Women’s Group Calls On Wynn Resorts, RNC to Fire Steve Wynn
WASHINGTON - Earlier today, the Wall Street Journal broke a story describing more than a dozen instances of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Steve Wynn.
In reaction to the news, Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet, a leading women’s advocacy organization, issued the following statement, calling on the board of Wynn Resorts to immediately fire Steve Wynn. UltraViolet is also calling on the Republican National Committee—where Wynn is the finance chair—to cut ties with him:
“Steve Wynn needs to go. He is a predator of the worst kind who used his position of power to sexually coerce his female employees. It is sadly no surprise that he keeps company with people like Donald Trump—a man who follows the same playbook of sexual abuse.
“The board of Wynn Resorts must prove that it stands against sexual assault and with survivors, and take immediate action to remove Steve Wynn from the company.
“The Republican National Committee, where Wynn serves as finance chair, must also immediately cut ties with Wynn. ”
