Governor John Kasich names Ohio Supreme Court replacement for Democratic Justice Bill O'Neil, a gubernatorial candidate, making the all White court majority female and all Republican....Blacks have never been elected to the Ohio Supreme Court, though a few tried the endeavor, including former congresswoman the late Stephanie Tubbs Jones, former Cleveland judge C. Ellen Conally, also a former Cuyahoga County Council president, and former state appellate judges Sara Harper and Yvette McGee Brown, who was appointed to the state's high court in 2011 but lost election for the seat in 2012.....O'Neil bragged on Facebook of allegedly sleeping with 50 'very attractive' women and said that the MeToo movement is a feeding frenzy that disappoints him.... O'Neil quits only four years into his six-year term, an exit that opened the door for Kasich to replace him with a Republican to make the state's high court all Republican.....O'Neil has chosen Chantelle Lewis, who is Black and a former East Cleveland City Council member, as his lieutenant governor running mate....
