    CNBC director accused of spying on teenage nanny with bathroom cam

    A CNBC director who worked on finance guru Suze Orman’s show has been accused of peeping on his teenage au pair with a spy-cam in a bathroom of his Westchester home, the Daily News has learned.

    Dan Switzen, 44, hid a camera inside a tissue box in his home in Pleasantville, according to authorities.

    On Nov. 13, his 18-year-old live-in nanny invited two of her friends, also 18, over to the house and one of them discovered the camera in the bathroom, sources said.

    The horrified teens took the camera to Pleasantville police about 7:50 p.m. that night and cops found incriminating images on its memory card.

    Cops secured a search warrant, then arrested Switzen on a felony count of unlawful surveillance.

    “He intentionally installed a video recording device in a tissue box located in his family’s bathroom to surreptitiously view a person dressing or undressing...at a place and time when (the victim) had a reasonable expectation of privacy without (her) knowledge or consent,” the complaint filed in Pleasantview Village Court reads.

    Switzen was released without bail, said his lawyer, Jeffrey Chartier.

    “He's a very decent family man. I don't want to litigate these allegations in the press,” Chartier said. “We will defend him accordingly.”

    When reached over the phone, Switzen said, “No comment at all. Thanks, bye,” before hanging up.

    Switzen directed “The Suze Orman Show” on CNBC for more than a decade, and was most recently listed as a director for the network’s “Power Lunch” program.

    A CNBC spokeswoman declined to comment on Switzen’s arrest.

    The one thing preventing a total DC meltdown is the fact "they" are refusing to release the names of the politicians involved in the sexual harassment, etc payouts. "They" are releasing the actual dollar amounts, as "they" did a couple of days ago with an additional 1.5 million dollars. "They" are fighting tooth and nail to keep the actual names from being released. I think this will be the next "big battle," over sexual harassment in DC. When the actual names are released, I think we will see a whole bunch, some leaks are saying up to 50 DC politicians being "outed." In this environment there is no way any politician, Republican or Democrat, can survive being exposed as a sexual harasser who made cash settlements with their victims. Obviously, "they" realize this, and this is why the wagons are being circled. My personal opinion is if the names aren't released by November of 2018, ie the election, this will become a major campaign issue for any incumbent.

    Yep, the dikes are leaking. It is only a matter of time before they overflow and the politicians are outed.

    Prenda Law's Steele disbarred; six other IL lawyers also disbarred, nine suspended, IL Supreme Court says
    by Jonathan Bilyk
    May 19, 2017

    John L. Steele, a Chicago lawyer already indicted for his role in the Prenda Law shakedown scheme targeting downloaders of online porn, has been disbarred.

    On May 19, the Illinois Supreme Court announced its action against Steele, as well as six others who were disbarred by the court in attorney disciplinary orders handed down May 18. The court also suspended nine other attorneys and censured or reprimanded six more.


    In March, Steele, 45, had pleaded guilty in Minnesota federal court to charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and conspiracy to launder money. A release from the U.S. Department of Justice announcing Steele’s guilty plea, indicated Steele had most recently lived in Pennsylvania.

    Steele had been indicted in December 2016 along his former law partner Paul Hansmeier, of Minnesota.

    The indictment came as Steele also faced professional disciplinary actions in Illinois. The criminal and professional actions against Steele arose out of his actions through the firms of Steele Hansmeier PLLC, Prenda Law and other associated business entities to use the courts to allegedly orchestrate “an elaborate scheme to fraudulently obtain millions of dollars in copyright lawsuit settlements by deceiving state and federal courts throughout the country,” according to federal prosecutors.

    Steele and Hansmeier, with former law partner Paul Duffy, who is now deceased, launched their practice in 2011, centered on amassing relatively small settlements – typically amounting to a few thousand dollars per settlement – from an array of people around the country accused of illegally downloading copyrights online pornographic videos and movies, the rights to which the Prenda partners had acquired through several sham business entities incorporated in the West Indies.

    According to court documents, Steele and his Prenda partners would use the courts’ subpoena power to learn the names of people who had downloaded the porn content, and then allegedly extort settlement money from them in exchange for dropping the suit and allowing the targets to avoid “enormous financial penalties and public embarrassment.”

    In all, the Justice Department said Steele has admitted to using these tactics to extract settlements worth at least $6 million from those targeted through the Prenda lawsuits.

    In announcing Steele’s disbarment, the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission – the state body which oversees attorney discipline matters in Illinois – said Steele, who had been licensed in Illinois since 2007, was disbarred “on consent.”

    Also on May 19, the Illinois Supreme Court announced it has disbarred Chicago lawyer Richard C. Moenning.

    As the state ARDC launched disciplinary proceedings against him, Moenning also had been hit with an action from the Illinois Attorney General’s office, alleging he had failed to register a charitable trust with the Attorney General and failing to provide the state with annual reports, accounting for hundreds of thousands of dollars left by two elderly sisters after their deaths in 2008 and 2010. Moenning had served as trustee of the trust.

