Ohio Supreme Court Judge Defends Al Franken By Boasting Of His Own Sexual Exploits
In an attempt to defend Senator Al Franken, Ohio Supreme Court Judge Bill O'Neill has come under fire after bragging of his own sexual exploits in a Facebook post. Fellow Ohio Democrats condemned the Judge's comments which began with, "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 controversial post, the 70-year-old O'Neill claims to have slept with over 50 "very attractive females" including a secretary, "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 parent's barn."
O'Neill is nearing the end of his career as a judge and perhaps this is what led to his oversharing since age restrictions will force him to retire from the bench in 2019. A second Facebook post tried to divert attention to his campaign for governor which launched in late October.

The posts were met with all kinds of reactions from social media users, one woman even exclaimed, "YOU ARE TRASH." Another man commented, "You earned my vote." When it comes to his peers, they were not so forgiving.
Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor condemned O'Neill's statement saying, "No words can convey my shock. This gross disrespect for women shakes the public's confidence in the integrity of the judiciary."
Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach also responded to O'Neill's crass statement tweeting to the judge, "Not only have you lost any glimpse of support from me, (you've) also lost my respect."
Mary Taylor, Republican lieutenant governor of Ohio, also tweeted at O'Neill saying, "There's a very serious conversation going on right now in this country about sexual harassment and @BillForOhio's crass post is ill-timed and dismissive at best. We have to be better than this."
O'Neill continued to defend his posts even after the backlash saying, "Lighten up folks. This is how Democrats remain in the minority."
