2nd OH governor rival asks O'Neill to resign

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. Al Franken he felt the need to talk about his own exploits, supposedly to get it out of the way to better focus on real issues. O'Neill wrote in the post that his intent is to draw attention to the feeding frenzy surrounding the indiscretions of some political leaders, and he writes that he's saving his opponents some research time. In the last fifty years I was sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females. It ranged from a gorgeous blonde who was my first true love and we made passionate love in the hayloft of her parents barn and ended with a drop dead gorgeous red head from Cleveland.

"I am sooooo disappointed by this national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago", the justice wrote in his post. Responses include, "Bravo you've boasted about being depraved hedonistic and misogynistic", and the simple, "Seriously?"

"Unfortunately, Justice O'Neill's Facebook comments that dehumanize women add nothing to this important conversation, which is actually about harassment and abuse, not encounters between consenting adults", she said. No words can convey my shock.

Former U.S. Rep. Betty Sutton, a leading Democrat in the governor's race, called for Supreme Court Justice William O'Neill to resign immediately, saying he was trivializing sexual harassment and assault. O'Neill also said he would not hear new cases but will decide on the ones presented before he announced his candidacy.

A Facebook post from the only Democratic justice on the Ohio Supreme Court is raising eyebrows today. Questions about judicial ethics and the ability to remain impartial while campaigning were raised by fellow politicians and editorial boards across the state.
