Former President George H.W. Bush is facing new allegations from a Michigan woman who said he touched her inappropriately while he was in office at an event in April 1992. The woman, now 55, spoke exclusively with CNN and said she was attending a fundraiser for Bush's re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her rear end during a photo-op."We got closer together for a family photo and it was like 'Holy crap!'" she said, describing the moment Bush touched her buttocks. "It was like a gentle squeeze."f
In interviews in the last few days, senior campaign and White House officials said the hostility expressed at the convention toward homosexuals, feminists, welfare recipients and women who identify with Hillary Clinton was a result of a strategy that was poorly managed and consequently ran amok. A senior Bush aide attributed much of problem to the speeches by Mr. Robertson and Mr. Buchanan. "The convention was not supposed to be focused so much on family values," he said. "But you had two speeches that attracted an inordinate amount of attention, and then Marilyn Quayle's speech seemed to reach the critical mass."
