More details in the case of Cecil Singleton, who has become the second man in as many weeks to allege an underage sexual relationship with Sesame Street's Kevin Clash. The longtime voice and puppeteer behind the popular character "Elmo" abruptly resigned today after Singleton filed a federal lawsuit.
The sexual relationship began when he was only 15-years-old and involved "groping, masturbation [and] intense kissing," said Singleton at a news conference this afternoon. The relationship progressed to sexual intercourse after he "was an adult," adds Singleton.

Clash was first accused last week by 24-year-old Sheldon Stephens, who later recanted his allegations. Stephens announced yesterday that the claims of underage sex were indeed true and he was pressured into a financial settlement.
