The calls for him to resign from the court, where he has served since 2013, were already loud before Friday's post, as many took issue with O'Neill hearing court cases while also taking the public stances necessary to run for the Democratic nomination for governor.
The campaign spokesman for Ohio State Supreme Court Justice and Democratic gubernatorial candidate William O'Neill has resigned over a Facebook post in which his boss wrote about his sexual past.
"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".
"It's a matter of parody suggesting that, as a governor candidate, I assume I am the next target of the media frenzy", he said.
Hours after OH judge and gubernatorial candidate Bill O'Neill bragged about bedding "approximately 50 very attractive females" in defense of allegations of harassment against Sen. He goes on to refer to a "gorgeous blonde" who was his true love, as well as a "drop dead gorgeous redhead from Cleveland". "I am sooooo disappointed by this national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago", he said on Facebook.
O'Neill has edited his post to remove the specific occupations of the women he said he had sex with. The former being "personal secretary to Senator Bob Taft (Senior)", while the latter he said "was a senior advisor to Peter Lewis at Progressive Insurance in Cleveland".
O'Neill told the Dayton Daily News that he was indeed responsible for the post.
Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore is facing accusations from several women, the youngest of whom was 14 at the time of the alleged assault.. He said that Moore seems to be a morally "challenged individual", but "never had the opportunity" to defend himself and hasn't been convicted of anything.
"The biggest takeaway for me is that there is something very uncomfortable seeming about a judge who is simultaneously sitting as judge and running for elected office", Geyh said. "The media is about to determine the election of a United States Senate campaign".
For what it's worth, fellow Democrats are none too pleased with his post.
Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, a democrat who is also running against O'Neill for OH governor, tweeted that O'Neill should resign.
On Friday, a Democrat candidate in the OH governor's race made a tremendous splash by coming clean about his sexual history on Facebook, making light of the barrage of sexual assault allegations that have dominated American media in the last few weeks.
And though there are calls for him to resign, he says there's no way.
"Sexual harassment, degrading and devaluing women is not a joke", Whaley tweeted.
O'Connor did not say anything about whether O'Neill should resign, and a court spokeswoman did not respond to a follow-up email.