    Moenning had been licensed to practice law since 1962.

    The Illinois ARDC said Moenning had “paid himself over $360,000 in purported fees without performing sufficient services to justify the payment of the funds” and had either taken “years to notify or pay some of the trust beneficiaries” or had failed to pay some beneficiaries altogether.

    He had been suspended since June 2016.

    On May 18, the Illinois Supreme Court also disbarred attorney Alecia M. Schmuhl, of Warrenville. Schmul has pleaded guilty to partnering with her husband, attorney Andrew Schmuhl, to kidnap and torture a partner in her former law firm in Virginia, from which she had been fired. Andrew Schmuhl has also been suspended on an interim basis and until further order of the court, the ARDC said.

    Others disbarred on May 18 included:

    Francis J. Coyle Jr., of Rock Island, who the ARDC said had “intentionally misappropriated” $100,000 in a real estate deal;
    Craig A. Goode, of Chicago, who the ARDC said had “misrepresented the status” of litigation pending in federal and state courts to a client, had “submitted charges for work he did not do” and then “continued to use the client’s credit card number” after the client fired him;
    Laird J. Heal, of Sterling, Mass., who had also been disbarred in Massachusetts for “misusing over $13,000 of funds held in escrow in connection with a bankruptcy case;” and
    Irina Pavchinskaya, of Glenview, who had pleaded guilty to felony theft for allegedly presenting a fraudulent check for $1,960 purportedly from her law firm employer, as well as for allegedly forging other checks from her employer.
    In addition to the disbarments, the Illinois Supreme Court also announced it had suspended nine other attorneys.
    In addition to Andrew Schmuhl, those suspended include:

    William J. Meacham, of Edwardsville, suspended on an interim basis and until further order of the court, for allegedly misappropriating $32,000 of a client’s personal injury settlement funds, and then creating “false receipts falsely purporting to show that he had distributed most of the funds to the client;”
    Baltazar Mendoza, of Chicago, interim basis and until further order of the court, for allegedly misappropriating more than $243,000 from several clients;
    Debra J. Fickler, of Tonganoxie, Kan., 3 years, as reciprocal discipline after she had been similarly suspended from law practice in Kansas;
    Diana M. Wilkins, of Chicago, 2 years and until further order of the court, for allegedly misappropriating nearly $22,000 in client funds and making false statements to the ARDC during the subsequent investigation;
    Dennis B. Porick, of Joliet, 18 months for allegedly converting more than $10,000 from three separate clients who he represented in collection matters;
    Jeffrey M. Isaacson, of Deerfield, one year and until further order of the court, with suspension stayed after six months;
    Jay L. Miller, of Barrington, one year and until further order of the court, for allegedly converting about $85,000 of client funds; and
    Dalton Grief, of Addison, 9 months.
    The Illinois Supreme Court also either censured or reprimanded six other attorneys, including: Mark E. Broadus, of Chicago; Dmitry N. Feofanov, of Lyndon; Walter L. Henderson, of Tucson, Ariz.; Karlo M. Karacic, of Chicago; George Krasnik, of Chicago; and Everett Walton, of Wailuku, Hawaii.

    Star’s former publisher accused of assaulting reporters in 1970s

    8 hrs ago

    A former Anniston Star reporter says that H. Brandt Ayers, chairman of the company that publishes the paper, sexually assaulted her in the 1970s in The Star’s newsroom.

    Veronica Pike Kennedy says Ayers, then the newspaper’s publisher, spanked her against her will in an incident on a Saturday, when Ayers and Kennedy were among the few workers in the building.

    “I was still determined to be a reporter after that,” Kennedy said. “But I hated Brandy Ayers with every cell in my body.”

    In response to inquiries from The Star on Monday morning, Ayers issued a statement.

    “As a very young man with more authority than judgment, I did some things I regret,” Ayers said in the statement. “At my advanced age I wish I could relive those days again, knowing the seriousness of my position and with the accumulated judgment that goes with age.”

    Two other women who worked at The Star at the time told similar stories of spankings by the Star publisher, though each declined to have their names published, citing repercussions the revelations might have for their careers and family members.

    They say a pattern of forced spankings by the publisher, with sexual overtones, led women in the newsroom at the time to seek help from the newspaper’s editors – who appointed a woman on staff to warn newly-hired women to watch out for Ayers.

    The allegations were first reported on the website Alabama Political Reporter, first in a column by Kennedy’s husband Joey Kennedy, and on Monday in detail in a longer article.

    Veronica Pike, an Anniston native and Wellborn High School graduate, was a Jacksonville State University student in her early 20s when she first came to work at The Star as a news clerk, answering phones, delivering messages and writing obituaries.

