Some in GOP heed call to return Wynn money, post-allegations

Steve Wynn resigns as RNC finance committee chairman

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) ran a report on Friday alleging sexual misconduct on Wynn's part, and on Saturday he resigned as the finance chair of the Republic National Committee (RNC). The organization, Thompson said, can not return $2.5 million in previous contributions from Wynn Resorts, donated over the last 18 years.

WASHINGTON ― Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer says the Republican National Committee should return donations from casino mogul Steve Wynn. "I think the right thing to do for the Republican Party is to have the higher moral ground and say we're going to return the money".

A spokesman for the party said it will donate the $10,000 to "organizations that help victims of sexual harassment and abuse".

The recent revelation of sexual misconduct allegations against American casino magnate Steve Wynn have reportedly prompted the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to announce that it is to review the gaming license it granted to his firm's under-construction Wynn Boston Harbor Resort.

Trump called Wynn a "great friend" after he won the Nevada caucus in February 2016, and Wynn was named finance chairman of the committee after Trump became president.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel told committee members Saturday she had accepted Wynn's resignation as finance committee chairman.

The allegations against Wynn have come during a wave of sexual misconduct claims against prominent media, entertainment and political figures that gained momentum last fall after the emergence of detailed allegations of rape and harassment involving movie producer Harvey Weinstein. The committee is scheduled to convene in Washington this week for its annual winter meeting.

Wynn's stock was still up 1.72% year-to-date. "It is deplorable for anyone to find themselves in this situation", Wynn said. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Marco Rubio of Florida and Tim Scott of SC.

The chief campaign group for Republican candidates for governor is returning $100,000 to the company run by billionaire Steve Wynn, in the aftermath of allegations the Las Vegas casino mogul sexually harassed several women. Elaine Wynn is now in a legal fight with Steve Wynn over her share of stocks in Wynn Resorts.

The Wall Street Journal article included allegations by a manicurist that allegedly received a US$7.5-million settlement from Mr Wynn after complaining he ordered her to have sex with him in 2005.

The fallout to Wynn's business interests continued Monday. Spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll said the commission's investigations and enforcement bureau will conduct a regulatory review to determine the appropriate next steps, adding "the suitability and integrity of our gaming licensees is of the utmost importance".
