Posted on 11/12/2012 1:18:12 AM PST by maggief
Kevin Clash -- the man known as the voice of Elmo -- has taken a leave of absence from Sesame Street in the wake of allegations he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy, TMZ has learned ... allegations Clash adamantly denies.
We've learned ... Sesame Workshop lawyers recently met with a 23-year-old man who claims he and Clash began a sexual relationship 7 years ago ... when he was 16 and Clash was 45.
Clash has acknowledged to TMZ he had a relationship with the young man -- but insists it only took place AFTER the accuser was an adult.
Sesame Workshop honchos tell TMZ ... "In June of this year, Sesame Workshop received a communication from a young man who alleged that he had a relationship with Kevin Clash beginning when he was 16-years-old. This was a personal relationship, unrelated to the workplace. We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action."
Sesame Workshop officials acknowledge to TMZ they met with the accuser twice and had a number of other communications with him.
Sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell TMZ ... after the accuser's initial meeting with Sesame Street, the accuser felt Sesame Workshop's lawyers were trying to muzzle him ... so he lawyered up with Andreozzi and Associates -- the firm that represented one of the victims in the Jerry Sandusky child rape case.

Mr. Noodle died of AIDS.
Hope this is shown to be false but how? No way to disprove it.
Big Bird is next!
Clash meets with “make a wish” kids and seems like a nice guy from the documentary on him. Hope it’s untrue. His daughter is college age.
Yeah. Let’s keep funding these guys. Just in time for Christmas, “Perverted Elmo”
I don’t know if it is true or not that the accuser was underage at the time, but Clash admits there was a relationship.
FWIW, I’m reminded that Sandusky was very active in children’s charities.
Romney was right on government funding for Big Bird!
(and it’s no wonder the Dems are protecting this crowd)
When has anyone ever get caught engaging in underage sex and NOT deny it?
Oh yeah. Sesame street. We know all about these birds.
Yes, the Being Elmo documentary was very good. Oh well.
I told you.
Our tax dollars at work.
Thought about getting an Elmo doll for my niece. Pass on that.
Oh well, the American Girl dolls aren’t tainted by pervs???
I guess the dems are high fiving each other for having saved Elmo.
It was the influence of Evil Bert!
Wow...Elmo is a pedophile. Why am I not surprised?
Next, Cookie Monster is busted for armed robbery of a Mrs. Field’s shop
Do you suppose Elmo will get his own rallies for Dem candidates now, much like Sandra Fluke?
First General Petraeus, then Christopher E. Kubasik and now Elmo. What is it with this administration?
“Romney was right on government funding for Big Bird!”
Once parents find out about elmo, PBS will need the govt money to survive.
I had NO idea the voice of ELMO was a BLACK ADULT MALE until a few years ago....geesh.
I’ve always kind of assumed that anyone involved in children’s entertainment is probably some kind of pervert.
Clash’s defense to the accusation of being a 45 year old man sexually involved with a 16 year old boy is to insist that he was a 46 year old man sexually involved with a 17 year old boy.
I didn’t let my children watch Sesame Street. Mostly I thought it was stupid. And I didn’t let them watch Mr. Rogers because he was a wimp.
We Want You!
We Want You!
We Want You For A New Recruit!
The unspoken truth is that the molestation of underage boys is an important part of the life cycle of the gay community. They cannot reproduce, so they must recruit.
Surveys of homosexual men indicate that most have been molested by adult men when they were children. However, the rate of molestation by adult men in the adult male heterosexual community is quite low.
There are only two possible explanations for this difference in rates of previous childhood molestation between the homosexual and heterosexual community. Either the adult molesters somehow determined which children were likely to become homosexual in the future, or the molestation had a direct effect on the sexual identity of the children who were molested.
“What is it with this administration?”
They’re a cabal of bonesmokers.
John like Elmo
John give Elmo money
No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law;
and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money
shall be published from time to time.
Elmo "lol" at Article. I. Section. 9.
There is no Cookie Monster anymore. Michelle Obama had them change him. He is now Veggie Monster.
(I wish I was kidding)
OTOH, I have never heard any ill said of Fred Rogers.
Homo anal sex = good
Homo anal sex with a 16 year old = bad
What a world
Not a surprise. Mad TV and You Tube viewers have known for some time that Elmo is seriously disturbed:
“In June of this year, Sesame Workshop received a communication from a young man who alleged that he had a relationship with Kevin Clash.....We....took immediate action.”
Translation - they waited 5 months until after the million muppet march, election, etc.
Technically Jerry Sandusky denied it too. He was asked outright by Bob Costas and he said "I didn't go seeking every young person for sexual needs that I helped." Not every one, huh? Okay. He also confirmed he did in fact do some of the things they said, but just innocent stuff like showers with young boys and "horseplay" such as touching their bodies. You know, normal stuff every man does with kids. Right.
Like I said, technically he denied it. But this has to take the award for worst denial ever!
There is Cookie Monster. Cookie Monster was given the “Cookie Touch”. It was a cheap play on the “King Midas” touch. That was made just this year.
I did see the veggie monster episode. My daughter who love Sesame Street and Elmo, got bored with that and started playing with her dolls.
Yep. And Bart Simpson is a little old white lady, and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob is voiced by the Kurgan from Highlander.
Is that PeeWee Herman?
If so, he never harmed anyone. He was masturbating in a porn theater on his own time. Extremely weird, I never been to one and I know I never will. However, I would imagine that is what happens in there.
I don’t think we could put him into the same category as Kevin Class if this accusation is true.
To the perverts there is no “under age”.
Perverted, even. I never said he had physically harmed anyone. I said he's a creep. He is. That's all; please don't read more into it than that.
Yeah he (PeeWee) is a creep. Shouldn’t be entertaining children. One interesting thing about him, he refused to advertise for candy or cereal when he was in his heyday, because he believed it promoted unhealthy eating.
I agree, both as to Paul Reubens the Wanker, and as to the Pee Wee show itself.
Interesting about the refusal to advertise. Fred Rogers also refused to be involved in advertising on the grounds that childrens' television was too commercialized. I am inclined to agree. Sesame Street, B'harnei and Fiends, and other PBS properties are thoroughly and disgustingly commercialized.
