Candidate for Ohio governor reveals sexual past on Facebook

Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor lambasted the Facebook post in a statement later Friday, saying that "I condemn in no uncertain terms Justice O'Neill's Facebook post".

In it, he wrote that he has been "sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females". One woman was "a gorgeous blonde" with whom he made love in the hayloft of her parents' barn, and another was a "drop dead gorgeous red head", he said. "And what my post demonstrates is, I'm a real person".

Another candidate for OH governor is calling on state Supreme Court Justice and gubernatorial contender William O'Neill to resign over a Facebook post in which he volunteered candid details of his sexual past.

"Just a bad post by Justice O'Neill". "This gross disrespect for women shakes the public's confidence in the integrity of the judiciary". She said she's "outraged he would equate sexual assault with indiscretion". Joe Schiavoni - called for O'Neill to resign, saying he was trivializing the issue.

A state supreme court justice thinks it "violates due process" to accuse someone of something outside of court? Franken's (D., Minn.) sexual misconduct scandal.

"There is this extent to which he seems to be nearly pandering to a certain demographic who will be impressed by his sexual conquests, which strikes me as tacky, maybe, but doesn't address the issue of his impartiality", Geyh said.

Only a day earlier, Sutton unveiled a plan to combat sexual harassment and sexual assault in state government, where two state lawmakers have resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations in about a month's time.

Ohio Democratic Party chair David Pepper called O'Neill's post "terrible" in a Tweet.

O'Neill's own campaign manager Chris Clevenger, who identified himself to be a victim of sexual assault, announced he would not remain a part of the campaign.

O'Neill, who announced that he is running for governor in 2018, has already stirred up controversy by holding his seat on the state supreme court until he submits his petitions for candidacy.

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

But many were particularly offended that O'Neill purported to be "speaking for all heterosexual males".

The politician also added that he's "sooooo disappointed in the national feeding frenzy" and pushed to return to matters of politics.

O'Neill's spokesperson has reportedly stepped down.

As a judge, O'Neill is barred by the Ohio Code of Judicial Conduct from running from political office.
