Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 28, 2018

Casino mogul and Republican National Committee (RNC) finance chair Steve Wynn is facing accusations of sexual misconduct, including that he forced a woman to have sex with him in 2005, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. Wynn, who was named an RNC official after President Trump's inauguration, allegedly committed acts of sexual misconduct for decades, and would pressure some employees to take part in sex acts. The Journal reported that Wynn reached a $7.5 million settlement with a manicurist who worked at his Wynn Las Vegas property after he forced her to have sex with him. She returned from his office upset and told her colleagues about the incident, according to The Journal.

The settlement was referred to in a lawsuit filed by Wynn's ex-wife, Elaine.

Wynn denied the allegations in a statement to The Journal.

"The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous. We find ourselves in a world where people can make allegations, regardless of the truth, and a person is left with the choice of weathering insulting publicity or engaging in multi-year lawsuits. It is deplorable for anyone to find themselves in this situation," Wynn said.

More from the article:

Of the 150 people that The Journal contacted, several former employees said that female staffers would hide if they knew Wynn was on his way to a salon.

"Everybody was petrified," Jorgen Nielsen, a former artistic director at the salon, told The Journal. He said that he and other employees told top officials about Wynn's actions, but "nobody was there to help us."

A former employee said that Wynn instructed her to ---------- him, and that when she refused to perform oral sex, he stopped requesting that she give him massages.

Steve Wynn has been a creepizoid for decades, no doubt about it. I know his daughters, Kevyn and Gillian and some of the stories that they tell about their father (who is a good friend and travel buddy of Ron Burkle and Bill Clinton) are mind blowing. What is surprising about this is that it took so long to hit the mainstream press.

The RNC should have known about this and there is no excuse as to why he was even appointed in the first place.

"What is surprising about this is that it took so long to hit the mainstream press."

It's amazing how some juicy bits of info can be kept secret for so long.

Tiger Woods is best example of that. Probably one of the most if not THE most popular and recognized celebrity in the world at one point. Everybody in the PGA and the media knew what was going on with him but until Tiger and his wife blew the lid off themselves, it stayed hidden from everyone else.

#4 I was wondering if Wynn, like Trump, Clinton and Dershowitz, have ties to Jeffrey Epstein?

#5 Another example from years gone by is when Peter Townshend from The Who came out as bisexual.

I was in college at the time. The TV ran a teaser, "Tune in at 11 to find out which major rock star came out in Hollywood today." Guy in our floor who was actually from Hollywood knew who it was right away. Often times the local community just knows these things organically.

I imagine that was at a time when "coming out" was a HUGE deal.

I'll never forget when Rock Hudson came out....my mom (and likely every woman in that generation) was devastated.

Too true, especially in the Entertainment Industry...with the notable exception of Clownshack, who is the Industry's Sergeant Schultz.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn has no immediate plans to relinquish his role as finance chairman of the Republican National Committee in the wake of reports detailing decades of alleged sexual misconduct, according to a company spokesman.

Last weekend, Wynn and RNC Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel co-hosted a lavish fundraiser for Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort to mark the first anniversary of his inauguration. Trump skipped the event as he stayed in Washington to monitor the start of a partial government shutdown.

Wynn has given more than $1.5 million to various Republican Party committees and candidates in the last five years, with a six-figure donation of more than $450,000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee in the 2016 cycle. While most of his donations went to the Republican Party committees, several leading Republican members of Congress, including Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Tex.) have also benefited from his cash.

Of course not. Because conservatives don't have an issue with sexual harassment, assault, or rape.

Republican audience bursts into applause.

RNC Silent So Far About Contributions From Steve Wynn After Allegations He Forced Women Into Sex

The committee tarred Dems for taking campaign cash from Harvey Weinstein. Now they have to figure out what to do money from the mogul accused of being a pervy predator.

Wynn has donated more than $2 million to Republican campaigns, party organs, and interest groups since 2001, according to FEC records. That includes more than $1.3 million to the Republican National Committee (compared with the $300,0000 in donations that Weinstein gave to the DNC) and the party's House and Senate campaign arms. He also bundled between $250,000 and $500,000 for Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign.

Wynn has also contributed to Democrats, such as the party's former Senate leader, Nevada's Harry Reid. He was friends with other prominent Democrats, including longtime Harlem congressman Charlie Rangel.

But the vast majority of Wynn's political contributions, and public advocacy, have been directed towards Republicans.

So NOW the truth comes out, everybody thought Drumpf said we would get tired of "winning" as in good things would be happening to the country when in fact he meant "Wynning" as in he, the GOP and their donors would be raping the treasury, taxpayers, environment, etc.
