Kevin Clash has been sued by a 4TH accuser ... who claims he also had a sexual relationship with the former voice of Elmo while he was a minor ... TMZ has learned. 

We've learned ... the accuser, who filed the lawsuit in federal court in NY under the name John Doe, claims he first met Clash in Miami Beach in 1995 or 1996 ... while Doe was 16 or 17 and Clash was in his mid '30s. 

Doe claims ... Clash eventually flew him out to NYC and gave him money and a place to stay. During the trip, Doe claims the two had sex on multiple occasions.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Doe claims he's suffered tremendous emotional, mental and psychological damage as a result of the relationship.

TMZ spoke to Doe's attorney, Jeff Herman, who tells us, "According to our lawsuit, Kevin Clash knowingly paid to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of satisfying his sexual interests."

Of Clash's 4 accusers, only 3 have filed lawsuits. The first accuser struck a settlement with Clash and agreed not to pursue litigation.

We reached out to Clash for comment -- no word back.

I just want to know where were the parents' in all of this. I know my parents would not have let me fly across the country like that without knowing who where and when.... Just asking because there are red flags in these cases.

Well, Clash is certainly screwed now. So far, the way Clash and Doe #2 met does not appear to be as illegal as Doe #1 and accuser #2. Don't throw him in jail (he'll get murdered, preventing other victims from making valid accusations), don't bring up sesame street (because it had nothing to do with Clash's penis). Drain him of all his cash.

He must've had so much emotional trauma to wait until 3 other people sued him to actually do something about it. Elmo has brought so much happiness to so many kids and it disgusts me that these money hungry little ****s want to ruin it for them. Ridiculous.

How come hardly anyone questions a young girl that comes forward many years after being molested by an adult male. Why do so many of you blame the victim when it is male on male statutory rape?

The truth will come out. It's not difficult for a prosecutor to prove who bought a plane ticket and who took the flight. If the kid names the hotel he stayed in and Clash paid for the room & the flight then that's good enough for me.
