An Ohio Supreme Court Justice and candidate for governor landed in hot water on Friday for "joking and trivializing sexual assault" in a Facebook post.

O'Neill then appeared to list some women with whom he had sexual encounters.

In the post, the OH gubernatorial candidate talks about being sexually intimate with "approximately 50 very attractive females", and said he was "disappointed by this national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago".

"Now can we get back to discussing legalizing marijuana and opening the state hospital network to combat the opiod [sic] crisis", the candidate said.

Judge O'Neill noted that as a candidate for governor, his admission would "save my opponents some research time".

While O'Neill corrected the post to remove the mention of Taft, his original post was preserved for all eternity by a screenshot. Questions about judicial ethics and the ability to remain impartial while campaigning were raised by fellow politicians and editorial boards across the state.

"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.

Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor, the first woman to lead the state's high court, immediately condemned the post.

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper wrote on Twitter: "Just a bad post by Justice O'Neill".

Ohio Democratic Party chairman David Pepper said O'Neill's Facebook post was "terrible", especially given its timing.

Justice Bill O'Neill wrote the post Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Dayton Daily News report.

O'Neill said he was prompted to post the comments in reaction to calls for Sen.

"The comments made today by @BillForOhio were both disturbing and misguided", Clevenger tweeted. And I fully understand the anguish of victims, .

He added, "Moments ago I was able to contact Justice O'Neill to announce my resignation from the campaign".

"Sexual harassment and assault is no laughing matter".

O'Neill's post was immediately met with outrage from both sides of the political spectrum in OH, with most calling for him to withdraw from the governor's race immediately. "I have been out of pocket all day, and had no prior knowledge of his statement".

In contrast, the OH supreme court's chief justice condemned her colleague for expressing "gross disrespect for women", and his opponents have called for his resignation. "The next Governor of OH must take it seriously to receive my vote", Clevenger concluded. No words can convey my shock.This gross disrespect for women shakes the public's confidence in the integrity of the judiciary.
