Voice of Elmo

Underage Sex Accusers

Have NO RIGHT To Sue Me

Kevin Clash
-- the former voice of Elmo on "Sesame Street" -- says the three men who accused him of sexually abusing them as minors have no case against him ... because too much time has passed since the alleged abuse.

Clash has just filed a motion to dismiss the three lawsuits filed against him by Cecil Singleton and two other unidentified men.

According to Clash, the statute of limitations on the sexually-motivated crimes he's accused of committing is six years -- and the crimes in each instance allegedly occurred more than ten years ago.

As we reported, Clash has been sued by the three men -- each of whom claims Clash engaged in sexual activity with them when they were minors, causing them mental and psychological damage.

The men claim they only recently became "aware" of the damage that was done -- which is why it took them so long to sue -- but Clash says that's BS. 

Clash wants the judge to toss out all three lawsuits asap.

The accusers were indeed spewing a bunch of BS. 15/16 years olds know what they're doing when they're on a gay chat room looking for men. Come on now. People feel like they can twist stories and sue for anything now.

Disgusting pervert. Too bad he cannot file his motion based upon his innocence. Its like he is saying "Ha Ha, you can't get me!" Yeah, these "victims" probably are sniffing $$$ but at the same time, he should not have even been in the position (ah.. should use a better word) to be accused by anyone in the first place.
