"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."

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?
And the latest statement condemning this sick behavior from tax payer funded PBS is.......
