And we were so close to never having to hear the words "Elmo sex scandal" again. A second accuser has stepped forward Tuesday, and voice-of-Elmo Kevin Clash has resigned from "Sesame Street."

This follows accusations last week from model Sheldon Stephens, who made a similar charge but recanted his accusation — and just yesterday recanted his recantation. In a lawsuit, Singleton is asking for more than $5 million. As Sesame Workshop said in a release announcing Clash's departure, "It's a sad day on Sesame Street." [Source]
