"Sesame Street" puppeteer Kevin Clash has been hit with another lawsuit over allegations he carried out a sex act on an underage boy, according to the New York Daily News.
The man behind the beloved character Elmo became embroiled in a sex scandal earlier this month after he was accused of having relations with a 16-year-old male seven years ago, when Clash was 45. The allegations were subsequently recanted, but a second man, Cecil Singleton, claimed he had a sexual phone chat with the star in 1993 when he was only 15, and he sued Clash for $5 million.
The double sex scandal prompted Clash, 52, to leave the show, and now a third man has accused the puppeteer of improper conduct. In the papers, filed at a federal court in New York on Tuesday, the man -- referred to as 'John' in the documents -- claims Clash invited him to his apartment after they had a phone conversation, when the plaintiff was aged 16. John, now 28, alleges Clash plied him with alcohol and "groomed him" before engaging in "sexual contact."

So it’s true? Elmo does like little kids???
With homosexuals, you never just stop at one.
Sorta like a Lay’s potato chip.
$5 million dineros just for a phone chat! Hey, Elmo! Call me!!!
Scarey...A career homo...
homosexuals and sex scandal ,is this why the Dems love Sesame Street
Who’d have thought that a gay guy who plays with little puppets for a living so he could surround himself with kids might be a creep?
Romney was right.
This crap should not be funded by the taxpayers.
Perverts are perverts
They aren’t goin to stop being perverts.
I guess they can also be liberaltarians though
“Tickle-Me-Elmo”, as a product name, narrowly beat the second place suggestion
Then there's No. 2 & 3.....
Elmo's "master" probably wishes that Big Bird was never born.
[ Whod have thought that a gay guy who plays with little puppets for a living so he could surround himself with kids might be a creep? ]
What could go wrong?.....
I always assumed that Elmo’s voice came from a woman like Woody Woodpecker or Bart Simpson. How disturbing that voice comes from a grown man.
This is beginning to remind me the John Travolta gay sex stories earlier this year.
How do we know that he didn’t just openly support Romney? These are the kinds of allegations that would be lodged if he were off the democrat plantation.
I agree, except one might question the "man" part of your statement.
That’s strange. I always thought that homos found love once and that was it! ~sarc. They seem so happy on the cover of JC Penney mags!!
I lived in SF, and this pattern is not so uncommon. Guys are interested in young girls, right? Why would it be any different with guys?
Gays joke about this quite a lot. They consider it almost normal.
