Clash Faces Allegations From Second Accuser

TMZ reported a lawsuit filed by a second man accuses Clash of having underage sex with him.

As news spread Tuesday of puppeteer Kevin Clash's resignation from Sesame Street, the website TMZ reported that the resignation comes after the filing of a lawsuit against Clash by a second accuser.

TMZ reported that Cecil Singleton, the accuser named in the suit, alleges that Clash had a sexual relationship with him in 2003.

Singleton, now 24, according to the website, claims that he met Clash on a gay phone chat line, and also said that Clash "trolled" such phone chat rooms "to meet and have sex with underage boys."

Singleton is demanding more than $5 million in his lawsuit against Clash, according to TMZ.

Clash, 52, is a Turner Station native and a 1979 graduate of Dundalk High School.

This is just ridiculous. Leave the poor man alone. I'm sure this one allegation will be taken back just like the first one was, but it's already too late. Elmo will never be the same without him.

I wonder if this is just the beginning of Dundalk getting its own Jerry Sandusky.

And people who say that are right, at least in so far as being any more of a danger to children than heterosexuals are.

Pedophiles come in all shapes and sizes, heterosexual and homosexual. Being homosexual does not make you any more likely to abuse children. In fact, girl victims of men greatly outnumber boy victims of men. Not that it doesn't occur with women perpetrators but the common factor of most assailants is that they are men.

People also say others are remarkably ignorant.

People also say that stupidity is a danger to common sense...

Hetero or home, it matters not when a youngster is diminished in this way. Forming minds in youth should be left alone to make their own determination about their life including sexual orientation, sexual activity, spiritual matters, etc. And there are laws that happen to agree with my assertion. By the way all of you who were so quick and willing to forgive this man and make the original victim out to be the guilty one, you now see the way this is going. Not to say 'I told you so' but this type behavior is very infectious so this may only be the tip of the proverbial iceberg. I repeat, "where there's smoke, there's fire". This individual doesn't need to be in a setting with children until at least this is settled and maybe forever. And don't tell me you'd want one of your children to experience something like this. That is just plain goofy thinking. Defending this man at this point is ludicrous.
