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.”
