A day later, the man recanted his charge. A lawsuit by a second accuser was filed Tuesday, according to attorney Cecil Singleton.

A two timing Elmo -- with more to come I'm sure.

Sesame Workshop says, "Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin's personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded tha the can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street. This is a sad day for Sesame Street." (via TMZ)

----------------------

My question is, did any of these contacts happen at Sesame Workshop or were any of the children involved associated with Sesame Workshop?

Just great! I finally perfected my Elmo impersonation and now this. I guess I could start a new YouTube series called Elmo in the Big House.

‘Elmo wants to pick up the soap. Yay!’

A second allegation. First was Sheldon Stephens, second
Cecil Singleton “who claims he met Kevin in a gay phone chat back in ‘93 ... when he was 15 and Clash was 32.”

15 will get him 20?

Sesame St salute to bathrooms brought to you by the letter P and the number 2.

Elmo char may go on I’d think but with a diff puppeteer.
Makes them lots of $$$ (and this is why I don’t want PBS
to get taxpayer money. They don’t need it! Big Bird tastes great with sweet and sour sauce. We’re having China buy our debt but with $6 trillion you get egg roll.)

ONLY and I repeat ONLY a Democrat, liberal, minority pedophile would have his raping of underage boys categorized as a consensual sexual relationships by the MSM including Fox News.

Absolutely disgraceful. I am willing to bet that with the pathology involved and his overwhelming ease of scouting young boys under the guise of a world acclaimed puppeteer that we will see dozens of boys come forward in the next several months with the same story.

In addition I would be willing to bet that this deviancy was not only known by Sesame Street productions(or whatever they call themselves)but that there were other production participants in these “consensual acts”

Obviously, the first one got paid off under the table.

Looks like this one wants to "put everything on the table".

it seems the other MSM stories are all trying to gloss over the fact this is a homosexual attack on a minor.
