Heller, Ryan giving Wynn donations to charity

Steve Wynn Chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts speaks during the Milken Institute Global Conference

GOP Senators have urged Republican colleagues to return any donations they had received from casino boss Steve Wynn, after multiple sexual harassment allegations surfaced against him late last week. "Steve Wynn's reputation absolutely and unequivocally disqualifies him from operating a casino", Gonzalez said.

Wynn, a major Republican donor, is building a resort casino in Everett.

"The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous", Wynn said in a statement that Wynn Resorts sent to media outlets Friday.

Wynn has been a major contributor to the Republican Governors Association, which Gov. Scott Walker headed past year.

Kingdom Holding shares surge on Prince Alwaleed's release
Alwaleed told Reuters on Saturday that there were "no charges" against him and that he was in discussions with the government. Prince Alwaleed told Reuters he was continuing to maintain his innocence of any corruption in talks with authorities.

The Republican Governors Association, the chief campaign fundraising group for GOP governor candidates, was returning $100,000 from Wynn's company. "We reached out to the Gaming Commission and told them they needed to do a review of this as quickly and as thoroughly as they possibly could, and if the allegations turn out to be true, then yeah, Wynn would fail to meet the suitability standard under the state gaming law".

The Wall Street Journal added: "The manicurist said she told Mr. Wynn she didn't want to have sex and was married, but he persisted in his demands that she do so, and ultimately she did disrobe and they had sex, the people remember her saying".

Republicans have been scrambling since the Journal's story, which claimed that Wynn pressured employees into sexual acts, among other allegations.

"The conduct of Elaine during the course of the pending lawsuits has been shocking and deeply disturbing to me personally and as the CEO of Wynn Resorts", Wynn said. He also thanked US President Donald Trump for the job.
