Kevin Clash - Sesame Street's Kevin Clash Accused of Fourth Case of Sexual Abuse

Kevin Clash, most known for voicing Sesame Street’s iconic Elmo, has been accused of another instance of sexual abuse of a minor.

This time the accuser, who has chosen to remain anonymous and is only quoted as John Doe in court proceedings, has stated that the abuse occurred on numerous occasions, when he was 16 or 17 and Clash was in his mid-thirties. Doe recounts that the Sesame Street actor paid for him to fly to NYC, as well as giving him a place to stay and some money. The man’s attorney, Jeff Herman, was quoted by TMZ as saying that according the lawsuit, Kevin Clash knowingly paid to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of satisfying his sexual interests. Doe is the fourth person to come forward with accusations against Clash. The actor resigned from the job as Elmo’s puppeteer after the second accuser, Cecil Singleton, came forth, accusing him of sexual abuse when he was 15. /p>

Sesame Street has yet to address the allegations, but a company spokesperson said for USA Today "Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin's personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street. This is a sad day for Sesame Street.” Surely, it is a sad day for everyone who has grown up with the iconic voice of Elmo.
