GOP governor's group to return $100000 from Wynn company amid sex allegations

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

The RGA also won't accept future contributions from Wynn Resorts or Wynn himself "unless the allegations against Mr. Wynn are proven to be false". He resigned from that fundraising post over the weekend.

Wynn Macau shares sank almost 5% in Hong Kong on Tuesday, following a 6.5% drop on Monday.

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday on allegations that Wynn has sexually harassed and assaulted employees, prompting a quick response from the commission, which awarded him the sole Greater Boston casino license in 2014.

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

While the commission did not lay out a timeline or process for its review, a meeting has been called for Wednesday to discuss the allegations against Wynn and the commission's Investigations and Enforcement Bureau plans to provide commissioners with a "status update" on its efforts, according to a spokeswoman.

Candidate Jay Gonzalez, in a statement, said "Steve Wynn can not be allowed to run a casino in MA". The former finance chairman denied the allegations in a statement to the Journal and blamed his ex-wife for instigating them.

Party spokesman Blaine Kelly said the group is combing through its records to find out how much Wynn gave the party over the years so it can also give that money to charity.




David Siders, reporter for Politico, breaks down how Steve Wynn's resignation as RNC Finance Chair might affect Donald Trump and the GOP as a whole.

The Las Vegas gambling giant was selected as a preferred developer of a casino complex in the state following the introduction of certain changes in its Constitution that allowed the provision of commercial Las Vegas-style casino games. "If I were governor right now, I would work to ensure that Steve Wynn lost his operational control and ownership interest in Wynn Resorts", Warren said. In his book "Trump: The Art of the Deal", Trump said, "Wynn is very slick and smooth, but he's also a very odd guy".

Top Wisconsin Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Patrick J. Toomey (Pa.), have benefited from his cash.

"The instigation of these accusations is the continued work of my ex-wife Elaine Wynn, with whom I am involved in a bad and nasty lawsuit in which she is seeking a revised divorce settlement", Wynn claimed. Dean Heller - are giving political contributions from Las Vegas casino kingpin Steve Wynn to charity in light of against the. Republicans previously called on Democrats to return contributions from disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Wynn, who has a net worth of $3.5 billion, according to Forbes, has donated to the RNC as well as GOP politicians that include Sens. I really believe this should not be about any one party, it should not be partisan. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) but first faces a primary against Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.).

The RGA said that it can not return $2.5 million it received from Wynn Resorts in previous election cycles over a span of 18 years because they money has been spent.

Since 2013, Wynn has contributed almost $2.4 million to GOP candidates and party organizations around the country, including 2017 special election winners.
