Dozens of women, including Wynn Resorts employees, have accused Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn of engaging in behavior that amounts to "a decades-long pattern of sexual misconduct," in interviews with the WSJ. Several accounts include detailed instances of him pressuring employees to perform sex acts.

Why it matters: Wynn, who denied the allegations, is the latest public figure to be swept up in the #MeToo movement. But as a billionaire CEO and finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, he is also one of the first men in his highly-regulated industry to face such accusations.
