Wynn stock sinks on sexual assault allegations
Wynn Resorts stock fell more than 10% on Friday, following The Wall Street Journal's publication of sexual harassment and assault allegations against founder and CEO Steve Wynn.
- The billionaire casino mogul has denied the allegations, calling them "preposterous.”
- Wynn has no current plans to step down as finance chairman for the Republican National Committee, per a spokesperson's comments to The Washington Post.
- The Massachusetts Gaming Commission has opened a review of Wynn Resorts following the allegations. Wynn is in the midst of building a multi-billion dollar casino resort just outside of Boston.
