Steve Wynn’s sex scandal has been the talk of the Republican town since news broke and forced him to resign as chair of the RNC Finance Committee.
Wynn supporters, however, are trying to spin the revelations as so much hearsay by posting this notice at his namesake hotel in Las Vegas, addressed to employees.

Looks like the people in charge at the company are trying to brush this off as so much “fake news.” The memo says allegations against Steve Wynn are just part and parcel of a lawsuit brought against him by Elaine Wynn, his former wife and business partner. Nevermind that even if that’s the case, for the allegations to turn up as evidence in the case verifies their truth.
After an explosive report in The Wall Street Journal exposed decades of highly documented sexual assault and misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn, the casino mogul turned Republican National Committee Finance Chairman resigned his position as the Republican Party’s chief fundraiser.
“Today I accepted Steve Wynn’s resignation as Republican National Committee finance chair,” said RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel.
Politico reported that McDaniel spoke with President Trump about his personally chosen pick for the Finance Chairman this morning before making her announcement.
While Wynn has donated million of his own money to the Republican Party as head of Republican fundraising he also acted as a “rainmaker,” soliciting donations from other wealthy oligarchs to fund their continuing takeover of our government.
While the GOP has accepted Wynn’s resignation, there is yet no word on whether they will do what they repeatedly insisted that Democrats do with the substantial sums of money donated to their party by Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein and return it.
Wynn’s downfall was relatively swift after The Wall Street Journal report indicated that he had pressured numerous employees of his hotel and casino empire to “perform sexual acts,” including massaging “his penis to climax” and gave the details of a $7.5 million settlement awarded to a married staff manicurist pressured into sex with her 76-year-old boss.
Wynn denies the allegations as the nefarious by-product of a lawsuit by his ex-wife as she tries to revise their divorce settlement. Despite the denials, his resignation speaks volumes about the veracity of the allegations, as does the company the friend of the President keeps.
