It was only a matter of time before the whole Elmo sex scandal thing had a Florida connection. Because a gay sex puppet scandal ain't a gay sex puppet scandal until the Sunshine State gets involved, dammit!
A Florida man identified only as "John" filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan against Kevin Clash, the former Sesame Street puppeteer who voiced Elmo.
Clash, 52, had resigned from the popular children's television show after 30 years following two separate allegations of sex with a minor.
Now the third accuser is also alleging that he and Clash engaged in oral sex and other sex acts when "John" was only 16 years old.
The suit seeks at least $75,000 in damages.More »
