The man who accused Kevin Clash (Elmo) of underage sexual conduct has RECANTED. His lawyer now says it was "adult consensual relationship."
Kevin Clash statement: "I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further."
Now: will every media outlet that wrote long stories about Elmo yesterday write equally long stories today?

Is this to be the new de-facto standard for people involved in children's entertainment?
Sounds like a check with a lot of zeros was written.
YES!! In Democratville, this is not just Acceptable, it is GREAT!!!<P.Pretty sure that the BOY got a BOATLOAD of MONEY to Recant!!<P.I’ll NEVER look at ELMO the sme way!! Who would?? YUK.
And it's your money!
Wonder how much the payoff was.
Elmo is homo?
In the immortal words of John McClaine, “Welcome to the party, pal!”
< puke >
Well, he just loves children!!!
Hey ... Sesame Street is, IMO, the vanguard into children's minds and indoctrinating the social and life structure(s) that promote the behavior you've been accused of.
The request for a long article is not expected to be honored.
My kids were never allowed to watch Sesame Street.
The kid was 17 so that makes Elmo being a pervert chicken hawk SOB just dandy.
Wonder when the next kid who wasn’t 17 will appear.
> Elmo is homo?
Sort of. He’s a homo pedofile.
Who did Big Bird rape? Are Bert and Ernie gay? Does Cookie Monster like Girl Scout cookies or does he have a thing for little girls that sell cookies? “ENQUIRING” MINDS WANT TO KNOW!
It's just "another kind of love".Haven't you been paying attention?
The idea that there’s a magic age at which immoral sexual activity becomes moral sexual activity fails every test of reason ... but the culture keeps pretending it’s true, because immoral sexual activity is very, very popular.
Why worry FRiend? In our new & enlightened Obama era, OUR money is THEIR money!
There has to be a legal line. After all, adults are free to do whatever they wish with whomever they wish. But we should not pretend that it is a moral distinction.
No wonder the Obama campaign wanted to be linked with Sesame Street.
Maybe NAMBLA members just helped the accuser understand the grooming he was subjected to is “OK and natural”.
You could, but be prepared to wait a couple of years to hear anything. I’ve done this drill with government agencies, and they delay the process just as long as possible. With Sesame Street you have a public/private entity that falls under the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which also receives public/private funding. Your FOIA would have to go to CPB first, then on to the Children’s Television Workshop (CTW) that produces the show.
Also, don’t be surprised if the pervert in this case “works” for one of the private divisions of CTW. If that’s not the case now, it will be very, very shortly.
Elmo knows how to cover his a**. Be interesting to know how much CTW collects off licensed Elmo merchandise each year. Someone made the determination that Elmo was too valuable, and a check was written. Wouldn’t be surprised to discover that the man “behind” Elmo’s voice has a Jimmy Savile-like history stretching back many years. The BBC kept Savile’s fondness for young girls secret for decades because he was too “important” for the brand.
Compare that to the public lynching of David Petraeus. True, Petraeus created his own mess, but it’s amazing that the “Elmo” story got virtually no public traction, since CTW (and its performers) are liberal icons.
A legal line that fails all the tests of reason is worse than useless: it is in itself morally corrupting. When we say that, for example, a 14-year-old girl is incapable of giving consent to sex ... unless her sex partner is also 14, and also, she's a competent adult when she wants an abortion, but she's not a competent adult if she wants a Sudafed ... then the obvious message is that the whole concept of "a minor" is simply a legal pretense.
"Who can, may," and everyone is available for sex with anyone.
Elmo books toys and. videos should be thrown in bonfires nationwide ala Beatles records were in the Sixties
Show the left how much we loathe their “culture”
Or, he got a late night visit from Big Bird.
Must-have toy for Christmas 2012: Tickle Me Homo
We live in a sick, sick society.
It does put things in perspective.
Sounds like the Gerry Studds and the Page Boy show revisited. Is there a wedding in the offing?
Or woke up next to the severed head of Snuffleupagus.
He would eat dinner at their house, perform their sacraments, charm the parents and take the boys under his wing.
He was so close to the families, they stupidly didn't question when he wanted to take the boy on vacation sometime after his 17th birthday.
While in some far off place, like Hawaii, he would get them drunk and molest them. By this time, the boys would be so utterly confused, they wouldn't know how to react. Some of them continued to have sex with him for a few years, some of them turned gay, some turned suicidal.
None of them ever pressed charges, because there was no official crime committed on these 17-year-olds.
He's still out there.
Is that a joke?
“It looks like Kevin Clash’s defense to the accusation that he was a 45-year-old man having sex with a 16-year-old boy by saying he was a 46-year-old man having sex with a 17-year-old boy has been verified by the accuser.
Is this to be the new de-facto standard for people involved in children’s entertainment?”
Well, it’s LEGAL.... :(
This story has been brought to you by the number 1...and the number 0....and the number 0....and the number 0....and the number 0....
Face it, with the job description being for an adult male to have his hand inserted into puppet rectum 40 hours per week, you are just going to attract a certain group of people.
Just because somebody is evil does not mean he can't be smart.
So, the question is, when did Kevin Clash start grooming this seventeen-year-old?
People trust their children to the Children's Television Workshop. Both on the set and in the audience. How many children are "in the pipe", being groomed and prepared for their seventeenth birthday?
Queers can not be trusted around children. Any parent allowing him access to their (male) child is guilty of child abuse.
Yeah ... and Oedipus Rex just LOOOOVED his mother.
Sesame St6reet is a gathering place for recruiting homos? Who woulda thunk?
Ain’t it a wonder how it went from BIIIIG SCANDAL to No Problem?
Ill NEVER look at ELMO the sme way!! Who would?? YUK.
I don’t even want to think about the Tickle-Me Elmo doll....
Now everybody knows why (and how) Elmo wanted to be tickled... hoo boy.
I believe he was the voice-over. I do not know who the puppeteer(s) was or were.
One could wish that this would be the end of the Children’s Television Workshop, but that cannot be allowed to happen.
So, instead, we will just normalize the predatory practices of Chickenhawks, and accept them as part of life’s rich pageant.
You’d think this would have gotten the church authorities’ attention, if the Roman Catholic church, as they would still consider this living in sin.
Ya got it, and to think that Mitt Romney wanted to throw him, with Big Bird, out in the private cold!
Nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars and one cookie.
Nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars and one cookie.
One million dollars and one cookie...
No joke...You can probably google it....The proposal was within the last couple of years...and probably also before that. One of those you just keep trying until you win....like gay marriage.
So, instead, we will just normalize the predatory practices of Chickenhawks, and accept them as part of lifes rich pageant.
Yes, that is their goal. And they are well on their well.
You have to give the perverts credit for their advertising prowess. Here in Maryland, homosexual “marriage” was just approved by the electorate. Now, most of them are not perverts, but they just wanted to be “fair”, which is the argument that the sodomist lobby used.
Unfortunately, included in the legions of “decent” people who just wanted to be “fair” to the perverts are my children, the parents of my 3 grandsons. They are clueless about the ultimate goal of the depraved, and they just don’t see the agenda of pansexualism that will come to fruition after all of this incrementalism. God help us all...
