(Newser) – Much as you might wish it would go away, the Sesame Street sex scandal goes on: Now TMZ has an email from Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash to his accuser, who claims he had a sexual relationship with Clash when he was just 16 and Clash was 45. But the email is from 2010, "well after the accuser turned 18," TMZ notes. The more damning part is that Clash allegedly sent the email from his Sesame Street account.

In it, Clash writes, "I'm sorry that I keep talking about sex with you, its driving me insane. I want you to know that I love you and I will never hurt you. I'm here to protect you and make sure your dreams come true." He also mentions booking a ticket for the accuser to come to New York to "talk about this in person." Clash is currently on leave from his Sesame Street gig.

The more I read about this the more I am certain this is a "hit" allegation. Fuck you puritans who want to make this man a pedophile because he fucked an 18 year old! one of my favorite jokes was... there is a mag called Barely Legal... so if I read it am I almost a pedophile? All those girls in playboy etc are all young and that is why they use them... again lets see where the facts are...

If he said it to the young man when he was of age what's the big deal? Isn't this guy around 23 yrs old?
