Elmo Dead!- Underage Sex Scandal at Sesame Street! (and you thought Bert and Ernie were bad)
Kevin Clash, the longtime voice and puppeteer behind Sesame Street’s Elmo character, has resigned in the aftermath of allegations that he had underage sexual relationships.

Mr. Clash was first accused last week of sexual improprieties by a 24-year-old man who later recanted. That man has remained anonymous.




Production of “Sesame Street” was unaffected by Mr. Clash’s leave of absence and presumably will not be affected by his resignation, either. Mr. Clash had been helping to identify other puppeteers who could play Elmo for some time, and they filled in for him while he was away from work, a Sesame Workshop executive said last week.

But the repetition of claims about underage sex in the same sentence as a beloved children’s character may impact the “Sesame Street” brand in ways that remain to be seen. The years-old allegations are bubbling up at the beginning of the holiday shopping season.

Oh who cares. Kids who love Elmo are too young to understand any of this. My little grandson loves Elmo, and we'll be getting him Elmo stuff for Christmas.

I guess it would just be bad publicity for them to sue the false accuser, plus they wouldn't get anything. Too bad for this guy. If it is true that he never did anything illegal. They will just get a sound-alike voice so he might as well stay.

Clash resigns after another accuser filed a lawsuit.....

"Last week a man accused Clash of having sex with him when he was a teenage boy, a charge Clash denied. A day later, the man recanted his charge. A lawsuit by a second accuser was filed Tuesday, according to attorney Cecil Singleton."

First accuser received $125k to recant accusation....

Coaches, clowns, boy scout leaders, priests, rabbis, pastors, puppeteers, camp counsellors, babysitters, teachers, any profession or volunteer who has access to children has those who choose that profession to be near children.

Please watch out for your children, these predators mask their monstrous ways behind a smiling exterior. Be overly protective of who your children associate with, and go with your gut feeling if something doesn't seem ok,. Even if all the other idiot parents allow their children to associate with these people.

It pays to be cognizant. Even though we are getting used to hearing these kinds of stories, it still sends a sick feeling in my stomach. I mean come on Elmo.

I wonder if this is going to catch media frenzy, or if the media will hide it....
