WASHINGTON -- Casino mogul Steve Wynn has resigned as finance chairman of the Republican National Committee amid allegations of sexual harassment and assault. 


Wynn has been a prolific Republican donor and led the RNC's fundraising efforts during President Donald Trump's first year. 


RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement Saturday that she accepted Wynn's resignation. 


The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that a number of women said they were harassed or assaulted by Wynn, the chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts. 


Wynn has denied the allegations.
