Another man is suing Kevin Clash, 52, accusing him of sexual abuse.

In federal documents filed in New York on Tuesday, reports AP, Kevin Kiadii, 25, says he was 16 when he met the puppeteer who was the voice of Sesame Street’s Elmo during an online chat.

Clash sent a car from Manhattan to Brooklyn for Kiadii. “Upon his arrival, Kevin Clash gave Kiadii alcohol and groomed him with attention and affection,” the lawsuit says, reports The Baltimore Sun.

The sex was consensual, the lawsuit says, but “as a 16-year-old child, Kiadii was not emotionally or psychologically prepared for a sexual relationship with a grown man in his forties.” The age of consent in New York is 17.

Miami attorney Jeff Herman represents Kiadii and four other people who filed similar lawsuits. He acknowledges his clients were compliant but says Clash took advantage of them by playing father to them, reports AP.

Clash resigned from Sesame Street in November. He has denied any wrongdoing. The latest lawsuit seeks unspecified damages
Mia’s thoughts- TICKLE ME ELMO now because of this disgusting individual who has broken the trust given to him by a world of children that age old phrase will forever be tained from now on it brings pictures of children in terror .

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.

  1. Clash, Jerry Sandusky, Britain’s Jimmy Savile show that accused pedohiles like Sylvain Kustyan must be gotten off the streets and out of the harm’s way of our children ASAP. The recidivism rate of pedophiles is nearly 100%. The 6′ 7″ Kustyan, a French native, middle-school teacher and author of childrens’ textbooks has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and 1st Degree Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy. Unfortunately, upon learning of imminent arrest he fled the US and is currently on the lam.
