A Broadway actress has become the seventh woman to allege former President George H.W. Bush groped her during a photo op.  Megan Elizabeth Lewis, 38, tells NJ Advance Media that Bush forcibly touched her after he asked her to take a photo with him at a performance of "Legally Blonde: The Musical" in Houston in 2009. Her claims follow directly on the heels of a Time magazine story in which Roslyn Corrigan claimed Bush groped her in 2003, when she was 16, during a visit the former president made to a Texas CIA office in where her father worked as an intelligence officer. As with the alleged Corrigan episode, Lewis said Bush was not in a wheelchair at the time her incident happened. Lewis, who lives in Brooklyn, said she hadn't asked for a photo with the former president, who was then 84, when he came to the show at Houston's Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in February of 2009. But she said he asked her to take one with him, so she approached him.  The actress prepared herself for the photo by making a funny face, as she often does when posing. Bush, she said, made a comment about Barbara Bush -- who was also in attendance -- being "his silver fox," before allegedly groping Lewis as she mugged for the camera.  "He grabbed my butt and I was like 'wow,'" she said. "I remember being really grossed out."  "I was just disappointed," Lewis added pointing to Bush's alleged comment about Barbara Bush just moments before. "You just implied to me that you love your wife very much."...Read more
