Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash sued over new underage sex allegation (THIRD accuser)
MSN.com ^ | November 27, 2012

Posted on 11/27/2012 11:58:39 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

"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."

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?

“Tickle-Me-Elmo”, as a product name, narrowly beat the second place suggestion
“Bugger-Me-Elmo”

What's interesting is that it was probably Romney's notice of funding Big Bird that provoked Dude No. 1 to come forward. I guess he got paid off because he changed his story.

Then there's No. 2 & 3.....

Elmo's "master" probably wishes that Big Bird was never born.

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.

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.

I find both Sesame street and Dr seuss an insult to human intelligence. It's called "dumbing down".

Mr. Rogers is probably my all time favorite for learning and ethics. And he was right....what was available for children was awful. Too bad there are no Mr. Rogers for today.

Then we had the good stuff for the oldsters...The Fonz, The Brady bunch etc....except when we found out what kind of people some of them really were, it was sure a disappointment.

An all time favorite....Lassie.

I think #1 ended up refusing the payment agreement and retraction when #2 came out, right before he signed on the dotted line. Maybe he had been convenced that it was just a misunderstanding on his part. Then another victim coming out showed him it wasn’t.

You’d think the producers at Sesame Street would have known better than to allow a homosexual to work with children.

The organizations that know that are punished for acting on that knowledge. Just ask the Boys Scouts of America.

"Third accuser" didn't remind you of Herman Cain and the GOP primary? I wonder why.

As then, as now, bring me someone who is a current or recent victim, not one from nineteen years down the road or even a dozen years ago. Bring documentation. Show the evidence.

Each of these sudden accusers are in their mid-20s or beyond, with dollar signs in their eyes via civil suits.

We do service to justice by being skeptical whether the accused is the Duke LAX team, George Zimmerman, Herman Cain or the (former) voice of Elmo.

"He's weird and accused of heinous, perverse things so he must be guilty" is how the Left reacts. Sorry but I remember local cases like the infamous Dale Akiki and McMartin Pre-School trials too well.

So do I and as I noted it reminded me of the accusers not in any fact or fiction guilt or innocent. As for Cain, I did not put in the michael jackson accusers or Lance Armstrong’s.

Being critical of something “not” said is silly.

Big Bird had to have known, Cookie Monster had to have known, every dummie at Sesamie Street had to have known about these indiscretions of Elmo. How long will it be before they are fired for covering up for him???

Sesamie Street, soon to be known as Sodomy Street, is a very rich target.

My question is: If this puppeteer actually did these things, why is it only a matter of paying off the victims? Shouldn't there be some kind of criminal investigation?

Either way, will Sesame Street pay the men off, or the taxpayers who fund PBS?

Kevin Clash -- these reports are so unfair. He is totally, totally innocent and serves our support.
Michael Jackson -- these reports are so unfair. He is totally, totally innocent and serves our support.
Joe Paterno -- Hanging is too good for him. The most evil man to ever walk the earth.

Funny how the Left idolizes actual child molesters and hates people who do not molest children.

Yeah, what’s worse is that Michael Jackson had so many health, and psychological issues it wasn’t even funny. I wouldn’t want to get close to a guy who grabbed his own crotch in a dance, much less also was anorexic and had an obsession with his face needing to get butchered, and then a prescription painkiller addiction, and more. Frankly, couldn’t someone offer him some serious help at some point? I mean, wouldn’t doing some of the stuff he did be harmful to you? Self-Destructive?
