What Goes Around,,,,,,,,

Will RNC return Steve Wynn’s donations after calling on DNC to return Harvey Weinstein’s?

Casino owner Steve Wynn would not say Friday whether he planned to resign from his role as finance chairman of the Republican National Committee after a report detailing decades of alleged sexual misconduct, The Washington Post reported Friday.

The onetime business rival of Donald Trump was a supporter of the president’s 2016 campaign before taking on a leadership role in the Republican Party. He was also a vice chair of Trump's inauguration committee.

The Wall Street Journal report included interviews with dozens of people who have worked at Wynn’s casinos or had been told of his alleged behavior, including allegations that he pressured some employees to perform sex acts.

Wynn isn't just an RNC official; he's also a big donor. He has given more than $1.5 million to various Republican Party committees and candidates in the past five years, with a donation of more than $450,000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee in the 2016 cycle, The Post's Ed O'Keefe reported. He's also made smaller donations to Democrats.

If the story of a well-connected political donor accused of sexual harassment sounds familiar, that's because it is.

After allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein surfaced, GOP leaders and lawmakers called on the Democratic National Committee to return contributions he made to Hillary Clinton's campaign.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

Let's go out on a limb here and predict there will be no plea for the RNC to return contributions made by Wynn.

I’m gonna say no they won’t, and you won’t hear talking heads on Fox “News” voicing their outrage over Wynn’s alleged sexual abuses and his financial ties to the RNC.

Wynn appeared and made a speech at a republican fundraiser last week that was held at Mar-a-Lago
