Massachusetts Gaming Commission is intensifying their investigation of the charges of sexual misconduct against Steven Wynn, the now-departed chairman of Wynn Resorts.
The Boston Herald reports commission has authorised a consultant to conduct an inquiry into whether the scandal has impacted the financial stability of Wynn Resorts.
The company is constructing a $2.4 billion resort casino in Everett, just outside of Boston.
The commission began a review of Wynn’s suitability for the project after the allegations involving Steve Wynn surfaced in January.
The consultant, HLT Advisory, has previously worked with state regulators. The Canadian firm provided financial and economic analysis that contributed to Wynn’s selection for the only resort casino license in Eastern Massachusetts.
The new contract is initially valued at $30,000.
