Elmo Accuser Recants

The New York Times reports that the yet-unnamed man who alleged that he'd engaged in innapropriate relationship while underage with Elmo voice/puppeteer Kevin Clash has recanted his accusations through his attorney.

Good news for Clash, certainly, and it's done with quickly enough that the scandal didn't quite go irreparably memetic; but I get the sense Sesame Workshop is probably still going to dial it back on Elmo for just a bit. Still sucks, but could've shaken out a lot worse.
