OGUNQUIT, Maine (AP) — A second actress is accusing former President George H.W. 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 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.

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."
