Elmo’s world rocked by claim of underage relationship (with an underage male)

While charges and counter-charges were flying in the wake of Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clashs leave of absence from Sesame Street, sources close to those controlling both the iconic childrens character and its multi-million-dollar products told this column Monday it was highly unlikely Clash would ever return as Elmos alter ego.
In fact, unless things suddenly move in Kevins direction right away, and he is proven to be a victim of an ugly smear rather than an adult sexual predator of a minor he is finished in the world of childrens entertainment, said a source close to the situation.
As for Clash, 52, it should be noted that while the usually gregarious Muppet mainstay admits to a relationship with a younger man (now age 23), he vehemently denies it began when the man was 16, as the accuser alleged in communications with Sesame Workshop executives back in June.

Executives knew since June but decided to hold off until after the election. Stop funding PBS now!

Shades of Penn State. Another institution hiding dirty laundry from public view.

“underage relationship” Is that that what they are calling it now?

By creepy coincidence, some years back “Elmo” was a guest on The Frugal Gourmet cooking show in one of the last seasons before Jeff Smith’s own scandals broke.

I want to know what Elmo's role in this is!
Did these events happen during his “tickle me” period?

That’s what I said. It is not a relationship! They are harboring pedophiles. Shut PBS down before they destroy the spirits of any more children.

Tip of the iceberg?
Is there more we don’t know about the whole Sesame operation?

Wouldn’t it be ironic that Sesame St. gets shuts down even after Obambi wins?

Stop funding PBS now? Horrors! Who'd subsidize "Bugger Me Elmo" then? Certainly CTW can't be making any sort of money off the overpriced Sesame Street branded merchandise that infests every toy department of every major retailer.
Yesterday, the Mediacom "news" page that pops up when I log in had a picture of Kevin Clash and the caption did not even mention the homosexual angle. Typical of Mediacom.
(The same Mediacom that used a picture of a WWII German "Tiger I" tank to headline a story about the US Army "not wanting the new Abrams MBT.")

I think underage relationship was coined by the same people who gave us “marriage equality.”
It has been known, by the CIA and FBI, but covered up by the MSM that BIG BIRD has had a longtime affair with the NBC Peacock!
When FOX exposes the full details, feathers will fly!

As a puppeteer, he must have grown tired of the same old hand job.

I’m glad this happened. Elmo and the gang have contributed to democrat brainwashing and forced taxation. Perhaps this will doom for Elmo. Doubtful but I can dream.

Creepy coincidence, or like (demented) minds seeking each other out?

OK; Penn State had to fire Joe Paterno and the university president because of allowing sexual perversion to go unchecked. Fire PBS’s president and take away their federal funding!

Actually that was Mr. Noodle’s brother, late actor Michael Jeter. But your point is made.

I didn’t see that in the article. Has that been documented somewhere? If so..... wow!
PBS, the stated home of a million Democrat puppets.

“as the accuser alleged in communications with Sesame Workshop executives back in June.”
That’s the way I see it.
That was exactly the same time that the Rats were making “Big Bird” an issue.
