Sam Brinton, the gender-fluid deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the U.S. Department of Energy, has been put on leave after being charged with stealing a woman’s luggage from Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) International Airport.
Brinton allegedly removed a luggage tag from a navy blue Vera Bradley suitcase bag, dropped it into his handbag, and “then left the area at a quick pace” on September 16, 2022, according to a criminal complaint reported by Alpha News.
The suitcase and the contents inside were valued at an estimated $2,325. Brinton was charged with a felony and has now been put on leave, according to the Biden Administration.
“Sam Brinton is on leave from DOE, and Dr. Kim Petry is performing the duties of Deputy Assistant Secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition,” an Energy Department spokesperson told The Hill.
From The Daily Wire:
Brinton, who has caused a stir among Americans for his role in the federal government for dressing in drag and boasting online about his puppy role-play fetish, reportedly flew into MSP with American Airlines just before 4:30 p.m. from Washington, D.C., According to the complaint, Brinton traveled without a checked bag, indicating he had no purpose to claim a bag after landing.
The complaint alleges Brinton left the airport in an Uber and checked into the InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront hotel with the blue bag.
Briton returned to MSP two days later, on September 18, and flew back to Washington, D.C., with the same bag.
Records and video surveillance showed the suitcase belonged to a female passenger who flew into the MSP on a Delta flight from New Orleans. According to a report, she notified law enforcement that her bag and the contents inside — valued at around $2,325 — had gone missing in the baggage claim area on the same day Brinton allegedly took the luggage.
