RNC deputy finance chair resigns after reports of $1.6 million payment to Playboy Playmate

- April 13, 2018

GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy has stepped down as Republican National Committee deputy finance chair, according to three people familiar with the matter.

The departure followed reports on Friday afternoon that in 2017, President Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen had negotiated a $1.6 million payment on Broidy’s behalf to a Playboy Playmate who said that Broidy had impregnated her.

The resignation was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
