A second actress has accused former US president George HW Bush of inappropriate touching.

Jordana Grolnick says Bush grabbed her buttocks during a group photo last year at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine.

She told Deadspin that Bush quipped that his favourite 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.

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 apologises “to anyone he has offended”.