    She said she and another Star reporter were in the newsroom on a Saturday morning when Ayers, then the newspaper’s publisher, approached her asked her to read an article he’d written, then told her she’d “been a bad girl” and needed to be spanked.

    “I started laughing, because I thought it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard,” she said. Kennedy said Ayers picked up a pica pole – a metal ruler used to measure the size of printed type – and tried to pull Kennedy out of her chair.

    “I was literally holding on to the chair,” Kennedy said. “He picked me and the chair up, and wrestled the chair out of my hands. And he started spanking me.”

    Kennedy was 22 at the time of the alleged spanking. Ayers turned 40 the same year.

    Mike Stamler, then 22 and in his first year as a Star reporter, said he witnessed the spanking from across the room. He said we wasn’t sure Ayers was aware he was in the room at the time.

    “I don’t think I did anything,” Stamler, now retired from a job as a spokesman for the Small Business Administration, said in a telephone interview. “I didn’t know what to do. I wasn’t expecting something like that to happen.”

    Stamler and Kennedy differ in some details of their account. Kennedy said in an interview last month that the incident occurred in 1973, on Stamler’s first weekend at The Star. Stamler started work at The Star in 1975, and he said the incident happened in his first year at the paper, but not his first day. But both say a pattern of similar incidents was well known in the newsroom at the time, and led to women at The Star seeking help from editors.

    Kennedy said she didn’t go public with her story at the time because she feared how her father, a war veteran, would react.

    “I knew I couldn’t say anything because my daddy would get his .38 and shoot Brandy in the head, and he’d be in prison for the rest of his life,” Kennedy said.

    Kennedy went on to write for The Star for two more years before becoming a spokeswoman for Regional Medical Center. In 1979 she went to work for the Talladega Daily Home — also owned by Consolidated Publishing —as an editor. She later wrote for the Birmingham News, and now edits the website Animal Advocates of Alabama.

    Ayers, then and now, was among the best-known figures in Anniston, and one of the best-known small-town newspapermen in the South. After taking over as editor, then publisher of the family-run paper in the 1960s, he steered the editorial page toward advocacy for integration – a rare stance for a Southern publication at the time.

    Ayers writes regular columns for the paper, but hasn’t had an active role in The Star’s newsroom for more than a decade. In 2016, he stepped down from his role as publisher, giving the title to Bob Davis, who was then associate publisher and editor.

    The current staff of The Star began looking into the story when Joey Kennedy, Veronica Kennedy’s husband, made mention of the incident in his regular column — without mentioning the publisher or the newspaper by name — in November.

    LA prosecutors weighing charges against James Toback

    Associated Press•January 3, 2018

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors in Los Angeles are weighing criminal charges in five cases against writer and director James Toback.

    Los Angeles County district attorney's office spokesman Greg Risling says Tuesday that prosecutors are reviewing two cases from the Los Angeles Police Department and three submitted by Beverly Hills police.

    Toback, who received an Oscar nomination for writing "Bugsy," has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women. Many of the women said Toback had promised them stardom and their meetings would end with sexual questions and Toback masturbating in front of them or simulating sexual intercourse with them.

    Toback has vehemently denied the allegations.

    The cases are being reviewed by a task force District Attorney Jackie Lacey established to handle any criminal complaints arising from the Hollywood scandal.

    Missouri governor admits affair, accused of blackmailing woman with photo

    Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has admitted to an extramarital affair and been accused of blackmailing his lover.

    The 43-year-old Republican, elected in 2016, met the woman when she cut his hair, according to a recording received by KMOV from the woman’s ex-husband.

    The husband, also not identified in the local report, said that the recording was made after one of the first sexual encounters in 2015.

    It featured the woman telling how Greitens did not want to meet her for coffee, but invited her to his house and at one point blindfolded her and taped her hands to an exercise apparatus after offering to teach her “how to do a perfect pull-up.”

    “He stepped back, I saw a flash through the blindfold and he said: "you're never going to mention my name, otherwise there will be pictures of me everywhere,” she said.

    Greitens allegedly later said that he deleted the picture, though the ex-husband, who said he had been contacted by law enforcement, told KMOV that the future governor, who declared his candidacy at the end of the year, was still in her life as their marriage disintegrated.

    The governor, who billed himself as a values-based family man, said in a statement that being unfaithful in his marriage was a “deeply personal mistake.”

    He thanked “God’s mercy” for helping his wife Sheena forgive him.

    “We have a loving marriage and an awesome family; anything beyond that is between us and God. I want the media and those who wish to peddle gossip to stay away from me and my children," Sheena Greitens said in a separate message.

    A lawyer for the governor, however, told the station that broke the report that it “contained multiple false allegations” and should not need the involvement of law enforcement.

    “There was no blackmail and that claim is false. This personal matter has been addressed by the Governor and Mrs. Greitens privately years ago when it happened. The outrageous claims of improper conduct regarding these almost three-year-ago events are false."

