Did ex-Recorder O’Malley get any breaks?

State Auditor Mary Taylor, a Republican, did that scorching performance audit for the last two years of the office mis-run by now-resigned, now-convicted and now-imprisoned Cuyahoga County Recorder Patrick O’Malley, a Democrat.

But for all O’Malley’s years in office and the state’sfiscal fact-checking now done, was O’Malley ever held accountable by former State Auditors Betty Montgomery and Jim Petro, both Republicans? If not, why might it have taken so long?

And fast-forwarding to now and economic times, how many more staffers might lose their jobs under new Recorder Lillian Greene, a Democrat?
