On Friday, a sitting member of the OH state Supreme Court published a weird Facebook post detailing his sexual relationships and defending a pair of scandal-rocked politicians.
Connie Pillich, who is also running for governor, agreed the justice should resign, tweeting, "there's nothing amusing about sexual assault".
Justice William O'Neill took to Facebook on Friday to make a pithy statement about what he describe as the "national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions", and in doing so, disclosed details about his own sexual history. "In the last fifty years I was sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females".
"Just a awful post by Justice O'Neill".
Only a few hours after the post, O'Neill's campaign spokesman said he had resigned over his boss's comments.
Ohio Democratic Party spokeswoman Kirstin Alvanitakis said O'Neill missed the point about the national dialogue happening over sexual assault.
O'Neill's wildly inappropriate post came a day after another in which he sounded off on the Roy Moore controversy on Facebook.Читайте также: Arsenal aim to end six-game winless Premier League run vs
"Roy Moore apparently seems to be a challenged individual when it comes to morality", O'Neill told the OH news site.
In his original announcement, the Supreme Court justice almost identified the very women he was referring to, and one wrong word suggested that he had actually slept with a USA senator!
Local politicians also pushed back against the post.
In his post, O'Neill, a candidate for governor, said he wanted to save opponents time researching him. 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.
According to a version of the post Cleveland.com screen captured, O'Neill went into more detail about the two sexual relationships he mentioned. That includes Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate accused of pursuing teens when he was an adult, who O'Neill did not defend.
O'Neill told The Associated Press that the post grew out of frustration over Democrats' calls to remove Al Franken from the U.S. Senate over sexual misconduct allegations. He writes that he is "sooooo disappointed" by the current watershed moment in public discourse about sexual violence, that he calls a "feeding frenzy".
O'Neill insisted that the sexual assault issue is far less important than issues of governance.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
