The former Cuyahoga County recorder went to prison in October after he pleaded guilty to a rare federal obscenity charge. The feds discovered a catalog of illegal porn on two of O'Malley's personal computers, which they'd seized in an unrelated investigation.
O'Malley — a brash, brawling Democrat and close chum of Prosecutor Bill Mason — was transferred earlier this week from a low-security prison in Elkton to a Cincinnati halfway house, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. O'Malley is expected to be free of federal custody on Nov. 3 — just in time to share his experiences with any local Dems who might be wondering what prison showers are really like. — Damian Guevara
