SESAME STREET'S Elmo accused of child sex abuse...
Daily Mail ^ | 11-12-12 | Jill Reilly

The man who voices the puppet of Elmo on Sesame Street has taken leave amid allegations he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy.

Kevin Clash, 52, has taken a leave of absence from the popular children's show after the programme's lawyers were contacted by a 23-year-old man who claims he had a sexual relationship with the puppeteer seven years ago, when he was aged 16.

TMZ, who reported the allegations, said that Mr Clash had admitted he had a relationship with the man, but only after the accuser was an adult and said the accusations were both false and defamatory.

Allegations: Kevin Clash, the voice and movements behind Sesame Street's Elmo has taken leave amid allegations he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy

'I had a relationship with [the accuser]. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not,' said Mr Clash who joined Sesame Street in the mid-80s,

The website reported that after the accuser's initial meeting with Sesame Street lawyers, he felt that that he was being silenced so he hired a lawyer.

A leave of absence? Isn’t that a requirement for work at PBS?

First they came for Big Bird, but I didn’t speak up because I am not a large feathered freeloader. Then they came for Elmo, but I didn’t speak up because I’m not a gay, black pedophile. Then they came for...

It's apparently not an accident that Elmo represents the greatest threat.

“Almost as good as my own “Bugger Me Lions” at Penn.”

It goes right along with (you can’t make this stuff up) Jerry Sandusky’s book “Touched”

Am I wrong: a sixteen year old cannot give "consent" to a sexual relationship-it would be rape (I cannot find in what jurisdiction this took place so I may be wrong).

“Am I wrong: a sixteen year old cannot give “consent” to a sexual relationship-it would be rape (I cannot find in what jurisdiction this took place so I may be wrong).”

Whatever jurisdiction this took place in I’m sure has a law or laws that address the consent issue.

In my state there is an age cutoff so that what would be a “lesser” offense for a victim who is 16 years old would be treated as a greater offense if the victim were, say, 13 years old.

In the above example, neither victim can give “consent”.

We have been deceived into believing there is a separate class of perversion called pedophilia. In reality Sodomites require ever increasing stimulation in order to maintain the same feelings of aliveness. This need causes them to seek out younger and younger boys. Sodomy is a crime not a mere matter of personal preference.

As Norm MacDonald said regarding Michael Jackson,

folks, get it right, he’s not a “pedophile”, he’s a
HOMOSEXUAL pedophile.

Males involved in children’s programming have always given me the creeps, particularly where there are children involved in the show and not just puppets or animation. We’ve moved well beyond the days of Mr. Rogers in the US and The Friendly Giant in Canada. The homo-predators are attracted to places where they have prospects.

Depends on the state. In some states, DC, and ironically the UK given who's reporting here about "child sex abuse," 16 is legal age.

Looks like Sesame Street is filmed in NY. Age of consent there appears to be 17yo. There is an affirmative defense law if the age gap of those involved meets the criteria.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone is looking for a payday.

Intel and UPS have announced they will no longer give money to the Boy Scout’s because of the organization’s anti-gay policy. No doubt the Scouts will ultimately cave and this behavior will become routine. Part of our brave new world.

a 16 year old cannot give consent in most areas. So the accuser may be a liar. Angry young men and women know the best way to get back at someone is to accuse of inappropriate sex.

Now that homosexual “marriage” is a foregone conclusion, they will set their sights on eliminating age of consent laws. Mark my words.
