RNC chairman caught up in sex scandal, forced to resign, reports say
(INTELLIHUB) — Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn is abandoning his post as Republican National Committee Finance Chairman after it was reported by the Wall Street Journal on Friday that Winn forced a manicurist to have sex with him in 2005.
The manicurist received a $7.5 million settlement for the sexual misconduct which could be a part of a larger pattern, according to others who have encountered the high-rolling pit boss over the years.
Mr. Wynn has denied all allegations, stating, “The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous.”
The RNC is currently exploring prospects for Wynn’s replacement.
