Judge Bill O’Neill Running For Ohio Governor Boasts He’s Had Sex With 50 Women

An Ohio Supreme Court justice wanting to become the next Ohio Governor took to Facebook on Friday, revealing he has been “sexually intimate” with 50 “very attractive females.”

It was a pretty stupid campaign strategy as the number of sexual misconduct accusations across the nation and one that triggered tremendous controversy in Ohio. Democrat Bill O’Neill’s campaign spokesman quit within hours of the post. O’Neill wrote on Facebook, vowing to save his critics “some research time” :

“Now that the dogs of war are calling for the head of Senator Al Franken I believe it is time to speak up on behalf of all heterosexual males. In the last fifty years I was sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females,” O’Neill wrote. “It ranged from a gorgeous personal secretary to Senator Bob Taft (Senior) 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 … in Cleveland.” 

O’Neill said he revealed his sexual past to protest what he sees as a new standard. He told the local Fox News station:

“It’s driven by the media, that if you’re not absolutely pure you’re not eligible to run for office in America. That’s wrong.”

The candidate was slammed by both Democrats and Republicans who criticized him for appearing to make light of sexual harassment and assault with his boasts.The Republican candidate for governor, Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, criticized the “crass post” that’s “dismissive at best.”

O’Neill also defended Franken (D-Minn.), who has apologized for forcibly kissing and groping broadcaster Leeann Tweeden in 2006, and Roy Moore, the Alabama Republican nominee for Senate who has been accused of sexual misconduct with teenagers when he was in his 30s.

O’Neill told Cleveland.com he hasn’t yet been convicted of a crime, rather, “He’s been convicted of nothing and he’s never had the opportunity to defend himself and that violates due process in America.”

O’Neill is ignoring calls to quit the race and the bench ― deleted the 50-lovers post but added a clarification Friday on Facebook concerning Franken, calling it “morally wrong” to demand Franken’s resignation after the senator apologized for a “non criminal act of indiscretion.” O’Neill concluded:

“Lighten up folks. This is how Democrats remain in the minority.”

Many responded on Facebook saying they could no longer support him.

O’Neill’s own campaign spokesman Chris Clevenger announced he was resigning after the whole ordeal, calling the comments “disturbing and misguided” in a tweet.
