After Russo, watch Federal Judge O'Malley even more?

Resigned Cuyahoga County Auditor Frank Russo, who pleaded guilty to charges of corruption, to maybe be sentenced to 22 years in prison by Federal Judge Kathleen (Kate) O’Malley? That’s what they say.

The same O’Malley, a Richmond Heights native who was appointed to her bench by former President Bill Clinton--got nominated earlier this year by President Barack Obama to fill a vacancy on Federal Appellate Court?

Plus, she’s getting a good reception in the U.S. Senate in D.C. where she was introduced in July by U.S. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. So O’Malley might soon be in the news again?

And if she’s appointed, her gets her current federal bench?
