You know, as much as I hate defending Jude ( :) )... I'm gonna need a citation for that claim.

Where did you get this factoid, that half of all Georgian marriages are 45 year olds, marrying 18 year olds, who knew each other when they were 43 and 16? :smt102

Clash has trained enough stand ins at this point that he doesn't need to touch the character ever again.

But honestly, nothing about this case sounded right from the beginning and yes it seems that six figures have made it already disappear quickly which makes things worse on both sides. You have someone who does really great things for children like granting countless make a wish requests and even goes on the radio in character to comfort children during hurricane sandy to be suddenly raked over the coals. It just sucks.

Agreed. I've seen (and recorded) the documentary about him, and he's a great guy.

Right. It's a double standard which is fucked up, but he should still know better.

he probably never expected it to go public, and honestly who knows the voice actor of Elmo anyways? Who would be looking this stuff up?

It's not like he pulled a Woody Allen or something, which is just twisted.

the only reason its a "scandal" is because A) he's the voice/puppeteer behind Elmo and B) he's gay...
