Republican politicians are being urged to return millions of dollars donated by Steve Wynn, the Las Vegas casino mogul engulfed in allegations of sexual harassment and assault.
The 76-year-old billionaire has contributed nearly $2.4 million to candidates and party organisations since 2013 but was forced to resign as finance chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) on Saturday after The Wall Street Journal alleged that he harassed massage therapists and forced one staff member to have sex with him.
He has denied all the allegations.
However, his resignation has not eased pressure on Republicans – or the GOP – to return campaign contributions.
Scott Dworkin, co-founder of the Democratic Coalition, said on Twitter: “Steve Wynn is resigning as finance chair for the Republican Party. When are all GOPers gonna return or donate all the money they took from Wynn?”
Not only has Mr Wynn contributed his own money but he also led RNC fundraising efforts during President Donald Trump’s first year in office, helping raise more than $130 million.
The RNC has not yet said if it will return any money donated by Mr Wynn.
Mr Wynn is chief executive of Wynn Resorts, which business group which includes a hotel and casino in Las Vegas that bears his name.
In his resignation statement, he described the allegations as a “distraction”.
“I thank the president for the opportunity to serve and wish him continued success," he said.
