush told her a "dirty joke".

Then Bush, like some problematically horny cartoon character of yore, just kept doing it: "And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again".

Lind said Bush touched her from behind twice while he was sitting in his wheelchair and told her an inappropriate joke while they posed for a photo to promote a television show she had worked on.

These charges occur in the wake of the case of Harvey Weinstein, who is pushing many women from different backgrounds to denounce openly of sexual assaults committed by men of power and till now passed on in silence.

'I can be a symbol of my democracy. "Barbara rolled her eyes as if to say 'not again'".

The actress also confirmed that she chose to go public thanks to the "the bravery of other women who have spoken up and written about their experiences".
