By Dru Sefton

Here is a link to the lawsuit filed today by Cecil Singleton, alleging that Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash coerced him into sexual encounters when Singleton was underage. Singleton is seeking more than $5 million in damages.

In the wake of the second such accusation against him, Clash resigned today, “with a heavy heart,” from his role as Elmo on Sesame Street. Sesame Workshop accepted his resignation, adding that it is “a sad day for Sesame Street.”
