STEFANIK KEEPS STEVE WYNN CASH COMPARES HASHTAG TO SEXUAL ASSAULT
CANTON—Congressional Candidate Tedra Cobb yesterday, called on Cong. Elise Stefanik to return contributions from casino mogul Steve Wynn, who is accused of multiple egregious acts of sexual assault and harassment. Instead of returning the funds like many other prominent Republicans, Stefanik doubled down, comparing sexual assault to a mean Twitter hashtag. These allegations were first reported by the Wall Street Journal and caused the Nevada Gaming Control Board to launch an investigation and the RNC to force Wynn to resign as Finance Chair. Wynn’s own shareholders have filed lawsuits because of his horrific actions.
“Stefanik is comparing being called a mean name on Twitter – an act which we immediately denounced – to disturbing, serious and credible accusations of rape, harassment, indecent exposure – many of them made by workers in Wynn’s resort,” said Cobb campaign staffer Cierra DeVos. “Stefanik may claim to be a champion for women, but her behavior proves she just doesn’t get it.”