    13 January 2018

    Eliza Dushku accused one of Hollywood’s leading stunt coordinators, Joel Kramer, of sexually molesting her 25 years ago.

    The 37-year-old actress wrote a lengthy, detailed Facebook post on Saturday in which she alleges that Kramer took her to a hotel room in Miami when she was just 12 years old and ‘rubbed all over’ her body until he was ‘finished.’

    At the time, Dushku was starring in one of her first breakout roles alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1994 action flick True Lies.

    Kramer has denied the allegations.

    Dushku writes that she told her parents, one of her brothers, and two adult friends about what happened, but ‘no one seemed ready to confront this taboo subject then, nor was I.’

    The actress writes that before the alleged incident Kramer ‘made me feel special’ and ‘methodically built my and my parents’ trust’ by ‘grooming me’ for months.

    ‘[H]e lured me to his Miami hotel room with a promise to my parent that he would take me for a swim at the stunt crew’s hotel pool and for my first sushi meal thereafter,’ she writes.

    Kramer then ‘disappeared in the bathroom and emerged, naked, bearing nothing but a small hand towel held flimsy at his mid-section,’ according to Dushku.

    ‘I remember how he laid me down on the bed, wrapped me with his gigantic writhing body, and rubbed all over me,’ she writes.

    ‘He spoke these words: “You’re not going to sleep on me now sweetie, stop pretending you’re sleeping,” as he rubbed harder and faster against my catatonic body.

    ‘When he was “finished”, he suggested, “I think we should be careful…,” [about telling anyone] he meant. I was 12, he was 36.’

    Dushku also alleges that after the alleged incident in the hotel Kramer ‘put me on his lap’ and ‘clutched me’ while they were both in the backseat of a taxicab.

    She writes that the cab driver ‘stared at me in the rear view mirror’ and that ‘my eyes never left the driver’s eyes during that long ride’ in Miami.

    Dushku also alleges that after the alleged assault Kramer ‘grew cold with me in the ensuing weeks.’

    She writes that after an adult female friend of hers in whom she confided confronted Kramer about his behavior, Dushku was injured in a ‘stunt-gone-wrong’.

    Dushku writes that it was ‘no small coincidence’ that she suffered broken ribs as a result of the accident given that it was Kramer who was ‘responsible for my safety on a film that broke new ground for action films.’

    ‘My life was literally in his hands: he hung me in the open air, from a tower crane, atop an office tower, 25+ stories high,’ Dushku writes.

    ‘Whereas he was supposed to be my protector, he was my abuser.’

    Dushku also writes that Kramer had given her ‘over-the-top special attention’ by nicknaming her ‘Jailbait’ – doing so in a ‘sick flirty way in front of others’.

    Nobody on the set of the movie thought it was necessary to speak up, Dushku writes.

    The actress writes that she decided to come forward after learning recently that Kramer ‘still works at the top of the industry.’

    ‘And a few weeks ago, I found an internet photo of Joel Kramer hugging a young girl,’ she writes.

    ‘That image has haunted me near nonstop since. I can no longer hide what happened.’

    Kramer has worked either as a stunt double for Schwarzenegger or a stunt coordinator on a number of his films, including Commando, Predator, Raw Deal, Total Recall, Last Action Hero, and the Terminator movies, according to IMBD.

    Kramer told Variety on Saturday that Dushku’s allegations were 'absolutely not true.'

    He claims Dushku swam in the hotel pool with him and other members of the stunt crew, including Dushku’s stunt double.

    Afterwards, he took her to her first ever sushi meal, and then took her home.

    Kramer told Variety he was 'taken aback' and 'floored' by the allegations.

    He claims he 'never molested her' and was 'never nude in front of her.'

    'This whole talk of luring her to my room, on top of her, getting off, holding her in the car and calling her jailbait is just outright hyperbole and lies,' he said.

    Kramer told Variety that another person on the set told him that Dushku was 'always asking questions' about him.

    He said that led him to believe he needed to 'handle her with kid gloves.'

    'I did kiss her on the cheek once to say goodnight to her, gave her a hug,' he said.

    'We treated her like family, she was part of our crew.'

    Kramer insisted the allegations were 'absurd' and said that it would not have made any sense for him to do the things he is accused of.

    'Who in their right mind would do something like that, when you’re a high-profile coordinator on a shoot like that with months left of shooting?' he said.

    On Facebook, Dushku's mother writes that she accepts criticism from people who say that she should have done more to either protect her daughter or confront Kramer.

    One Facebook user wrote: 'I'm so sorry but as a parent it was your parent's responsibility to do something...They allowed you to go back to work knowing your life was in his hands.

    'And even after the incident they said nothing.'

    Judith Dushku, Eliza's mother, agreed with the criticism.

    'I accept your condemnation as Eliza's mother,' she wrote. 'I was afraid of Joel Kramer, too. And it was years later that I finally understood fully what really happened.'

