Third man claims he had sex with Kevin Clash when he was 16.
A third man in as many weeks has accused the man behind the voice of "Sesame Street's" Elmo of having sex with him as a teen.
The now 29-year-old accuser says that he and Clash met in a gay online chat room in 2000 where, the man says, Clash identified himself as a 30-year-old man named "Craig."
The man who has filed a lawsuit under the name "John Doe" goes on to say that Clash invited him to his apartment which is when he realized that "Craig" was older than he said he was and that Clash in turn realized that he was still a teen. Regardless, "John Doe" claims that he and Clash engaged in "some sexual activity."
Lawyers for Clash say that the allegations have no merit.
Clash resigned from "Sesame Street" last week amid allegations that he had sex with two other underage boys.
