MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL- Back in February, Law Enforcement Today reported about a controversial pick made by the Biden administration for a key post in the Department of Energy.
That pick, a so-called “non-binary” individual named Sam Brinton was called “groundbreaking” at the time, with Brinton being the “first non-binary” person to be appointed to a key position in a presidential administration.
Because as we are all well aware, checking off boxes on the woke checklist is the most important qualification to be appointed in the Biden administration. Just look at the White House press secretary or the head of the Department of Transportation for any questions.
Now, Brinton finds himself put on leave after he was charged with a felony after he was snagged stealing a woman’s suitcase from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Brinton, who serves as deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy (that’s a mouthful), is set to appear on Dec. 19 for a hearing in Hennepin County District Court on a charge of felony theft.
According to the Department of Energy, a spokesperson announced last week that Brinton has been put on leave (unknown if paid or unpaid) as the case progresses.
The complaint says that on Sept. 16 of this year, airport police at the Minneapolis airport received a report of a missing suitcase from the baggage claim area. The complainant told officers she and her son arrived in Minneapolis, having flown in from New Orleans on Delta Airlines late in the afternoon.
Police say Brinton arrived in the Twin Cities, having flown in from Washington, D.C. on an American Airlines flight at roughly the same time as the victim, and had not checked a bag onto his flight.
Airport records showed the navy blue Vera Bradley roller bag arrived at 4:40 p.m., but was missing from the carousel.
Upon reviewing surveillance video, police observed Brinton (who clearly is not easy to miss) removing the luggage from the baggage carousel, put the bag’s identification tag in his handbag and then leaving the area “at a quick pace,” the complaint continued.
The complainant reviewed an image of the suitcase Brinton took from the carousel and positively identified it as hers. She told officers the contents of the suitcase and “the total estimated value of the contents and the bag came to $2,325,” the police report continued.
When he checked into a hotel in downtown St. Paul later that afternoon, Brinton had the woman’s luggage in his possession. On Sept. 18, he checked the stolen luggage on a flight back to Washington, D.C.
On Oct. 9, 2022, Brinton again used the luggage for a return trip from Europe, as confirmed on video surveillance at the Washington-Dulles Airport located outside of Washington, D.C.
An officer from the MSP police spoke to Brinton on the day of his flight from Europe and asked him about the theft. He initially denied any knowledge about it, then acknowledged he had taken the suitcase, however denied that there were any clothes for another person inside.
“If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it,” the complaint quoted Brinton as saying,” but I don’t have any clothes for another individual. That was my clothes when I opened the bag.”
This despite the fact that Brinton had not checked a bag on his initial flight from Washington, D.C. to Minneapolis-St. Paul. He was clearly lying.
Shortly afterward, Brinton returned a call to the officer and apologized for not being honest and used the excuse of being tired and thinking the luggage was his. He claimed that when he opened the suitcase at the hotel in St. Paul, he became nervous of being thought of as a thief (which he is). The clothes were left in the hotel dresser, Brinton claimed.
Upon checking with the hotel in St. Paul, however, they confirmed that no clothes were recovered from the hotel room Brinton stayed in.
The Tennessee Star said that Brinton was instructed by police to return the bag to Delta Airlines, however as of Oct 27 the victim still had not gotten her Vera Bradley bag back.
Brinton is the poster child for the unhinged radicals hired in key positions in the Biden administration. According to the Tennessee Star and our prior reporting, Brinton previously had worked as an “anti-conversion therapy activist” who taught a workshop called “Kink 101” on college campuses throughout the country, The National Pulse had reported.
Brinton also engages in a twisted fetish called “pup play” and discussed that in a 2016 Metro weekly article, as reported in The National Pulse.
“One of the hardest thing about being a handler is that I’ve honestly had people ask, ‘Wait, you have sex with animals?’” Brinton said at the time. “they believe it’s abusive, that it’s taking advantage of someone who may not be acting up to a level of human responsibility…The other misperception is that I have some really messed up background, like, did I have some horrible childhood trauma that made me like to have sex with animals?”
Reminder…he’s a high-ranking official tasked with disposal of nuclear waste.
He also is a member of a sacrilegious drag queen group called “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” which serves to mock Catholic nuns with names such as “Sister Porn Again,” “Sister Chastity Boner,” and “Sister Roz Erection,” American Greatness reported.

But hey…what about those mean tweets?
