Steve Wynn steps down as CEO of Wynn Resorts amid misconduct allegations

 

Republicans were quick to scream about 'give back Weinstein's money'. Exactly how much of Steve Wynn's money did the Republicans give back? Quick answer: ZERO. They party of hypocrisy strikes again. Republicans love to point at others and pass judgement, but they sure do have a problem with judging themselves by the same standard.

-------------------------------------------------------

Billionaire casino magnate Steve Wynn stepped down as CEO of Wynn Resorts, the company said Tuesday.

Wynn, who has donated millions to the Republican Party, was accused of sexual misconduct by several people who have worked at his Las Vegas casinos, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal in late January. The article detailed a pattern of behavior that spans decades and included accusations by employees that they were coerced by him to perform sex acts.

"It is with a collective heavy heart that the board of directors of Wynn Resorts today accepted the resignation of our founder, CEO and friend Steve Wynn," Boone Wayson, non-executive director of the board of directors, said in a statement.

People aren't racist, pills are.

Original Post

Did Republicans know about Wynn and keep taking his money like all of Weinsteins supporters? Did they cover for him like Weinstein's supporters? Wynn has denied the allegations, Weinstein always paid off, with money and movie parts, his "victims" and they covered for him and still clamored to be seen with him. They weren't interested in "outting"him until it became impossible not to do so. I don't think you can compare the two right now.

I've been looking to see who first reported Weinstein and it's not looking like it was any of his so called victims or the people that had "common knowledge" of the way he operated. Too, even with his actions being an "open secret" the women still flocked to him to "win his approval", wink, wink, and do whatever he wanted to secure parts and gain fame. Now that they are forced to talk about it they want to play the victim. They are prostitutes pure and simple, and they were paid for what they willingly gave up. Too bad they didn't go after bill clinton with the same fervor. He still gets away with it with the help of his biggest enabler/protector, hillary.

I wonder when Republicans will give back Wynn's money? Dollars to donuts they don't.

Why should they? Dems didn't give back Weinstein's money and they knew what he was doing. They covered for him.

And there you have it. Another uninformed Republican. Democrats donated Weinstein's money to charities. Republicans will keep Wynn's money and defend it till the bitter end.

And there you have it, another dem voicing his opinion and upset that he gets push back. Democrats didn't donate Weinstein's money to any charity, unless you count the clinton's phony charities.

Democratic National Committee itself stopped short of promising a full giveaway. The committee pledged "over $30,000" of Weinstein donations to political groups that work to elect women.

The only problem? The DNC had raised over $300,000 from Weinstein,

"They're keeping 90 percent of his donations;

Only $300,000? LOL! If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

Obama said Tuesday, after five days of pressure to condemn Weinstein, who had bundled over $600,000 for him in 2012, according to federal campaign reports.

“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated,” Clinton added in a statement of her own, distancing herself from the man who brought her 2016 presidential campaign over $1.4 million.

bawahahahahahahahaha

Pretty much what Trump stated in his Grab'em by the kitty spiel.  Not nice, but brutally honest.

Trump told the truth, he didn't advise anyone to grab anyone, he said the women were so intent on being next to money and power that they would let a man do it to them. He didn't lie, he just didn't know that the women that let men do those things would later lie about it and claim they were victims.

Ha Ha Ha. When this all started coming out about sexual harassment in Hollywood I thought that at least 50% of men in this country were sweating. And to who ever thinks women are prostitutes because they were abused or harassed and didn't say anything are just wrong. That was/is the culture in this country. Ask your female friends/family if they have ever had a man touch them inappropriately or say something sexual to them without their permission. It's a good old boys world.

Short list of sexual abusers of women, Islam, Harvey Weinstein,

B. Clinton, Carlos Danger, H. Clinton and assorted liberals.  

Democrats claim to be the party of women's rights, yet, Hillary and other Dems take millions from countries where women are considered men's property and are abused, oppressed, and even killed at men's whims. Then we have Huma, who has links to the Muslim Brotherhood. Huma, who is still with a man that goes after young girls. Huma, who was going to leave him when she thought she was going to the WH, but stayed with him when the country refused to put another Muslim in the WH. And some pretend to wonder why others call democrats hypocrites.

The Democrats are all to blame. The Republicans are all to blame. Yah, ok. Are you sitting behind your computer *****ing about others or are YOU doing anything to make this country a better place? Small things make a difference. I know people who don't complain and whine about the "other side". They just go out and do things for common ordinary people. Calling people names and whining about what people who you don't agree with doesn't do anything.

Let's beat this dead horse. Clinton and his wife are sleaze balls. Trump is Archie Bunker with more money but without the class. Liberals all want us to be communists. What are you doing to make this a better country? Sitting and *****ing at the computer doesn't count.

What are YOU doing besides sitting behind your computer talking **** about others? I've been reading your snide remarks. Who died and left you in charge of telling everyone else how they have to conduct themselves during discussions? I too know plenty of people who do things to make the country and other's lives better, and they STILL have opinions and are allowed to have and express them. You are a typical democrat. IF you can't control what people do and say, you get all haughty and start running them down and talking nonsense about what YOU think they should be doing and, OMG, how dare they be upset with the way things are going and the things the left does!!

You don't know what I am. I am an American that wants this world to be a better place. I vote Republican, Democrat, Liberal. I just try not to box people into 1 place. I am not an angry person who insists that everyone believe as I do. I never thought as my remarks as being snide. I think everyone is entitled to their opinion. Am I right? To me, yes. Are you right? Yes you are. To you. I just don't think belittling anyone accomplishes thing. 

PS, I think works done with no accolades are the best. People who work quietly with no fanfare. I don't have to tell you  what I do but I do try to make the world a better place. Calling people names and telling them they are wrong won't bring people to your side. I wish you well in your life.

I don't care who you are, I told you what I thought of your snide remarks. Your snide remark that anyone that expressing their opinion is "belittling" someone means nothing to me either.
