Democratic Gov Candidate Brags About Sexual Escapades to Save Oppo Researchers Time

Ohio Supreme Court justice 'on behalf of all heterosexual males' posts on Facebook about sexual history

The post was immediately attacked as inappropriate and led to calls for his ouster.

"As a candidate for Governor let me save my opponents some research time", O'Neill continued.

Candidate and former U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton said "I'm outraged he would equate sexual assault with indiscretion". She also plans to give O'Neill's past campaign donations to organizations helping women.

"We're having a serious national conversation about rape culture and sexual harassment, and it's crucial for men to take time to listen to women and consider their experiences and insights", Pepper wrote on Twitter, adding: "Justice O'Neill's Facebook comments both dehumanize women and do nothing but trivialize this important conversation, which is actually about harassment and abuse, not encounters between consenting adults".

In contrast, the OH supreme court's chief justice condemned her colleague for expressing "gross disrespect for women", and his opponents have called for his resignation.

The post drew an nearly instantaneous backlash and prompted O'Neill's campaign manager to resign.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, a democrat who is also running against O'Neill for OH governor, tweeted that O'Neill should resign.

In it, he wrote that he has been "sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females". He described them as "approximately 50 very attractive females". Obama carried the state 51/48 and O'Neill likely benefited, winning his race for a supreme court seat 52/48.


Republican Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, also a candidate for governor, says his "crass post is ill-timed and dismissive at best".

O'Neill says the post grew out of frustration over Democrats' calls to remove Al Franken from the U.S. Senate over sexual misconduct allegations.

O'Connor said in a statement in October that the court has no mechanism to force O'Neill to recuse himself from hearing cases while he runs for governor.

"I am sooooo disappointed by this national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago", the justice wrote in his post.

Justice Bill O'Neill wrote the post Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Dayton Daily News report. He goes on to refer to a "gorgeous blonde" who was his true love, as well as a "drop dead gorgeous redhead from Cleveland".

After all we've been through this week, how does the weirdest story about a politician and sex not involve Al Franken or Roy Moore?

After posting the message Friday, he edited it to remove some identifying information about the women.

Geyh said he was "a bit on the fence" on how to react to O'Neill's post from a potential misconduct angle.
