The Ohio Democratic Party and other Democrats have condemned Ohio Supreme Court Justice Bill O'Neill (D.) after he shared his sexual history on social media in the wake of Sen.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the Supreme Court justice confirmed he wrote the post and said, "I'm a candidate for governor and I assume I'm the next target".
O'Neill then appeared to list some women with whom he had sexual encounters.
The post initially gave identifying details about women O'Neill had slept with, one of whom "he made passionate love [with] in the hayloft of her parent's barn".

Later, he confirmed that he chose to leave Sherin home alone after she refused to drink milk while he grew impatient. The couple's other child is being placed with family in Houston, Texas, in the wake of her parents' arrests.
Ohio Democratic Chairman David Pepper also commented on the quickly escalating controversy, calling it "just a bad post" that dehumanized women and trivialized an important national conversation about rape culture and sexual assault.
O'Neill closed his message by saying, "Now can we get back to discussing legalizing marijuana and opening the state hospital network to combat the opioid crisis".
"As a 15 year jurist, I like to think I speak with clarity". He's been convicted of nothing and he's never had the opportunity to defend himself and that violates due process in America. Questions about judicial ethics and the ability to remain impartial while campaigning were raised by fellow politicians and editorial boards across the state. "We're having a serious national conversation about rape culture and sexual harassment, and it's crucial for men to take time to listen to women and consider their experiences and insights".
Candidate Connie Pillich tweeted that while O'Neill has been a friend and donated to her campaign, he "should resign" and she will be "donating his contributions to orgs helping women". "As a victim of sexual assault, I can not in good faith remain a part of #TeamONeill".

"The next Governor of OH must take it seriously to receive my vote", Clevenger concluded. "I have been out of pocket all day, and had no prior knowledge of his statement".
"No words can convey my shock", O'Connor wrote. O'Neill also said he would not hear new cases but will decide on the ones presented before he announced his candidacy.
