Some Republicans in Congress are announcing plans to donate campaign contributions linked to Steve Wynn as the casino mogul faces claims of sexual misconduct.
GOP lawmakers aimed to distance themselves from the billionaire, who resigned as the party's finance chairman on Saturday. Democrats quickly put pressure on Republicans to return Wynn's money — echoing Republicans when numerous sexual misconduct allegations against prolific Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein surfaced.
Multiple members of Congress said they would give donations from Wynn or an affiliated organization to charity. According to NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, the following GOP lawmakers and organizations have announced plans to donate Wynn's contributions:
Wynn has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to candidates and committees over the years, and his contributions have gone to both Republicans and Democrats. His donations in recent years have skewed heavily toward the GOP.
Wynn became the top Republican fundraiser last year and oversaw a period in which the Republican National Committee handily outraised the Democratic Party. It is unclear whether the national party organization plans to donate Wynn's contributions.
Last week, a Wall Street Journal story described a "pattern" of sexual misconduct allegations against Wynn, some of which resulted in financial settlements.
Wynn says "the idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous."
