O'Neill, who had announced his intentions to run for governor of OH in October, made headlines on Friday when he issued a Facebook post intending to defend Minnesota Senator Al Franken, who apologized on Thursday after being accused of sexual misconduct during a USO tour in 2006.
O'Neill then appeared to list some women with whom he had sexual encounters. Namely, Justice Bill O'Neill defended Al Franken and Roy Moore, all while publicly claiming he'd had sexual relationships throughout his lifetime with "approximately 50 very attractive females".
An Ohio Supreme Court justice with gubernatorial aspirations is raising eyebrows with his response to sexual misconduct allegations against Sen. He said nothing in the post seemed to show O'Neill would exhibit bias in the cases he hears - including those involving criminal charges of sexual misconduct - but that judges have historically steered clear of making the type of statement O'Neill made Friday.
O'Neill said he had no regrets on the posting because one should speak up if one sees something wrong, which he sees in the "frenzy" surrounding Al Franken. 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.
In his post, O'Neill, a candidate for governor, said he wanted to save opponents time researching him. And as a women I'm outraged that he would equate sexual assault with indiscretion.

The three women running as Republicans for OH governor - Former Rep. He's been convicted of nothing and he's never had the opportunity to defend himself and that violates due process in America.