    'At the time, Eliza was too scared to tell the whole story and in a way I think she protected me from knowing because she knew how frightened I was of the powerful men on the set.'

    David Copperfield Accused of Drugging, Assaulting 17-Year-Old Model in 1988 (Exclusive)

    “Always listen, and consider everything carefully,” Copperfield tweeted Wednesday. “But please, for everyone’s sake, don’t rush to judgment.”

    January 24, 2018



    Brittney Lewis was a 17-year-old model with dreams of becoming the next Elle Macpherson when, she says, magician David Copperfield drugged and sexually assaulted her.

    It happened in 1988, Lewis said, after she competed in a modeling contest in which Copperfield was a judge. The photos above are from a videotape of the event obtained by TheWrap.

    TheWrap spoke to Lewis’ best friend from high school, husband, ex-husband, and grandmother — her primary caretaker at the time — all of whom said Lewis told them decades ago about her accusations against Copperfield. A chiropractor said Lewis told her about the accusations three years ago, and Lewis said she reported them to the FBI in 2007. She said she is not seeking money from the magician or others.

    Copperfield’s lawyer, publicist, and manager did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday. But on Wednesday, Copperfield issued a statement on Twitter expressing support for the #MeToo movement while saying that he has been falsely accused in the past, and is about to “weather another storm.”

    “Always listen, and consider everything carefully,” he wrote. “But please, for everyone’s sake, don’t rush to judgment.”

    Look of the Year


    Lewis said she met Copperfield soon after arriving in Atami, Japan, site of the “Look of the Year” modeling contest held by Elite Model Management in September of 1988.

    Copperfield, one of the judges, was a superstar of magic after a decade of spectacular tricks that included making the Statue of Liberty disappear and then reappear and levitating over the Grand Canyon. His high-flying life would eventually include a reported $4 billion in ticket sales and relationships with models Claudia Schiffer and Chloe Gosselin.

    Lewis said that soon after the “Look of the Year” contest, when she returned home to Utah, Copperfield invited her to one of his upcoming shows in California.

    Since Lewis was still a minor, Copperfield asked permission from her grandmother, Patricia Burton, Lewis and Burton told TheWrap.

    Burton said she was apprehensive at first.

    “He said, ‘Don’t worry, I’ll take care of her,” Burton said. “I believed him. He was very charming.”

    She said Copperfield promised that Lewis would be accompanied at all times and that she would be staying in a separate hotel room from his.

    Lewis said she traveled to California. She believes the city was San Diego, but admits she isn’t certain after nearly three decades. TheWrap found newspaper reports of two Copperfield shows in San Diego in early December of 1988.

    The trip started splendidly, she said: Copperfield, 32 at the time, took her shopping and introduced her to his team with great fanfare. She said she was flattered but made it clear she was not looking for anything romantic. When Copperfield tried to hold her hand at one point, she politely declined, telling him they were “just friends,” she said.

    Burton said Lewis called her and said Copperfield used a pseudonym when checking them into the hotel: “Simon Templar,” a fictional character from the 1960s TV show “The Saint.“

    “She said it was so exciting and they treated her so nice,” Burton said. “He pushed everyone out of the way when he escorted her.”

    After the show, Lewis said, Copperfield invited her to a bar. She said she had barely touched her drink when she noticed him pouring something into her glass.

    “I asked, ‘What are you doing?’ and he said, ‘Oh, I’m just sharing,'” Lewis said.

    She said she took a few sips after that and blacked out. The rest is hazy. She said she remembers bits and pieces of that night, mostly flashes of herself being carried out to a cab, and him inside her hotel room wearing a black robe with shoulder pads. She said she remembers him on top of her, kissing her, and his breath smelling bad. She said her room was connected to his by a door.

    “I remember my clothes being taken off,” she said. “He was kissing my face and then I remember him starting to go down on my body with his face, and then, as soon as he started going down, I just completely blacked out.”

    The next morning, she said, she woke up feeling sick and nauseated. Copperfield came in through the connecting door shortly after, she said.

    “He wanted to me know that nothing happened because I was underage,” she said. “He said: ‘I didn’t enter you.'”

    “There was no fluid but he could have had a condom,” she added.

    Even though she wasn’t due back home for a couple of days, she said Copperfield suggested it was “best” if she went back that day. Lewis said she was relieved.

    Her grandmother said she knew immediately that “something was wrong” when she called to say she would be home early.

    She said that before she left, Copperfield made her write a letter saying she was okay.

    “My therapist later told me that he made me write a contract to keep me quiet,” she said.

    She got a call from one of Copperfield’s assistants a few months later, she said, informing her that Copperfield was going to be in Utah for a performance and asking whether she’d like tickets to his show. She said she told the assistant she didn’t want to ever see Copperfield again.

    ‘Falsely Accused Publicly in the Past’

    In 2007, former beauty queen Lacey Carroll accused Copperfield of sexually assaulting her after whisking her to his $50 million private island in the Bahamas.

