Let's get this out of the way: Bill O'Neill has boned a lot of women.

Amid allegations of sexual harassment and assault against powerful men in recent weeks, the Ohio Supreme Court Justice and Democratic candidate for governor thought he'd get the skeletons out of his closet before anyone else could.

The resulting statement, posted on Justice O'Neill's Facebook page, was a bizarre confessional-slash-humblebrag about all the women he's allegedly slept with.

O'Neill confirmed that he wrote the post in an interview with Cleveland.com, saying he was disappointed with the "national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago." He also told the site that actually, he wasn't quite sure if he'd slept with exactly 50 attractive women, because he "doesn't keep count."

And because he was on a roll, he also weighed in on the allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of child molestation. (Moore has vigorously denied the allegations.)

"Roy Moore apparently seems to be a challenged individual when it comes to morality," O'Neill said. "I think that's very, very clear. He's been 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."

Reminder: Powerful men like Moore, Harvey Weinstein and Sen. Al Franken have been accused of sexual assault, not overflowing sexual prowess. (Weinstein has denied all allegations of rape; Franken has apologized for his behavior.) Having sex and sexual assault are two very, very different things.
