Elmo Puppeteer’s Accuser Has a Shady Past

A bit of aftermath to Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash's name being dragged through the mud: The man who accused Clash of engaging in an underage sexual relationship, then immediately recanted, may be kind of a schemer. Sheldon Stephens, 24, pictured here, is revealed by the Smoking Gun to be a struggling model/actor who was once arrested "for the knifepoint robbery of $250,000 in jewelry from a music manager for whom he interned." Mountains more at the Smoking Gun if you need that in your life.
