Billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn was outed today as a serial sexual predator by The Wall Street Journal. He’s accused by numerous sources of sexual harassment and pressuring subordinates into sex acts. The portrait that emerges of Wynn is one of a man who abused his power and influence for years for his own sick gratification.
With the revelations about Wynn, the GOP has been exposed for sheltering yet another disgusting sex criminal within its ranks. Wynn is the finance chair of the Republican National Committee, which is darkly fitting given that the party is currently led by a self-professed sexual assaulter and accused child rapist. This is, of course, the same party that supported serial child molester Roy Moore in his failed Senate run in Alabama. Frankly, at this point, it’s surprising to learn that a prominent Republican isn’t a predator.
Wynn, who has donated millions to Republicans, including Donald Trump is a perfect example of the disturbing hypocrisy at the heart of the GOP. They claim to be the party of “family values” and yet shield monsters like Wynn. They slammed the Democrats for taking donations from Harvey Weinstein, and yet fail to call out the rapists within their own party.
The DNC refused to let the Republicans slide on this issue and have officially responded by quoting verbatim RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. She previously slammed the Democrats for taking money from people who disrespect women. The DNC pointed out the irony of McDaniel criticizing them after her party supported Roy Moore, continues to attack women’s health rights and is led by a sexual predator.

DNC responds to Steve Wynn reports: “In the exact words of RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, ‘If you stand for treating women well and you stand for the respect of women, you shouldn't take money from somebody who treated women with the absolute highest level of disrespect.’” pic.twitter.com/co5oEmq28K
