Here's Ohio Democratic Party chairman David Pepper correctly calling out O'Neill for boneheadedly conflating credible sexual assault allegations with "being a horny guy".

An Ohio Supreme Court justice and Ohio gubernatorial candidate has received backlash after he made a controversial Facebook post responding to the recent rash of allegations of sexual misconduct against public figures. As a candidate for Governor let me save my opponents some research time.

According to a version of the post Cleveland.com screen captured, O'Neill went into more detail about the two sexual relationships he mentioned.

"In the last fifty years I was sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females", he wrote.

In the post, O'Neill said he believed it was time to "speak up on behalf of all the heterosexual males". I am sooooo disappointed by this national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago. O'Neill says his point was to get the past out of the way. In it, he describes his sexual forays in detail.

"It's a matter of parody suggesting that, as a governor candidate, I assume I am the next target of the media frenzy", he said. But O'Neill says it wasn't inappropriate. "Absolutely not. We don't have robots on the bench", O'Neill said. "It's obviously an appropriate post because we're talking about real issues for real people".

O'Neill, who has expressed interest in running for OH governor, posted on Facebook Friday afternoon stating: "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". He's a registered nurse, a former Army officer and father of four.

Sutton said on Twitter she was "horrified" and "outraged he would equate sexual assault with indiscretion".

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, a Democrat who is also running for governor, called for O'Neill to resign from the court.

O'Neill's own campaign manager Chris Clevenger, who identified himself to be a victim of sexual assault, announced he would not remain a part of the campaign.

Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor, the first woman to hold that position, condemned the post. "And what my post demonstrates is, I'm a real person".
