WSJ Exposes RNC Finance Chair Steve Wynn's History of Sex Assault & Harrasment

I suspect there will be a resignation very soon folks. The WSJ published an explosive exposé today, detailing RNC Finance Chairman, casino magnate and Trump pal Steve Wynn's long history of sexual harassment and assault.

Dozens of People Recount Pattern of Sexual Misconduct by Las Vegas Mogul Steve Wynn

Sobbing, she told a colleague Mr. Wynn had forced her to have sex, and she repeated that to others later.

After she gave Mr. Wynn a manicure, she said, he pressured her to take her clothes off and told her to lie on the massage table he kept in his office suite, according to people she gave the account to. The manicurist said she told Mr. Wynn she didn’t want to have sex and was married, but he persisted in his demands that she do so, and ultimately she did disrobe and they had sex, the people remember her saying.
After being told of the allegations, the woman’s supervisor said she filed a detailed report to the casino’s human-resources department recounting the episode.

Mr. Wynn later paid the manicurist a $7.5 million settlement, according to people familiar with the matter.

The payoff for this 2005 incident was apparently referenced in court documents from the Wynns' 2010 divorce. It's the first of a number of incidents in the WSJ piece and from the sound if it, there are likely to be many other victims out there.

For the story, the Journal reached out to more than 150 current and former employees of Wynn. What was described is a pattern of behavior taking place over decades that's reminiscent of that of Harvey Weinstein.

Former employees said they sometimes entered fake appointments in the books to help other female workers get around a request for services in Mr. Wynn’s office or arranged for others to pose as assistants so they wouldn’t be alone with him. They told of female employees hiding in the bathroom or backrooms when they learned he was on the way to the salon.

Another alleged victim describes how Wynn gradually worked his way from casually exposing himself to coercing the woman into sex acts.

She said he wouldn’t let her use a towel to cover his genitals after that, contrary to state licensing regulations, and he also began rubbing her leg while she massaged him.

After a few weeks, the former employee said, Mr. Wynn instructed her to massage his penis to climax. “Don’t ignore it anymore,” he said, according to her recollection. The woman said that because he was her boss, she felt she had no choice but to agree to some of Mr. Wynn’s requests, including that one. She said masturbating him became a frequent part of the massage sessions for several months.

At the end of each hourlong massage session, she said, he handed her $1,000 in cash, which was the same amount as before the sexual activity began.

And yet another alleged victim relates her experiences with Wynn:

One time as she did her work in Mr. Wynn’s office, this woman said, he repeatedly rubbed his genitals, which were falling out of his shorts, and made comments about things he would like to do with her sexually. On one occasion as she was leaving his office, the former employee said, Mr. Wynn grabbed her waist as she stood against a wall and told her to kiss him. She said she slipped out of his hold and left.

Wynn's people and the Wynn Resorts reps deny the allegations, saying that it's all the invention of his ex-wife who is trying to get the terms of her divorce settlement changed.

If he did any of that.

Fire his ass.

I will not stand by and watch men act like that.

That could be your sister or your daughter.

He should be allowed to defend himself from these accusations before I declare him guilty.

However, he should resign or the rnc should suspend him until he proves his innocence.

Business Insider has a list of recipients of Wynn's political donations.

Billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn was just accused of widespread sexual misconduct — here are the major politicians and groups he helped fund

Wynn joined the RNC as its top fundraiser after Trump was elected president, and the magnate donated $729,217 to Trump's inauguration through his company, Wynn Resorts. A former business rival, Trump called Wynn "a great friend" in 2016.

Federal Election Commission records showed that, over the past four decades, Wynn donated:

more than $761,000 to the NRSC
roughly $450,000 to the RNC
more than $106,000 to the NRCC
$30,500 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Aside from Trump, Wynn has made major contributions to:

Republican Sen. Dean Heller
Republican Sen. John McCain
former Republican Rep. Joe Heck

Most of the recipients have been Republicans (some listed):

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Sen. Jeff Flake, Sen. Tim Scott, Sen. Ron Johnson, Sen. Todd Young, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Steve Daines, Sen. Dan Sullivan, Sen. Thom Tillis, Sen. Tom Cotton, Sen. Bill Cassidy, Sen. John Thune, Sen. Richard Burr, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sen. Bob Corker, Sen. Orrin Hatch

Though small and far less numerous, he's also made donations to some prominent Democrats in recent years, including Hillary Clinton (looks like it was $2,700 donated in 2016 prior to announcing his support for Trump):

On the Democratic side, Wynn donated more than $31,000 to former Sen. Harry Reid.

He has also made smaller donations to:

former Sen. Jay Rockefeller
former Sen. Barbara Boxer
former Sen. Max Baucus
former Secretary of State John Kerry
former Vice President Joe Biden
2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton

That is reasonable.

Suspend him pending investigation.

Where there is smoke, there's fire.

When multiple women come forward and we do nothing. We are the problem.

Well I have been consistent that I think that giving back donations is absurd.

No doubt this dude is a scumbag.

But i have to wonder why a point is made that he didnt tip more after sexual acts? Its not like he can be made into a bigger POS. All that comment can do is minimize her story

$1000 for a one hour massage? That's pretty high-end

If these allegations are true, good riddance to him.

Draining the swamp of scum is a non partisan agenda.

Biden needs to go.

Yup. If it's proven true, go directly to jail. Do not pass GO, Do NOT collect $200.

and Trump pal

ANY chance to bash Trump you will jump on it, or create it. You are obsessed. You should send Trump a bill for renting the space he takes up in your head.

On topic, not surprising. Fire Wynn from the (R) party asap.

Anyone remember when that was called "rape"...?

For 7.5 M, I'd probably have sex with him and I'm a hetrosexual man.

String him up. We know your agenda by now. Seems a lot of the people you argue with are pretty willing to cut the fat on any scumbags on their side. You willing to cut the fat on your side?

They all need to be strung up.

Stepping on a dangerous line there. She felt forced because she worked there. She could have quit and said no.
