The eighth woman accused the former US President George W. Bush - the Elder (1989-1993) of harassment.

She asked not to reveal her name because her work is connected with access to secret data, BBC reported.

The woman told in an interview that the incident occurred in 2004, when she was working as an interpreter at the negotiations of former US President and Spanish Defense Minister Jose Bono Martinez.

She didn’t disclose the details of the meeting, nonetheless, according to the BBC, Martinez tried to use the meeting to establish a more trusting relationship between the newly elected Spanish prime minister and the US administration headed by George W. Bush Junior.

 It was at the photo call after the meeting had finished when the alleged incident occurred. The woman said he “grabbed my bum” during a photo call.

According to her words, after the negotiations she told everything to her children, but didn’t announce publicly about what had happened. She decided to speak up only after a few similar announcements by other women were made.

Earlier, seven women accused the 41st US president who is now 93 years old of harassing. Six of these cases are reported to have occurred between 2003 and 2016, and another one, which was announced on Thursday - in 1992, when the politician was still in power. Senior Bush spokesman Jim McGrath previously explained the ex-president's actions with his state of health, indicating that he has been chained to a wheelchair for five years, so his hand falls on the lower part of the waist of those who are photographed with him.
