Massachusetts Casino Regulators Reviewing Wynn Allegations

Jan 31, 2018

Massachusetts gambling regulators held a special meeting Wednesday to discuss sexual misconduct allegations against casino mogul Steve Wynn, whose company is building a $2.4 billion resort casino outside Boston.

   The state’s five gaming commissioners said they were disturbed by the allegations reported last week by the Wall Street Journal.

   Chairman Stephen Crosby vowed that the commission’s own investigators will work quickly and diligently to uncover the facts.

    "The public has a right to know. The people of Massachusetts have a right to know what the hell happened here and no punches pulled good, bad, or indifferent," said Crosby.

   A Commission investigator says information about a $7.5 million settlement was kept from Massachusetts officials when they were reviewing the suitability of Wynn in 2013 as his company sought a casino license in the state.

   Wynn has denied the allegations.
