The Ohio Supreme Court justice and Democrat running for Ohio governor in 2018, who posted a now-deleted Facebook post bragging that he shared physical intimacy with 50 woman, Saturday succumbed to the public backlash.
“If I offended anyone, particularly the wonderful women in my life, I apologize,” said Justice William M. O’Neill in another tortured foray into social media.
Shortly after his initial post sparked controversy, O’Neill tried to calm people down.
O’Neill started it all when he posted this extraordinary statement Friday:
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. As a candidate for Governor let me save my opponents some research time. In the last fifty years I was sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females. 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 parents barn and ended with a drop dead gorgeous red head who was a senior advisor to Peter Lewis at Progressive Insurance in Cleveland.
Now can we get back to discussing legalizing marijuana and opening the state hospital network to combat the opioid crisis. I am sooooodisappointed by this national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago.
The post has been described as a defense of Sen. Alan S. Franken (D.-Minn.), but his groping incident took place in 2006–hardly decades ago.
It could be that O’Neill was somehow defending Roy S. Moore, the Alabama GOP’s nominee in the Dec. 12 special Senate election.
O’Neill has also said that Moore was convicted of nothing, and he’s never had the opportunity to defend himself, and that violates due process in America. The media is about to determine the election of a United States Senate campaign.
Ohio’s Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor issued a statement expressing her disgust with O’Neill’s initial post.
“I condemn in no uncertain terms Justice O’Neill’s Facebook post. No words can convey my shock. This gross disrespect for women shakes the public’s confidence in the integrity of the judiciary,” she said.
Democrat Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach also condemned O’Neill’s initial post.
“Disgusting post from a current Ohio Supreme Court Justice and Democrat running for Ohio Governor,” he Tweeted.

State Rep. Niraj Antani (R.-Ohio) Tweeted his call for O’Neill to be removed from Ohio’s high court.
[email protected] is not a political threat, but he is a threat to the Constitution & a fair and independent judiciary if he is not removed from the Supreme Court: https://t.co/SQ4dEQfS3A @JasonAubryNBC4 @WDTN

Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, also a candidate for governor, Tweeted that O’Neill’s post was ill-timed and dismissive.
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. https://t.co/Ee1p9q9pc0

Ohio Democratic Party spokeswoman Kirstin Alvanitakis said the retired Army lieutenant colonel missed the point.
“Unfortunately, Justice O’Neill’s Facebook comments that dehumanize women add nothing to this important conversation, which is actually about harassment and abuse, not encounters between consenting adults,” she said.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
