Wynn resigns as RNC finance chair amid reports of sexual misconduct

Wynn resigns as RNC finance chair amid reports of sexual misconduct

The 76-year-old is said to have pressured the married woman to take her clothes off and lie on the massage table he kept in his office.

Wynn Resorts alleges that the Journal story is a result of an effort by Elaine Wynn, Steve Wynn's ex-wife, to "tarnish the reputation of Mr. Wynn in an attempt to pressure a revised divorce settlement from him".

Wynn Resorts's board of directors, a 10-member group - with just one woman - said they have launched an investigation into the allegations. She made no reference to the allegations.

Wynn, President Donald Trump's foe-turned-friend, was at one point Trump's casino-business rival.

"Today I accepted Steve Wynn's resignation as Republican National Committee finance chair", RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel said in a statement.

The RNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the Politico report. The work we are doing to make America a better place is too important to be impaired by this distraction. "We will continue to march side by side with women all across this country because we believe that women must be empowered and respected".

Trump and McDaniel discussed the Wynn controversy by phone on Saturday (Sunday NZT), according to two people briefed on the call. He has also donated to Sen.

Wynn has donated to a wide range of political figures, including Nevada senator Dean Heller and the Montana congressman Greg Gianforte.

He was a prominent Democratic donor, and a year ago, Republicans had a field day demanding his donations be returned.

Wynn is the CEO of Wynn Resorts and former owner of the Mirage, Treasure Island and Bellagio resorts in Las Vegas.

Later he formed another company, opening Wynn Las Vegas in 2005 and Encore Las Vegas in 2008 on land that included the famous Desert Inn.

Wynn's massive casino and hotel project in Everett is well under construction.

He also built hotel/casinos in Macau, China.

The newspaper said the activity had gone on for decades and that some female employees had complained to supervisors about Wynn's behaviour, the New York Times reported. The report said several other former employees also claimed they faced unwanted sexual advances from him.