    The FBI investigated Copperfield for two years and even raided Copperfield’s Las Vegas warehouse. The case was eventually closed with no official explanation, and Carroll dropped a civil lawsuit against Copperfield.

    Carroll was later charged with prostitution and making false sexual assault accusations against another man, in Washington state. In that case, she pleaded guilty to a charge of obstructing a police officer in 2010 and was ordered to pay a $953 fine, complete 30 hours of community service and attend an alcohol-awareness class.

    After the investigation closed, Copperfield told Oprah Winfrey during an interview: “I was the victim.”

    “To be falsely accused of something horrendous is devastating for yourself, your friends, your family, really bad,” he told Winfrey. “I’m working on forgiveness.”

    Copperfield elaborated in his statement Wednesday, saying he had been “falsely accused publicly in the past”:



    I’ve lived with years of news reports about me being accused of fabricated, heinous acts, with few telling the story of the accuser getting arrested, and my innocence. Knowing that false accusers can negatively impact the believability of others and are a true disservice to those who have been victims of sexual misconduct, I didn’t draw attention to it.

    Lewis said she contacted the FBI soon after seeing reports of the investigation around 2007 in the hopes that her story could help other women. She said an agent took her statement for more than an hour.

    A spokeswoman for the FBI declined to comment. Lewis and TheWrap filed a Freedom of Information Act request asking for a copy of Lewis’ statement, but has not heard back.

    ‘Panic Attack’

    TheWrap also talked to a chiropractor who treated Lewis, Dr. Kaisa Coppola. Coppola, who spoke to TheWrap at Lewis’ request, said she began treating Lewis in June of 2014 for lower back pain and digestive issues, but said it soon became evident that Lewis’ medical issues were “absolutely related” to her encounter with Copperfield.

    “As a doctor I can tell you that pain has created ripples of health effects,” Coppola said. “When you are taken advantage of at such a young age, it’s going to produce a hormonal reaction that is then going to have continued effects. it’s going to create a trauma reaction which will then trigger Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.”

    “Even talking about it the other day, she had a full-blown panic attack,” Coppola told TheWrap.

    Statute of Limitations

    Lewis said she has no plans to pursue a criminal or civil suit against Copperfield, but even if she wanted to the statute of limitations would prevent her, said a legal expert.

    Steve Cron, a Santa Monica criminal defense attorney and law professor at Pepperdine University who is not involved with the situation, told TheWrap: “In cases where a minor was assaulted sexually, the statute of limitations extends to one year from the moment it was first reported.”

    He said Lewis’ year to report began when she spoke to the FBI in 2007.

    TheWrap reached out to Copperfield’s attorney, manager, and publicist on Tuesday with detailed questions about Lewis’ account, and has yet to hear any response. But Wednesday afternoon, Copperfield tweeted the following:

    Lets add Steve Wynn (Weinberg)

    Dozens of People Recount Pattern of Sexual Misconduct by Las Vegas Mogul Steve Wynn

    Wynn Resorts employees and others described a CEO who sexualized his workplace and pressured workers to perform sex acts. Mr. Wynn responded: ‘The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous.’

    Jan. 26, 2018 2:36 p.m. ET

    LAS VEGAS—Not long after the billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn opened his flagship Wynn Las Vegas in 2005, a manicurist who worked there arrived at the on-site salon visibly distressed following an appointment in Mr. Wynn’s office.

    Sobbing, she told a colleague Mr. Wynn had forced her to have sex, and she repeated that to others later.

    After she gave Mr. Wynn a manicure, she said, he pressured her to take her clothes off and told her to lie on the massage table he kept in his office suite, according to people she gave the account to. The manicurist said she told Mr. Wynn she didn’t want to have sex and was married, but he persisted in his demands that she do so, and ultimately she did disrobe and they had sex, the people remember her saying.

    After being told of the allegations, the woman’s supervisor said she filed a detailed report to the casino’s human-resources department recounting the episode.

    Mr. Wynn later paid the manicurist a $7.5 million settlement, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The incident was referenced, in broad terms, in a lawsuit in which Mr. Wynn’s ex-wife, Elaine Wynn, seeks to lift restrictions on the sale of her stock in Wynn Resorts Ltd. WYNN -10.26% Attorneys for Mr. Wynn in a court filing admitted he made the personal payment; in a later hearing, his corporate attorney said there had been “allegations of assault.” Court records in the suit are heavily redacted. Specifics of the allegation and the size of the settlement haven’t been previously reported.

    Beyond this incident, dozens of people The Wall Street Journal interviewed who have worked at Mr. Wynn’s casinos told of behavior that cumulatively would amount to a decadeslong pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Wynn. Some described him pressuring employees to perform sex acts.

    In response to written questions about the manicurist’s and others’ allegations, Mr. Wynn said, “The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous.”

