Third accuser says Kevin Clash gave him alcohol




If you thought the Kevin Clash news would stop just because he resigned from Sesame Street, think again. A third accuser has come forward, saying the Elmo puppeteer got him drunk before oral sex when the alleged victim was only 16.

A lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says the John Doe, now 28, met Clash on a gay phone chat line and invited the boy over to his apartment. There, the accuser says, Clash gave him alcohol, "groomed him" and then proceeded to make sexual contact, TMZ reports. The accuser says Clash continued to talk to the 16-year-old, but never had further sexual contact until he was an adult.

The plaintiff is suing Clash for unspecified damages, the lawsuit says. The rest of the world is suing for unspecified loss of childhood innocence.
