O'MALLEY SHIPPED TO CINCY — FOR HIS PROTECTION OR OURS?

Patrick J. O'Malley's life as a federal convict is almost over, and the shamed politico took one step closer to freedom this week.

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
