GOP governors group returns Wynn donation
MADISON, Wis. — The chief campaign group for Republican candidates for governor is returning $100,000 to the company run by billionaire Steve Wynn, in the aftermath of allegations the Las Vegas casino mogul sexually harassed several women.
The Republican Governors Association calls the allegations, reported Friday by The Wall Street Journal, “extremely serious.”
The group received a contribution of $100,000 from Wynn Resorts in September for the 2018 campaign.
A spokesman says the association is also cancelling a contract to hold its 2020 annual convention at the Wynn Las Vegas resort and will not accept contributions from Wynn Resorts, nor solicit contributions from Wynn, unless the claims against him are proven false.
