Elmo no more?  Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who mans Sesame Street’s “Elmo,” has resigned from his job, reports TMZ.

According to the site, Clash is being sued by a 2nd man who says he and the puppeteer met in a gay phone chat back in 1993, when he was 15 and Kevin was 32.

Sesame Workshop sent out the following statement regarding the latest chapter in this scandal: "Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street. This is a sad day for Sesame Street."