    He continued, in a written statement, “We find ourselves in a world where people can make allegations, regardless of the truth, and a person is left with the choice of weathering insulting publicity or engaging in multi-year lawsuits. It is deplorable for anyone to find themselves in this situation.”

    Mr. Wynn said that “the instigation of these accusations is the continued work of my ex-wife Elaine Wynn, with whom I am involved in a terrible and nasty lawsuit in which she is seeking a revised divorce settlement.” He said he remained focused on the company, its employees and its shareholders.

    Ms. Wynn declined to speak to the Journal. An attorney for Ms. Wynn said the notion she instigated the Journal’s article “is just not true.”

    Mr. Wynn didn’t provide further response to other allegations of sexual misconduct the Journal inquired about.

    Wynn Resorts said it is committed to maintaining a safe and respectful culture, requires annual anti-harassment training for all, and offers an anonymous hotline. “Since the inception of the company, not one complaint was made to that hotline regarding Mr. Wynn,” the company said.

    Mr. Wynn, turning 76 on Saturday, is a towering figure in Las Vegas and the wider gambling industry. As builder of the Mirage, Treasure Island, Bellagio, Wynn and Encore casinos in Las Vegas—lavish, multiuse resorts with features such as artificial volcanoes, dancing fountains and French chefs—he brought a new level of sophistication and scale to the Strip.

    Mr. Wynn no longer owns the Mirage, Treasure Island or Bellagio, but his empire now includes two casinos bearing his name in the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau, and he is building a $2.4 billion Wynn casino in the Boston area. He is the chairman and chief executive of Wynn Resorts.

    Dozens of powerful men have faced consequences in recent months after publicly aired accusations of sexual improprieties. Those against Mr. Wynn are the first in this wave to center on the CEO and founder of a major publicly held company, in this case one operating in a tightly regulated industry.

    Mr. Wynn owns nearly 12% of Wynn Resorts, a stake worth $2.4 billion, and is considered integral to its success. His signature is the company logo. In a recent securities filing citing possible risks to the business, the company said, “If we lose the services of Mr. Wynn, or if he is unable to devote sufficient attention to our operations for any other reason, our business may be significantly impaired.”

    Mr. Wynn’s political profile also has grown. He is a former casino-business rival of President Donald Trump, who said in 2016 that Mr. Wynn was a “great friend” whose advice he valued. After Mr. Trump’s election, Mr. Wynn became the Republican National Committee’s finance chairman.

    Mr. Wynn is a regular on his casino floors, known for a keen attention to details and what employees say is a temper that can flare when they fall short. He has frequently had services such as manicures, massages and makeup application performed in his on-site office at the Wynn Las Vegas.

    The contrast between Mr. Wynn’s position and that of the salon and spa employees is stark. Former employees said their awareness of Mr. Wynn’s power in Las Vegas, combined with the knowledge that the jobs they held were among the best-paying available there, added up to a feeling of dependence and intimidation when Mr. Wynn made requests of them.

    Some said that feeling was heightened at times by the presence in a confined office space of one or more of his German shepherds, trained to respond to commands in German.

    The Journal contacted more than 150 people who work or had worked for Mr. Wynn; none reached out to the Journal on their own. Most of those who spoke to the Journal about Mr. Wynn said they worried that doing so could hurt their ability to work elsewhere because of his influence in the casino industry and the state.

    Former employees said they sometimes entered fake appointments in the books to help other female workers get around a request for services in Mr. Wynn’s office or arranged for others to pose as assistants so they wouldn’t be alone with him. They told of female employees hiding in the bathroom or backrooms when they learned he was on the way to the salon.

    “Everybody was petrified,” said Jorgen Nielsen, a former artistic director at the salon. Mr. Nielsen said he and others repeatedly told high-level company executives Mr. Wynn’s sexual advances were causing a problem, but “nobody was there to help us.”

    One former massage therapist at the Wynn Las Vegas spa said that several years ago, when Mr. Wynn was booking multiple appointments a week with her in the private massage room in his office suite, he would continually adjust a towel to expose himself. Then at one session, she said, he threw it off and said, “Just get this thing off of me.”

    She said he wouldn’t let her use a towel to cover his genitals after that, contrary to state licensing regulations, and he also began rubbing her leg while she massaged him.

    After a few weeks, the former employee said, Mr. Wynn instructed her to massage his penis to climax. “Don’t ignore it anymore,” he said, according to her recollection. The woman said that because he was her boss, she felt she had no choice but to agree to some of Mr. Wynn’s requests, including that one. She said masturbating him became a frequent part of the massage sessions for several months.

    At the end of each hourlong massage session, she said, he handed her $1,000 in cash, which was the same amount as before the sexual activity began.

    In subsequent sessions, the woman said, Mr. Wynn asked her to perform oral sex on him and described in detail how he wanted it done. This request she refused, she said.

    The woman said she told Mr. Wynn at a later session she was uncomfortable with his requests, and he then stopped asking for massages from her.

