In anticipation for this month's arrival of ex-Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona, the federal Bureau of Prisons has issued a new identity for the convicted felon who abused his office by, among other things, attempting to sabotage a federal grand jury investigating OC law enforcement corruption: 


Inmate 45335-112

No, no. I know what you're thinking. As far as we know, The Little Sheriff, Carona's nickname for his penis when trying to pick up women, will remain The Little Ex-Sheriff.

Carona, once OC's most popular politician--especially among Christian Conservatives, won a 66-month prison term following a trial that ended in January. The trial exposed the three-term Republican sheriff as a morally twisted liar unfit even for a seat on a local sanitation district board.

He's due to begin serving his punishment on July 24.
