The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that both former and current employees at Wynn Resorts had revealed multiple sexual harassment incidents involving their boss, Mr. Wynn.

While not referring directly to the sexual misconduct claims against Mr Wynn, they added: "Management continuity is important: Wynn Macau Ltd has received a premium for its stable management and corporate structure, but could face derating if this were to change for any reason". "Wynn Resorts will no longer hold membership in our corporate membership program". Wynn resort was among the biggest winners of the return to gambling in Macau.

Wynn has donated to the Republican Governors Association, which backed Baker's gubernatorial bid.

"I can confirm that we're donating that money to Project 16:49, a local charity in Rock County that supports homeless children", Ryan campaign spokesman Jeremy Adler said in an email. "I don't think we should have a double standard for ourselves".

Sean Spicer appeared on MSNBC this afternoon and spoke candidly about what he thinks Republicans should do with the millions of dollars disgraced finance chairman Steve Wynn has donated to the RNC and to various Republican leaders, and to a lesser extent, some Democrats. "The instigation of these accusations is the continued work of my ex-wife, Elaine Wynn, with whom I am involved in a bad and nasty lawsuit in which she is seeking a revised divorce settlement".

Trump, addressing Nevada supporters in February 2016, praised Wynn as a "great friend of mine". In 2000, he gave $20,000 to the Democratic National Campaign Committee, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks money in the electoral process.

The rise in militancy was believed to be tied to Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on December 6. And they would still support a two-state solution if that's what the Israelis and the Palestinians would support.

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

After the allegations of sexual misconduct against Wynn surfaced, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker reportedly explained through a spokesperson that he is "deeply disturbed by these allegations and expects them to be taken seriously".

Wynn also made contributions to Democrats in the past, including former Montana Senator Max Baucus.

Trump, who also has been accused of sexual misconduct, has not commented on Wynn or his resignation from the top fundraising post for the party. "It is deplorable for anyone to find themselves in this situation", Wynn said.

While social media was active with Wynn Reosrts customers vowing they won't return to Wynn properties in light of allegations of sexual impropriety by Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn, the company says there have been no more reservation cancellations than normal.

It also became clear that the Massachusetts Gaming Commission will review the appropriateness of Wynn Resorts operating a casino resort in the state, following the allegations.
