Elmo Puppeteer On Leave Following Child Molestation Accusations

Tyler Durden's picture




 

First the BBC, then CIA, then Lockheed... and now Elmo!? AP reports, that: "The puppeteer who performs as Elmo on "Sesame Street" is taking a leave of absence from the popular kids' show in the wake of allegations that he had a relationship with a 16-year-old boy. Sesame Workshop said puppeteer Kevin Clash denies the charges, which were first made in June by the alleged partner, who by then was 23. "We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action," Sesame Workshop said in a statement issued Monday. "We met with the accuser twice and had repeated communications with him. We met with Kevin, who denied the accusation."" And yes, it appears that even for those who have their hand up Elmo all day long, nothing is sacred any more. The silver lining: Kevin Clash was not scheduled to testify on Benghazi.

From AP:

The organization said its investigation found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated. But it said Clash exercised "poor judgment" and was disciplined for violating company policy regarding Internet usage. It offered no details.

 

"I had a relationship with (the accuser)," Clash told TMZ. "It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not."

 

At his request, Clash has been granted a leave of absence in order to "protect his reputation," Sesame Workshop said.

 

No further explanation was provided, nor was the duration of his leave specified.

 

"Elmo is bigger than any one person and will continue to be an integral part of 'Sesame Street' to engage, educate and inspire children around the world, as it has for 40 years," Sesame Workshop said in its statement.

 

"Sesame Street" is currently in production, but other puppeteers are prepared to fill in for Clash during his absence, according to a person close to the show who spoke on condition of anonymity because that person was not authorized to publicly discuss details about the show's production.

 

"Elmo will still be a part of the shows being produced," that person said.

If nothing else, this latest episode of America being unable to hold it in its pants (potentially illegally) certainly gives "Big Bird" (whose funding is now safe) a very different context...

Elmo expected alleged routine prostate exams from Tom Stolper of Goldman Sachs or various JP Morgan analysts, but even Elmo grew skeptical of daily anal examinations by Kevin Clash, who unlike employees of Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, The New York Branch of the Federal Reserve, or editorialists for The New York Times, is not licensed to commit sodomy.

 

Elmo will never fall for the "look, it's Mr. Noodle's brother, Mr. Noodle," or the "we feel GroupOn offers compelling value at what equals its IPO-day intraday low" scam again.

You didn't molest that!

In candy factories they tell the workers they can eat as much of the product as they want because they know they will quickly tire of eating so many sweets.

Too bad that doesn't work with child molestors.  I guess Sandusky is getting a room mate.

Mon, 11/12/2012 - 13:24 | 2973076 Tyler Durden

That's what your Goldman360 is for (who are axed both to buy and sell). But since you are too lazy to pull it up, here it is:

Beazer Homes reported 4QFY12 EPS of $(2.82) vs. our and consensus estimates of ($1.24) and (1.82), respectively. Adjusted for debt extinguishment charges of $42.4mn, EPS was $(1.02).

 

Overall: Results were positive on sales, EPS and margins, but below expectations on orders. Given that Beazer is in the midst of an operational turnaround, the margin out performance (which also aided the EPS beat) is encouraging.

 

Orders: Orders at 1,110 (+13 y/y) were below our and consensus estimates of +49% y/y and +22% y/y, as sequential reduction in community count and less than anticipated absorption likely led to the shortfall from consensus expectations.

 

Margins: Margins of 11.6% were better than our and consensus estimates of 10.2% and 10.6%, respectively.

 

We expect shares to perform inline with the group given the margin beat and orders miss. We maintain our Neutral rating.

And now you know everything there is to know about Beazer, and the housing market, which is perfectly self-sustaining, unsupported by foreclosure stuffing, and/or $40 billion in MBS purchases every month.

In other news, feel free to continue "analyzing" a perfectly broken and manipulated market. Also, never, ever flip coins and buy stocks.

The US prints dollars, spends those dollars to buy oil from OPEC countries, who are supposed to use their surplus profits to buy US debt. If these OPEC countries are now buying gold with their excess dollars then their dollars are not going into US debt, so the Fed has to vacuum up this portion of US debt purchases in addtion to its buying to keep rates down and give give the appearance of US debt as a safe haven. With the OPEC dollars going into gold and other currencies (China Russia currency swaps) how will we be able to tell the rate at which dollars are begining to flood (dumped) into the market instead of US debt. As the flow increases would this be the primary signal that the dollar has entered the final phase and is begining its plummet to Zimbabwe land?

Bah.  If the boy was 16, that's hardly "child molestation." 

That's more a rape (or possibly statutory rape) scenario.

In Hawaii the legal consent age is 14; if the dude was 16; I would say, seriously; it's one of those ridiculous made-up government laws. A 16 year old is old enough to decide if he likes something or not; the "law" just provides an opportunity to play "victim" and get free publicity; both disturbingly popular elements in our degenerate "culture".

"Child molestation" is a horrible thing, and it's really irresponsible to throw the word around lightly.  This whole "article" is just click-bait.

I see very little reason for statutory rape legislation, but it's pretty popular nationwide.  The age of consent varies a good bit from state to state.  In NYS it's 17.

this pedophilia fever looks like sexual derivatives play; all concentrated in specialised professions alike the financial derivatives scam : priesthood, media barons, politicians.

Obviously to appeal to young adolescents you have to be media merchant and your image impeccable; or man of god & state.

Innocence is bliss as they say, until it hits you like Jaws.

Muppet or not, only solution for any sexual predator is death upon conviction.

Every state in the country must consider:

In times of economic hardship, consider any and all revenue streams.

Build a gallows.

Sell television rights...pay per view or commercial broadcast revenue.

Ideal place/time  to carry out said execution is on Saturday, late morning, in any public square.  (Draws a lot more people)

Hang 'em high for all to see!

Bring the family!

16 is the age of consent in many states and countries - and was the age at which most females were married (if not earlier) through most of post-classical European history and elsewhere in the same time period, and the age difference was often 20, 30, or even 40 years. 

 I find it doubtful that TMZ has a problem with homosexuality (the ZH crowd is a different and more reactionary matter but I pay such ironically Christian bigotry no mind) so what exactly is the big motherfucking deal here?

Doesn't appear that it's being made out to  be a "big deal" here to me. Just another story. However it appears that "thou dost protest too much" and are making some rather unrealistic assumptions based on the rather thin facts that are presented. Get hold of yourself man.......or whatever flavor you happen to be. I don't think most of us care really. I know I don't.
