Women "ordained" by Bishop in "Good Standing"

Interesting tidbit hidden in this story, who is this bishop and how could he not be known? From the Washington Post:

The group she belongs to began in 2002, when a renegade bishop ordained seven women in Germany. The Vatican quickly excommunicated the women. The next year, another bishop in good standing but who was never identified secretly ordained two women as bishops, saying he disagreed with the church teaching on women. More ordinations have taken place since, and the number of women in training for the priesthood has climbed to 120 today, Fresen said.
