Steve Wynn has resigned as CEO and chairman of Wynn Resorts, the company announced Tuesday. The move comes after a Wall Street Journal report published in January detailed allegations of decades of sexual misconduct by the gambling mogul.
The allegations in the report detailed accounts from dozens of current and former employees that would amount to “a decades-long pattern of sexual misconduct,” as well as a $7.5 million financial settlement paid to a manicurist who alleged she was pressured into having sex with Wynn.
In January, Wynn stepped down from his post as the Republican National Committee’s finance chief. The billionaire, a prominent supporter of President Donald Trump, presided over a record-setting cash haul for the RNC. The group is projected to have raised more than $130 million in 2017.
The RNC has still not returned his money.
