Brinton faces five years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both. He has been on leave for over a month.
Alpha News reported that Sam Brinton, the deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition at the Department of Energy, faces felony charges after allegedly stealing a woman’s luggage.
The MIT graduate has made news for displaying his “genderfluid” style but also, in the past, made it no secret he has a “pup play” fetish. He even gave “Kink 101” workshops on college campuses. There’s also the anti-Catholic drag queen society he belongs to that mocks nuns.
The MSM gobbled up all those facts about Brinton, showing him off to prop up Biden’s “inclusive” administration.
And yet I do not see this all over the MSM.
Brinton is charged with Theft/Take/Use/Transfer Movable Prop-No Consent. It is a federal offense.
Brinton faces 5 years in prison, a $10,000 fine, or both.
Charge description: “That on or about 9/16/2022, in Hennepin County, Minnesota, Samuel Otis Brinton intentionally and without claim of right, took, used, transferred, concealed or retained possession of movable property belonging to Victim without consent and with the intent to deprive the owner/entity permanently of possession of the property, and the property.”
It all starts at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) on September 16. A woman said her bag, with items worth around $2,325, was missing from a baggage carousel after her Delta flight (emphasis mine):
On September 16, 2022, law enforcement at the Minneapolis St. Paul (MSP) Airport, which is located in Hennepin County, Minnesota, were alerted to a missing suitcase in the baggage claim area. The victim, a known adult female, stated she and her son flew into MSP on a Delta flight from New Orleans. Victim proceeded to baggage Carousel 7 to claim her checked bag, which is a navy blue hard-sided Vera Bradley 26-inch roller bag. The bag was scanned as arriving at 16:40 hours at the MSP Airport but was missing from the carousel.
Law enforcement obtained the video surveillance for Carousel 7. At 16:45 hours, officers observe the suspect, who was later identified as SAMUEL OTIS BRINTON, DEFENDANT herein, remove a navy blue hard-sided roller bag from the rear of Carousel 7. DEFENDANT removed the blue bag’s tag and put the bag tag in the handbag they were carrying. DEFENDANT then left the area at a quick pace. Police took a digital photo of the bag removed by DEFENDANT and showed it to Victim who confirmed it was her bag.
Law enforcement confirmed DEFENDANT arrived at MSP Airport on an American Airlines flight at 16:27 hours from Washington D.C. They were able to track DEFENDANT’S movements throughout the airport. After DEFENDANT took the blue bag from Carousel 7, DEFENDANT is observed leaving the airport in a Rideshare vehicle with the blue bag. Records from American-Airlines confirmed that DEFENDANT did not check a bag when DEFENDANT departed Washington D.C. to MSP Airport.
Law enforcement learned DEFENDANT stayed at the InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront hotel. Video surveillance from the hotel showed DEFENDANT checking in with the blue bag.
DEFENDANT returned to the MSP Airport on September 18. Video surveillance shows DEFENDANT checking the blue bag for a departing flight back to Washington D.C.
Victim subsequently provided an itemized list for the contents of the bag and their value. The total estimated value of the contents and the bag came to $2325.00.
The complaint states that Brinton took the bag to the InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront Hotel. He then returned to MSP with the same bag on September 18.
Dulles International Airport video shows Brinton with the Vera Bradley bag on October 9, returning from Europe.
Police spoke to Brinton on October 9 (emphasis mine):
On October 9, 2022, your Complainant called DEFENDANT to speak about the incident. Your Complainant asked DEFENDANT if they took anything that did not belong to them, and DEFENDANT responded “Not that I know of.” DEFENDANT later admitted to taking the bag but denied that clothes for another individual were inside. DEFENDANT said “If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it, but I don’t have any clothes for another individual. That was my clothes when I opened the bag.” DEFENDANT confirmed still having the blue bag.
Approximately two hours later, DEFENDANT called your Complainant. DEFENDANT apologized for not being “completely honest”. DEFENDANT admitted to taking the blue bag, but stated they were tired and took the suitcase thinking it was theirs. DEFENDANT said when they opened the bag at the hotel, they realized it was not theirs. DEFENDANT got nervous people would think they stole the bag and did not know what to do. DEFENDANT stated they left the clothes from the bag inside the drawers in the hotel room. DEFENDANT admitted to taking the blue bag back to the airport on September 18 and checking the bag that did not belong to DEFENDANT. Your Complainant further questioned DEFENDANT on why check the bag on September 18, and DEFENDANT responded they did not want to leave the bag in the hotel room, reasoning it was “weirder” to leave a bag than the clothes.
Except how does Brinton escape this? Records show he did not check in a bag for his flight.
The woman has not received her bag as of October 27. The police gave Brinton instructions on how to return the bag to Delta.
Brinton has been on leave “for at least a month“:
Brinton has been on leave from DOE for at least a month, the agency has acknowledged. On Nov. 18, Kim Petry, the acting deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel who has stood in for Brinton, wrote in an email to DOE colleagues that she had been asked to stay on as head of the spent fuel office “for the foreseeable future” by Kathryn Huff, assistant secretary for nuclear energy.
“I should have another update for all of you in a month or so,” Petry wrote in the email. That timetable corresponds roughly with Brinton’s scheduled hearing in the Hennepin County District Court in Minneapolis.
