Kevin Clash, Elmo Puppeteer, Resigns From ‘Sesame Street’

The longtime voice and puppeteer of Elmo, has resigned in the aftermath that he had an underage sexual relationship.  Sesame Workshop did release a statement:

Sesame Workshop’s mission is to harness the educational power of media to help all children the world over reach their highest potential. Kevin Clash has helped us achieve that mission for 28 years, and none of us, especially Kevin, want anything to divert our attention from our focus on serving as a leading educational organization. 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.

According to nydailynews.com, a second man also filed a lawsuit over new underage allegations.
