US casino mogul Steve Wynn has resigned as finance chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) amid sexual harassment allegations.

A Wall Street Journal report on Friday(Jan.26) alleged that the 76-year-old billionaire harassed massage therapists and forced one staff member to have sex with him.

Wynn has denied wrongdoing, calling the stories "preposterous".

RNC chair Ronna McDaniel told US media she had accepted his resignation.

Wynn has blamed his ex-wife, whom he is fighting in court, for the "slander".
