Wisconsin Republicans getting rid of Wynn money

Billionaire Steve Wynn quits as Republican finance chief amid sexual assault claims

WASHINGTON-The Republican Governors Association has chose to give back $100,000 in donations from Steve Wynn's company and cut other financial ties with the casino mogul, in the wake of a Wall Street Journal report on allegations describing a decadeslong pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Wynn.

On Friday, the RNC did not respond to requests for comment about a report by the Wall Street Journal that included interviews with dozens of people who have worked at Wynn's casinos or been told of his alleged behavior, including allegations that he pressured some employees to perform sex acts.

Some Republicans in Congress are announcing plans to donate campaign contributions linked to as the casino mogul faces claims of sexual misconduct.

Wynn Macau shares sank almost 5% in Hong Kong on Tuesday, following a 6.5% drop on Monday. The newspaper reported Wynn later paid the manicurist a $7.5 million settlement. The Firm has recovered numerous multimillion-dollar damages awards on behalf of class members.

No sizable upside opportunity exists until the company reaches the $150-per-share level, he said. "I'm really glad the Republican National Committee stepped back and he stepped down".

Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley issued his demand after the Republican Governor's Association returned $10,000 that it had received from Wynn Resorts a year ago.

Candidate Jay Gonzalez, in a statement, said "Steve Wynn can not be allowed to run a casino in MA".

He also noted that the board of Wynn Resorts, which is a publicly traded company, is doing its own review.

"There are multiple allegations of assault and harassment against him, and the near silence is deafening coming from the Republicans. The suitability and integrity of our gaming licensees is of the utmost importance, and ensuring that suitability is an active and ongoing process", commission spokeswoman Driscoll said in a statement.

"Steve Wynn's resignation amid these allegations should make the NHGOP's decision clear as day", Buckley said in a statement provided to WMUR.

The announcements come in light of a Wall Street Journal report Friday that Wynn, a casino mogul and prolific Republican donor, sexually harassed several women.

The board, which oversees an $18.5 billion company with casinos in Las Vegas and the Chinese territory of Macau, has been criticized for overpaying Wynn and other executives while allowing perks such as corporate jets and a land deal between the company and its founder. Meanwhile, Wynn Resorts' stock has been hammered in the US, plummeting 10% on Friday and 9% on Monday.

Democrat Jay Gonzalez said the commission should revoke Wynn's license unless he is "disassociated in all ways" from the company authorized to build and operate the casino.
