NEW YORK (AP) — The puppeteer who was the voice of Elmo on "Sesame Street" is being sued for the fifth time — accused of sexually abusing an underage youth.
According to a federal lawsuit filed in New York Tuesday, Kevin Kiadii (keeh-EH'-deeh), now 25, says he was 16 when he met Kevin Clash during an online chat,
Kiadii's attorney, Jeff Herman, says Clash sent a limousine to pick up the teen in Brooklyn and bring him to his Manhattan apartment for sex.
Herman represents four other youths who filed similar suits.
The attorney acknowledges his clients were compliant, but says the 52-year-old entertainer took advantage of young men by playing father to them.
Clash resigned from "Sesame Street" in November.
His lawyer, Michael Berger, did not immediately respond to a call for comment.

Alcohol in South Korea
All bars and local night establishments are filled to the brim with things you have seen in all other places like Jack Daniels and Jagermeister.
However you may spy a little green bottle with Korean writing on it and you may ask what is that? It's called Soju, my friends or 소주 for the Hangil inclined (Korean Language).
Soju is a spirit primarily made from rice, barley, potatoes or tapioca and has an average alcohol content of 20% ABV however there are some brands of Andong Soju that are upward of 45% ABV.
None the less, they will both get the job done. Soju has a taste very similar to vodka but it is slightly sweeter and easier to consume by itself.
Now we get to the matter of cost and availability; however rest assured the answer will be qiute positive. Soju is available all over South Korea from the local convenience store for 1,000 Won = roughly $1 or in a restaurant for 3,000 Won =$3. So these adult treats certainly won't set you back any considerable amount.
It alco mixes quite well with beer, cider, and energy drinks. Soju has been around since the 13th century and shows no signs of going anywhere anytime soon. So when you get the chance come on down to the Republic of South Korea and have a shot of deliciousness.
