UPDATE: Accuser Recants Underage-Sex Allegations Against Voice-of-Elmo Guy

One day after publicly accusing Kevin Clash (the puppeteer behind Elmo) of having molested him, Clash's accuser has recanted. I, for one, am not particularly interested in who consenting adults have sex with, but since we posted about the initial accusation, this seemed to warrant a follow-up:

Accuser Recants Allegation Against Elmo Puppeteer - NYTimes.com

The man who accused Kevin Clash, the voice and puppeteer of the “Sesame Street” character Elmo, of an underage sexual relationship has recanted that claim, his lawyer said on Tuesday. The reversal came a day after the claim was first published by the gossip Web site TMZ.

Evidently third-party investigators checked out the accusations months ago, and deemed them to be without merit (a fact that sounds more persuasive when not presented within "scare quotes"). Likely the rest of us should do likewise. I heard that there were some other adults who also did some sex that we're all supposed to be very angry about. I likewise don't give a crap about that.
