Steve Wynn, Hotel Mogul and Trump ally, resigned as head of his resort company amid multiple sexual assault allegations.

Trump ally and wealthy Republican donor Steve Wynn resigned from his position as chairman and chief executive of his travel company, Wynn Resorts this Tuesday. Wynn has been the subject of a maelstrom of sexual assault allegations, some say stretch back decades. In a prepared statement, Wynn said that his stepping down was the result of “an avalanche of negative publicity.”

Wynn has been accused of and had settled several sexual abuse claims. Victims have said that he raped them, demanded they disrobe, and masturbate in front of him. The allegations forced him to step down as finance chairman of the Republican National Committee in January. The University of Pennsylvania also revoked his honorary degree. Gaming commissions in Nevada and Massachusetts have pledged to open investigations on his activities.

Wynn, also resigned from Wynn Macau which operates in China. Regulators have also inquired about looking into his activities there as well.
