博彩业大亨史蒂夫·韦恩被指性行为不当富翁辞职 Casino Mogul Wynn Resigns After Sexual Misconduct Allegations

美国亿万富翁、博彩业大亨史蒂夫·韦恩(Steve Wynn)辞去了在永利度假村的首席执行官职务。不到两星期前,华尔街日报报道,他被指称几十年期间一直有不当性行为。




韦恩是博彩业中的泰斗之一,帮助重振了拉斯维加斯的发展,参与的工程包括百乐宮酒店(Bellagio)、米拉奇酒店(The Mirage)和金银岛酒店(Treasure Island)。


Billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn has resigned as head of Wynn Resorts, less than two weeks after the Wall Street Journal published a report about decades of allegations of sexual misconduct.

The Journal article detailed several incidents in which Wynn allegedly pressured staff to perform sex acts. The allegations include those from a manicurist who claims she was forced to have sex with Wynn in 2005, shortly after he opened his flagship Wynn Las Vegas. The paper said she was later paid a $7.5 million settlement.

Wynn has denied the accusations, including again in a statement issued Tuesday announcing he was stepping down.

"In the last couple of weeks, I have found myself the focus of an avalanche of negative publicity. As I have reflected upon the environment this has created -- one in which a rush to judgment takes precedence over everything else, including the facts -- I have reached the conclusion I cannot continue to be effective in my current roles," he said.

Wynn is a towering figure in the gambling world who helped revitalize Las Vegas with resorts such as The Bellagio, The Mirage and Treasure Island.

In addition to being a business mogul, Wynn also served as the finance chairman of the Republican National Committee before resigning from that post last month, and has been a large contributor to the Republican Party.
