George Santos Loses Appeal,  Backers Will Be Revealed Thursday

The Honorable Judge Joanna Seybert

The identities of the people who guaranteed Rep. George Santos’ $500,000 bond in his criminal fraud case will be revealed Thursday at noon ET,  Federal  Judge Joanna Seybert ordered (Clinton) Tuesday.

Other sealed documents in the case, including Seybert’s full written order, are also scheduled to be unsealed Thursday, according to a docket entry in Santos’ case.

Multiple news outlets asked the court to release those names, arguing that the public had a right to know their identities. The New York Times contended the substantial bail figure “presents an obvious opportunity for political influence,” especially because the charges against Santos “involve abusing the political process for personal gain.”
