Dozens of people have accused Wynn Resorts CEO of sexual misconduct

Employees at the Wynn Las Vegas' on-site salon - which Wynn frequented - told the Journal they sometimes created fake appointments and had others pose as assistants so female workers wouldn't have to be in Wynn's office alone with him.

This wasn't the only incident of sexual misconduct by Wynn, sources told the Journal. One of these women said she complied, terrified of losing her job. Ditto for Wall Street and dozens of other industries. As such, WYNN stock is down more than 6% today, and options volume is skyrocketing as bears speculate on more downside.

The abuse was apparently well-known among Wynn's employees - to the point that some took steps to protect one another. The detailed report relies on interviews with dozens of people who corroborate a decades-long pattern of sexual misconduct with female employees.

The Journal reported that former employees claim that some of them would hide in bathrooms or back rooms to avoid Wynn when he was spending time at his casino.

The Wynn Resorts CEO denied the accusations, saying "the idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous". "It is deplorable for anyone to find themselves in this situation", he said. The casino mogul has denied the allegations, and has blamed his ex-wife for instigating them. Later, she said, he asked her for oral sex, which she refused. With a net worth estimated at $3.8 billion by Forbes, Wynn was a rival to President Donald Trump when the Trump Organization expanded into the Las Vegas market. Shortly before the casino opened in 1999, the then chairman of Las Vegas-based Mirage Resorts, parent company of Beau Rivage, spoke to 1,100 people who attended a private premiere party.

But the two seem to have made up.

Donald Trump and Steve Wynn are seen on October 19, 2006.

Right, listen up dog owners - no matter how cute you think it would be DO NOT dye your dog purple, or any colour for that matter. The dog is also reportedly doing well. "Shes just very loving and shes very demanding with how she wants attention", he said.

Sexual assault allegations have forced management turnover in a number of companies, including Amazon.com, Inc.

Steve Wynn owns Wynn casinos, and he is the Republican National Committee's finance chair.

In Trump's 1987 book The Art of the Deal, he wrote, "Wynn is very slick and smooth, but he's also a very unusual guy".

Since 2013, Wynn has contributed almost $2.4 million to GOP candidates and party organizations around the country, including 2017 special election winners as well as dozens of state Republican Party committees.

Steve Wynn speaks at a news conference in Medford, Mass., in March 2016.

Weinstein himself was a major supporter of Democrats.
