Kevin Clash -- the former voice of Elmo -- used alcohol as a precursor to oral sex with an underage boy ... this according to a new lawsuit that has just been filed by a THIRD accuser.

According to the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Manhattan and obtained by TMZ, the alleged victim met Clash on a gay phone chat line when he was 16 and Clash was approximately 40.

The accuser -- now 28 -- says he was in NYC pursuing modeling opportunities when Clash invited him to his swanky NYC apartment, which was strewn with Elmo dolls and photos of Elmo with famous people, including Beyonce and Tyra Banks

During the encounter, the accuser -- who refers to himself as John Doe -- claims Clash plied him with alcohol and "groomed him," and then engaged in sexual contact that included "oral sex and digital penetration of John's anus."

The accuser says Clash stayed in touch with him after the sexual encounter, although no further sexual contact occurred until he became an adult.

The accuser is suing for unspecified damages.

As you know, Clash resigned from Sesame Street hours after the second accuser filed suit.

Where did he get that nose? It looks like one of those that come with a mustache and glasses.

Awesome     

And then there's this... If he didn't want it the first time, why did he let him back around and have sexual encounters as an adult? I think it's hard to sue someone for a crime when you go back to it. No matter what age you are then no now.

We should just start referring this as the "Tiger Effect". The smell of money brings them all out.

Prostitutes, gay phone chat lines and who know what else makes for great character witnesses. For both the "accusers" and "victims"

It feels like a money grab because everyone is demanding money.
Notice how the victims of the Priest abuse and Jerry Sandusky wanted real justice, jail time, punishment, for the predator to be removed from society. Only after went after the deep pockets to make sure they learned their lesson.

What are these guys asking for money. Money will make this pain that they did not know existed until the 1st accuser go away.

If Kevin Clash is guilty, then he deserves to be tried in a criminal trial.

Funny how non of the accusers are demanding that justice.

Wow, tmz is playing smear the queer again. They are so pissed big bird made their dude Romney lose the election that they are going after Elmo. And what's with that 70 year old dude in the tight t shirt who hosts the tmz t.v. Show? What is he hiding? Hmmm, lets speculate and ruin his completely useless carrer.

Wait a second, TMZ reported that Clash was now 45 in the story about the 2nd accuser. How could he be 40 12 years ago if he is 45 now? I am sensing a number of inconsistencies between all of the stories.
