"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."

Sesame street has always been creepy to me. I’m sure this one pervert is only the tip of the iceberg.
Elmo should replace the “Lions” for Penn State—
I'm afraid it's even worse than that...he sticks his hand up it's little red a$$.
The new toy for X-mas is Butt Hump me Elmo. It’s being test marketed in San Francisco, but may be available world wide soon.
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.
Where there’s one there’s many. It’s the nature of this perversion.
WHO knew WHAT about this fiend WHEN? If PSU is paying the price shouldn’t Sex-with-me Street?
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.
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.
Sesamie Street, soon to be known as Sodomy Street, is a very rich target.
:: Where theres one theres many. ::
They’s like carpenter ants...
Glad I didn't have liquid in my mouth when I read that reply.
Either way, will Sesame Street pay the men off, or the taxpayers who fund PBS?
they make millions off stuff like this:

Elmo the Homo.
