Though Steve Wynn is an American real estate mogul and art collector, he might be best known for his Las Vegas casino contributions. He has created some of the most famous hotels/casinos in Sin City including The Mirage, Treasure Island, Bellagio, and the Wynn and is worth an estimated $3.5 billion. And until a few days ago, he also happened to be the Republican National Committee Finance Chairman. He resigned from this position after the sexual harassment allegations below came out by dozens of people over three decades.
Here is what we know about the allegations:
1/ Wynn allegedly pressured his employees to frequently perform sex acts. The abuse was so well known, that sometimes his employees would make fake appointments for their colleagues to protect them from being alone with him.
2/ Wynn paid out a $7.5 million settlement to his manicurist after he allegedly pressured her to lie on a massage table and have sex with him. She told Wynn she didn’t want to have sex because she was married but he persisted.
3/ Wynn would expose his genitals during massage sessions and ask the women massaging him to “touch him.”
4/ At times, Wynn would make sexual requests in a small space occupied by one or more of his German Shepards, a move that intimidated women into cooperation.
Current GOP candidates are desperately trying to distance themselves from Wynn by redirecting his contributions to charitable organizations. Wynn denies the accusations, however, calling them preposterous. Instead, he believes his ex-wife, Elaine Wynn, may have something to do with it.
