    A bit late but...E L M and O each appear as one of the first four letters of molestation.

    What's Elmo's last name?

    A second person has come forward claiming an underage relationship with Clash.

    Yeah, it's starting to look like Clash really does have a problem...

    Even if the first accuser wasn't underage, Clash still admitted to having a relationship with a 17-year-old when he was in his 40's. Ew. I'm trying not to assume, but a second accuser makes me doubt that these claims are entirely baseless.

    I'm glad I was more of an Oscar the Grouch fan.

    mods retag this thread "senate" so we can get back to the higher level of discourse that fondle-me elmo deserves

    or just merge with the palestine thread since they're both about people getting ******

    Does this mean there will be less of a focus on Elmo, and maybe a return to the more classic characters and/or new ones?

    Do you actually watch enough Sesame Street for this to matter to you?

    What are the odds of the Right NOT using this as a reason to cut funding for PBS?

    No, I was just curious. You just know kids are gonna start asking questions if Elmo has a reduced capacity after this, and I don't envy the parents who have to have the talk with them about it if it does, like what happened back during the Pee-Wee Herman scandal.

    It's not out of the realm of possiblity for them to try, but the problem is that using THIS particular issue was a reason to cut PBS funding could just as easily hurt them rather than help them. It might help them with their supporters, but with Clash quitting and (at first glance) PBS seemingly doing everything right that other organizations in their same position seemingly failed to do (investigate the first accusation and I presume will investigate the second one as well); you could have just as many people going "Why punish PBS for the actions of one individual?"

    Also focusing on this particular matter in the midst of the fiscal cliff talks would further reinforce the GOP's image of pettiness.
