Man who accused Elmo puppeteer of teen sex recants

BY FRAZIER MOORE, AP TELEVISION WRITER

NEW YORK -- A man who accused Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash of having sex with him when he was a teenage boy has recanted his story.

In a quick turnabout, the man on Tuesday described his sexual relationship with Clash as adult and consensual.

Clash responded with a statement of his own, saying he is "relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest." He had no further comment.

The man, who has not identified himself, released his statement through the Harrisburg, Pa., law firm Andreozzi & Associates.

Sesame Workshop, which produces "Sesame Street" in New York, soon followed by saying, "We are happy that Kevin can move on from this unfortunate episode."

I think the news is huge. But all the times such news come to attach public persons. Why is it so, and why people don't like to have a normal life... and seeing eachother its own ship..

It's so strange when such news appear. I think its really hard to know the past of a man, especially when they have such inclinations.
