Wynn quits as RNC finance chairman after sexual misconduct allegations

Casino tycoon Steve Wynn resigned Saturday as finance chairman of the Republican National Committee amid printed allegations of longtime sexual misconduct.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel mentioned in a commentary that she authorized Mr. Wynn’s resignation. She made no connection with the allegations.

Mr. Wynn, 76, a big donor to Republican applicants and committees, was once President Trump’s selection for the finance place. A substitute has no longer been introduced.

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Mr. Wynn had engaged in sexual harassment on a large number of events over an extended length.

In a commentary to Politico, Mr. Wynn blamed the allegations on his ex-wife Elaine, “with whom I am involved in a terrible and nasty lawsuit in which she is seeking a revised divorce settlement.”

“The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous,” Mr. Wynn mentioned. “We find ourselves in a world where people can make allegations, regardless of the truth, and a person is left with the choice of weathering insulting publicity or engaging in multi-year lawsuits.”
