'Elmo' puppeteer Kevin Clash resigns as second man files lawsuit over new underage sex allegations
NY Daily News ^ | 11/20/12 | PHILIP CAULFIELD

Posted on 11/20/2012 10:05:49 AM PST by jimbo123

A second man has come forward saying he had sex with Kevin Clash, the voice of “Sesame Street” character Elmo, when the accuser was a teenage minor, according to a report.

-snip-

Cecil Singleton, who is now in his 30s, said he and Clash hooked up on a gay phone sex line in 1993 when he was 15 and the muppeteer was 32, according to a new $5 million lawsuit reported by TMZ.

Singleton said Clash “trolled” phone sex lines to meet boys and wooed him with gifts of cash and fancy dinners, the lawsuit said, according to TMZ.

Clash was “preying on teenage boys to satisfy his depraved sexual interests" while at the same time working as the voice behind the beloved character on the landmark PBS children's show, the lawsuit said.

Ok, he trolls for them at 15, but he spends his days attracting 2 and 3 year olds. Who is to say that with an opportunity he wouldn’t molest a very young child? He’d know how to groom them.

Sick.

WTH is a 15 year old doing on a gay phone sex line?

I knew a guy, who has now passed away, that was a booking agent for a lot of people who did advertisements. He knew all sorts of folks and sometimes placed people with PBS for various programs. Back when “Tickle Me Elmo” was first introduced this guy told me, “if they knew what the people who do SS were like they’d be burning the studio with them in it instead of buying their toys”.

I laughed and thought he was talking about how liberal they all were so I didn’t pursue it. Now I wonder if he had something other than their politics in mind.

Ever since the Elmo stories starting coming out, I can't help but to think of the weird coincidence of one of Elmo's guest appearances from way back in the day:

If in fact the allegations are true death would be an appropriate punishment.

"If in fact the allegations are true death would be an appropriate punishment."

That's a big "if"? I've got no sympathy for anyone involved in this sordid little drama but how can someone defend themselves against 18 year old allegations? The statute of limitations in all these types of cases should expire 2 years after the alleged victim turns 18.

Michael Jackson all over again.

When you pay off victims of your pedophilia to drop their allegations... it only causes more victims to come forward for their payday.

I’m guessing Mr Clash emptied out his 401K in hopes that it’d be just one punk in line. At this point, there probably won’t be much to retire on.

I’ve always suspected The Count. He’s purple and goes around in a gaudy pimp cape.

In retrospect, Elmo’s creepy weird high-pitched voice saying “Elmo loves you” should have been a red flag that he was a pervert.

People need to shut off this stupid show.

Now we know why victim number one is recanting his recantation after being paid a paltry $120,000 to STFU: he knows he sold out way to cheaply and wants more money.

Oh my, Jeff Smith, the frugal gourmet. I used to love his show prior to finding out he was a pervert. Not surprised by the Elmo connection.

They probably gave him the number in his “health” class at school and told him it was perfectly normal.

Same here. I really enjoyed the Frugal Gourmet when I was a kid. Hated to find out he was such a creep in real life. The Smoking Gun has the actual complaint filed against him by his victims, and man is it ugly. Not only is Smith named, but his wife was, too. The attorneys claimed they had evidence she used her position in his business to pay “hush money” on several occasions, and knowingly turned a blind eye to what Jeff was doing.

IIRC, there may also have been an even darker accusation: that she may have even been Smith’s “procurer”, purposely hiring young men for the kitchen that would appeal to her husband. Not sure about that one, though.

Or, more realistically, he was iterating to you that the 'politics', and 'the other stuff' were inextricably intertwined...

Amazing how none of the media outlets will use the term “pedophile” in association with Mr Clash isn’t it? It always “inappropriate” or “underage”, but not pedophile. They’re already pushing the language to support their child molesting friends.

Probably all the time, just like perverted straights fantasizing about "breaking in" young virgins; or muzzies dreaming of young goats.
