Rape, Sexual Coercion & The Demise of Steve Wynn

The salacious accusations made by women against casino mogul Steve Wynn are almost impossible to keep up with.

The incredible demise of casino mogul Steve Wynn continues to intensify with the latest ignominious and sleazy accusations of sexual misconduct detailing sexual coercion and even rape.
An unnamed 49-year-old woman and an unnamed 36-year-old woman made uncannily similar allegations in the latest separate lawsuits detailing what happened during their time as massage therapists working for Wynn Resorts, NY Post reported.
The younger woman claims in the lawsuit that Wynn forced her into sex acts over 50 times during massage therapy sessions, over the course of about three years starting in 2006. She claims he tipped her $400 each and told her to keep quiet and never talk about it.
The older woman said Wynn forced her to perform sexual acts about a dozen times in 2011-2012, giving her an even juicer $1,000 “tip” after each massage, also telling her to keep it a secret.
The new lawsuits brought by the massage therapists came right after 2 police reports were obtained by Associated Press regarding Wynn, dealing with rape and sexual coercion dating back to the 70’s.
In one sordid report, that sounds like something from a daytime soap-opera, a woman told officers that Wynn allegedly raped her at least three times around 1973 and 1974 at her Chicago apartment. She reported she got pregnant and gave birth to a girl in a gas station restroom.
The second police report obtained by A.P shows a woman told police she had consensual sex with Wynn several times but was forced to resign from her job at Golden Nugget casino after turning further liaisons down; the alleged victim said she “felt coerced to perform the acts.”
The Wall Street Journal originally reported in January that several women said they were harassed or assaulted by the casino mogul and finance chair of the Republican National Committee, The Jewish Voice chronicled recently.
The WSJ’s expose of his settlements in sexual misconduct cases, resulted in Wynn first stepping down as the RNC’s Finance Chair in January and in Mid-February he resigned from Chief Executive and chairman of Wynn Resorts Ltd.
In the extensive WSJ report one case detailed, led to a $7.5 million settlement with a manicurist. The victim alleged that Wynn forced her to have sex with him, shortly after opening his flagship casino Wynn, Las Vegas in 2005, JV reported
After giving Mr. Wynn a manicure, he pressured her to take her clothes off and told her to lie on the massage table he kept in his office suite. The manicurist gave this account to several other employees who all remembered the same story.
When the reports first surfaced in the WSJ report January, Steve Wynn attributed the accusations to his ex-wife when he told reporters “the instigation of these accusations is the continued work of my ex-wife Elaine, with whom I am involved in a terrible and nasty lawsuit in which she is seeking a revised divorce settlement.”
