73. Again, you meet someone in a bar, do you "card" them later?

I don't think so. Also, he's not accused of having
"sexual intercourse" with the kid--and this does look like the guy is being shaken down.

Clash did not address the new allegations. He said previously that he had an adult and consensual relationship with the first accuser. The divorced father of a grown daughter, he acknowledged that he is gay.

At a news conference Tuesday, Singleton said he and Clash met on a gay chat line when he was 15, and for a two-week period, they had sexual contact but not intercourse. He said he didnít know what Clash did for a living until he was 19 and Googled his name.

Why would "what he does for a living" matter? Do we sue wealthy puppeteers, but not, say, janitors or garbagemen?

Time will tell.
