OHIO SUPREME COURT

Three women who are running for the Democratic nomination for governor --  Congresswoman Betty Sutton, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley and former state Rep. Connie Pillich -- are calling for Ohio Supreme Court justice Bill O’Neill to resign over comments he made on Facebook alluding to his sexual past.

In response to sexual harassment allegations against Senator Al Franken, O’Neill wrote that he has been "sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females."

Former state Rep. Connie Pillich of Montgomery has joined the field of Democratic candidates for Ohio governor. Pillich announced her candidacy today yesterday in a video on her campaign website.

The lawyer and former Air Force captain says Ohio has a lot of problems that need to be addressed and says she's the person to do it.

“One thing that really concerns me is our education being outsourced to corporations, our roads and bridges falling apart. Our young people are leaving the state because they don’t think they have any opportunity in Ohio.”
