Wisconsin Republicans to donate contributions tied to Steve Wynn

Billionaire Steve Wynn quits as Republican finance chief amid sexual assault claims

Billionaire Steve Wynn quits as Republican finance chief amid sexual assault claims

MA gaming regulators will meet in public Wednesday to discuss "serious allegations of misconduct" by Steve Wynn, whose Wynn Resorts is developing a $2.5 billion resort casino outside Boston.

"If I were governor right now, I would work to ensure that Steve Wynn lost his operational control and ownership interest in Wynn Resorts", candidate Setti Warren said, adding that not ousting Wynn would make MA residents "complicit in Steve Wynn's evil behavior".

Sexual harassment and "dirty" money found its way into the New Hampshire political dialogue Monday as each major political party demanded the other return contributions from high-profile figures.

Wynn claims the allegations relate to the break-up of his marriage.

The decision followed a report released on Friday from the Wall Street Journal alleging that Wynn engaged in sexual harassment.

Sununu's spokesman did not return several messages seeking comment, but a NHGOP spokesman fired back at Buckley and the Democrats.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel told committee members Saturday she had accepted Wynn's resignation as finance committee chairman.

Wynn Macau said in a brief statement that it will fully cooperate with any requests from the bureau. And former Newton Mayor Setti Warren said if the RNC can't work with him anymore, MA shouldn't either.

DOJ warns Devin Nunes not to release controversial FISA memo
Jaffer was referring to text messages between the two that disparaged Trump - but also commented negatively on some Democrats. Since writing the memo, Nunes has kept it under lock and key but allowed members of the House to view it.

The statement came after Macau's gambling regulator said it was concerned about reports Wynn, 76, might have been "involved in inappropriate behavior in the United States".

Morgan Stanley and Union Gaming Group LLC downgraded their ratings on Wynn Macau stock yesterday, after the Wall Street Journal reported that Wynn - a casino industry stalwart - pressured massage therapists and a former resort manicurist to perform sex acts. "I can tell you that the statute provides the Commission with broad authority over the status of a gaming license". His name has become synonymous with casino. Because of Steve Wynn's notoriety, one can find many reports raising questions about his background.

They added: "Thus, hypothetically, if Mr Wynn were to step down, something we aren't about to speculate on, we do believe there would be an impact, over time, on the operations of the company and we believe the design and development of future company projects would lack the meticulous attention to detail the current portfolio is renowned for". "If Wynn is not disassociated in all ways from the company licensed to build and operate a casino in MA, the Gaming Commission should revoke the license".

Gonzalez said Wynn's reputation "absolutely and unequivocally disqualifies him from operating a casino".

Warren, also a Democrat, said it's "clear that Steve Wynn is not a good partner for MA".

Baker said it was the responsibility of Wynn Resorts' board to take action on Wynn, the company's CEO, if he was determined not to meet the state's suitability law. The Hong Kong-listed division of Wynn Resorts has lost more than $2 billion in stock market value over the past two days. On a conference call, Steve Wynn expressed optimism the business will be able to continue after the gaming licenses of Macau's six casino operators start expiring from 2020.
