The Republican Party in April accepted two large donations from disgraced casino mogul Steve Wynn, who resigned from his company and the Republican National Committee last year after he faced several sexual misconduct allegations, Politico reported Friday.

Wynn donated $248,500 to the RNC and $150,000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee last month, two people “familiar with the contributions” told Politico.

The casino mogul resigned from his role as RNC finance director in January 2018, and he stepped down as CEO of his company a few days later.

Several women accused Wynn of a pattern of sexual misconduct, including his employees. Two other women also accused Wynn of rape. At the time that the allegations surfaced, Wynn vehemently denied them.
