Wisconsin Republicans getting rid of Wynn money

Steve Wynn resigns as RNC finance committee chairman

Rob Portman said the Ohio Republican would donate the $5,400 his campaign received from Wynn for his 2016 campaign to charities aimed at stemming human sex-trafficking.

The sexual misconduct allegations against Mr. Wynn first appeared in a Friday report by the Wall Street Journal.

"The Commission is profoundly aware of the gravity of this matter and will proceed with the appropriate sense of urgency and rigor", spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll said in a statement.

Pomerantz LLP, a national law firm known for bringing securities class action lawsuits, is targeting Wynn Resorts Limited in the wake of sexual harassment claims against gambling mogul Steve Wynn, announcing yesterday it is "investigating claims on behalf of investors".

Baker reached out to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission on Friday, he said on Monday, and conveyed to the commission that he wanted the situation to be reviewed in light of the suitability clause for licensees included in the state's expanded gaming law.

The Republican Governors Association, the chief campaign fundraising group for GOP governor candidates, was returning $100,000 from Wynn's company.

"The allegations made against Mr. Wynn. are extremely serious", RGA spokesman Jon Thompson said.

"Today I accepted Steve Wynn's resignation as Republican National Committee finance chair", said RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, Politico reported.

The Republican Party of Wisconsin plans to donate a $10,000 contribution from Wynn to "organizations that help victims of sexual harassment and abuse", according to a spokesman.

A Wynn spokesman said "we restate our commitment to be fully cooperative with any review the Massachusetts Gaming Commission chooses to undertake". And former Newton Mayor Setti Warren said if the RNC can't work with him anymore, MA shouldn't either.

The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, DICJ, said in a Monday statement that it was "concerned" over the reports involving the casino mogul. "I can tell you that the statute provides the Commission with broad authority over the status of a gaming license".

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".

Wynn is one of a handful of companies licensed to operate casinos in the Chinese territory. The Gaming Commission previously found nothing in Wynn's past that would disqualify him from holding a license, and said his name was "synonymous with gaming".

"The board is deeply committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all of the company's employees and to operating with the highest ethical standards", the board said in a statement in the Journal.

But he also contributed to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Universal Entertainment is seeking return of 24.55 million shares in Wynn Resorts that Universal Entertainment says are owed to its own unit Aruze USA Inc. Wynn Resorts now operates two properties in the city, including the $4-plus-billion Wynn Palace on the Cotai Strip.
