DNC Responds to Allegations of Sexual Assault Against RNC Finance Chairman Steve Wynn
January 26, 2018
In response to allegations of sexual misconduct against RNC Finance Chair Steve Wynn, DNC Deputy Communications Director Sabrina Singh released the following statement:
“In the exact words of RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, ‘If you stand for treating women well and you stand for the respect of women, you shouldn't take money from somebody who treated women with the absolute highest level of disrespect.’ Instead, the RNC and Ronna McDaniel have helped fund the campaign of an alleged child molester, blindly supported the GOP’s attacks on women’s health, supported a President who has been accused of sexual misconduct by over a dozen women – and now they remain silent amid sexual assault allegations involving Steve Wynn, one of their party’s most senior officials.
“This is the Republican Party. This is the party of Donald Trump, Roy Moore, Joe Arpaio and Trent Franks. Democrats will refuse to stand by while the Republican Party denigrates women. We will continue to march side by side with women all across this country because we believe that women must be empowered and respected.”
