2nd lawsuit claims Clash had sex with a minor

A second lawsuit has been filed accusing Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who provided the voice of Elmo on "Sesame Street," of engaging in a sexual relationship with a minor.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in New York, a Florida man referred to as John Doe says Clash lured him into a sexual relationship in 2000, when the then-16-year-old came to the New York area from Florida to pursue modeling opportunities.

Clash's lawyer said the federal cases against his client are without merit.

    And i would suggest you keep the suit. That could explain why he looked at you funny.

    If you walk away with no suit, he may look at you funny again.
