Steve Wynn in Massachusetts in 2016.

In 1995, John L. Smith published the book, “ Running Scared: The Life and Treacherous Times of Las Vegas Casino King Steve Wynn.”

In the book, Smith explores Wynn’s relationship with organized crime in Las Vegas, and his relationship with shady Wall Street dealers like Michael Milkin.

He also explores Wynn’s sexual behavior with women in his casinos.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that dozens of women who used to work for Wynn have stepped forward to allege that he sexually harassed or assaulted them.

John says he was not surprised by last week's Wall Street Journal report.
