    Misconduct Allegations Spark Questions About Everett Casino

    The misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn have some wondering if it will affect the Wynn Boston Harbor, the luxury resort and casino under construction in Everett.

    (Published Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018)

    Wynn Resorts is "absolutely" considering renaming its planned Boston-area casino as founder Steve Wynn faces allegations of sexual misconduct.

    The Boston Herald reports Wynn Boston Harbor President Robert DeSalvio said Thursday a rebranding of the $2.4 billion project in Everett, Massachusetts, is "under active consideration." He says an announcement will come later.

    Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, Democratic state Attorney General Maura Healey and other state leaders have said a name change should be considered, but company officials had previously pushed back on the notion.

    DeSalvio made the comments after casino officials gave their first public update on the project since the misconduct allegations surfaced in January.

    Massachusetts Gaming Commission Executive Director Edward Bedrosian also says commission investigators should complete their inquiry into the allegations by the summer.