    She said she didn’t tell anyone what happened at the time because she was embarrassed, adding she is still trying to deal with the incident emotionally. She did tell a colleague in a general way that Mr. Wynn had been inappropriate with her, that colleague recalled in an interview.

    The colleague said she offered advice to the massage therapist—but didn’t mention that Mr. Wynn had also made advances toward her while she massaged him in his office’s private massage room. The colleague said in an interview Mr. Wynn would remove his towel and, while she massaged the front of his thighs, would tell her to “go higher,” which she understood to mean touch his genitals. She said she told him this made her uncomfortable, and then his requests for massages became less frequent.

    Dennis Gomes, who was an executive at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas when Mr. Wynn was running that casino decades ago, said in a deposition in an early-1990s lawsuit that Mr. Gomes “routinely received complaints from various department heads regarding Wynn’s chronic sexual harassment of female employees,” according to a court filing that summarized his testimony.

    In the suit over Mr. Gomes’s departure to work for a Trump casino, Mr. Gomes described what he called a “disgraceful pattern of personal and professional conduct” that he said included Mr. Wynn’s directing him to get the home phone numbers of casino cocktail waitresses.

    Mr. Wynn denied the allegations in the suit in Nevada state court. The parties agreed to drop the suit in 1994.

    Mr. Gomes died in 2012. His widow, Barbara Gomes, in an interview for this article, said, “I remember him saying, ‘I’m not his pimp,’ ” referring to Mr. Wynn.

    Shawn Cardinal, who was a personal assistant to Elaine Wynn while she was married to Mr. Wynn, said that around 1987, Mr. Wynn repeatedly asked her to spend time with him outside of work. She said he continued asking, often approaching her at her desk outside his wife’s office, despite her telling him she had plans with her husband and child.

    On the phone, he would ask, “What are you wearing? Why don’t you hang out with me after work?” said Ms. Cardinal. “I was not brave enough to say, ‘How dare you?’ I just joked my way out of it and I made sure I was never alone with him.”

    Several former employees said Mr. Wynn often walked around some areas of the complex in extremely short shorts without underwear, and he would sit in the salon to get pedicures in such a way that his genitals were exposed.

    One former employee said after she had performed services in Mr. Wynn’s office for years, one day he asked if he could kiss her. She said she laughed off the request, hoping to leave without upsetting him.

    Another time, this employee said, she was performing services in her own workplace at the casino when Mr. Wynn said, “So when are you going to come into my office and f— me?”

    She said that she again laughed off the proposition. “I would say, ‘Oh Mr. Wynn.’ ” she recalled. “I was just trying to get on with my job.”

    One time as she did her work in Mr. Wynn’s office, this woman said, he repeatedly rubbed his genitals, which were falling out of his shorts, and made comments about things he would like to do with her sexually. On one occasion as she was leaving his office, the former employee said, Mr. Wynn grabbed her waist as she stood against a wall and told her to kiss him. She said she slipped out of his hold and left.

    After around two weeks of pursuit, this woman said, Mr. Wynn stopped.

    The former employee’s supervisor and another colleague confirmed being told of these advances in detail at the time. The employee and the supervisor said they sought to manage the situation rather than report it because they believed there would be repercussions if they did.

    The 2005 allegations of the manicurist that led to the settlement were the most striking described by former employees. In this instance, a woman who was a salon manager at the time said she filed a written report to human resources. She said she got a call from an executive, Doreen Whennen, castigating her for filing to HR and saying she should have taken the matter directly to Ms. Whennen.

    The former manager said no one followed up with her about the matter. The manicurist soon left.

    Ms. Whennen, who is no longer at the company, declined to comment.

    In the lawsuit between the Wynns, Ms. Wynn cited a “multimillion dollar payment” made by Mr. Wynn following allegations he had engaged in “serious misconduct” on company property against an employee not named in the suit. A filing said Ms. Wynn had learned of the settlement in 2009.

    In the suit, Ms. Wynn, who is a co-founder and former board member of Wynn Resorts, is seeking to free herself from restrictions on the control of her estimated $1.9 billion of stock that were imposed by a 2010 agreement with Mr. Wynn.

    Her attorneys have argued that in making a settlement with a former employee without telling the board, Mr. Wynn recklessly exposed the company and other directors to liability.

    Wynn Resorts, in its statement to the Journal, alleged that Ms. Wynn was trying to “tarnish the reputation of Mr. Wynn in an attempt to pressure a revised divorce settlement.” The company called it noteworthy that despite knowing of the allegations since 2009, Ms. Wynn didn’t make them known to the board, of which she was a member, or raise them until after she lost her board seat.

    An attorney for Ms. Wynn said she raised the issue internally when she learned of it.

    Mr. Wynn’s attorneys have argued the settlement wasn’t relevant to the Wynns’ dispute, which is headed for a trial this spring.
