More sex allegations emerge against Las Vegas billionaire Steve Wynn

Billionaire Steve Wynn faced allegations of pressuring a waitress into sex about 30 years ago. He allegedly told the woman he had “never had a grandmother before” and wanted “to see how it feels,” according to a court document and interviews with the Review-Journal. Wynn, the CEO of Wynn Resorts, was accused of sexual misconduct with several employees in a Wall Street Journal story published last week. Wynn has denied the allegations in the Journal report. The woman, who is now 75, said her supervisor told her she had to have sex with Wynn to keep her job at the Mirage, according to her account and a sworn statement by Earlene Wiggins. Wynn, 76, has not responded to multiple requests from the Review-Journal for an interview.
