Biden Transgender DOE Official Charged With Felony for Allegedly Stealing Luggage

Biden Transgender DOE Official Charged With Felony for Allegedly Stealing Luggage

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.

Two hours later (emphasis mine):

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.

The great Fruit Bag Caper of 2022?

    fruitbaggate

    Wouldn’t he have had to pass a background check and get security clearance for his job? However did that happen?!!!

      Milhouse in reply to lc. | November 29, 2022 at 10:02 am

      Why would it not? What in his background do you think should have made him fail the check?

        Concise in reply to Milhouse. | November 29, 2022 at 11:46 am

        Look at his picture.

          Milhouse in reply to Concise. | November 29, 2022 at 5:16 pm

          Yes? What about his picture should make him fail a background check? Are you suggesting that we should go back to the 1950s, when alternative lifestyles were enough to destroy someone’s career?!

          Concise in reply to Concise. | November 30, 2022 at 11:40 am

          Uh, I’m suggesting that we apply some reasonable standards that take into account the reality that this guy’s deviancy has compromised him and makes him a potential security risk.

          Milhouse in reply to Concise. | November 30, 2022 at 4:27 pm

          the reality that this guy’s deviancy has compromised him and makes him a potential security risk.

          That is not a reality. It never was. His sexual nonconformity has not compromised him at all. His politics are the most deviant thing about him. What has compromised him is his theft, and that had nothing to do with anything else.

          Concise in reply to Concise. | November 30, 2022 at 6:03 pm

          What’s publicly known about “they” more than adequately demonstrates a mentally unbalanced individual. What such an individual might do privately I can’t even imagine but it should prompt a serious review for anyone seeking a security clearance. All I can say is, I’m grateful you’re not in charge of such security reviews.

        caseoftheblues in reply to Milhouse. | November 29, 2022 at 8:52 pm

        The what and how he did it in addition to his response when busted would strongly indicate this is not his first felony.

It’s like Lex Luthor in drag.

Crazy people do crazy things. I wonder if this is the first time he has had the possibility of facing consequences in his life.

We know this administration is full of criminals and thieves (and perverts)- starting right at the very top.

So does Sam Brinton really count towards diversity if he’s just like everyone else in the administration?

I was expecting an important story on LI and I see this BS. What’s going on here?

    Colonel Travis in reply to r2468. | November 28, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    1.) This goofball had a significant role in getting rid of nuclear waste.
    2.) This goofball is an example of what this administration thinks is high quality.

    The country is governed by idiots. That’s important to know.

    CommoChief in reply to r2468. | November 28, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    This dude was trotted out by the WH as a representative of the diverse talent the admin had gathered to showcase how inclusive and virtuous they are. Now dude is facing a felony rap. Seems like a newsworthy event in that light.

      gonzotx in reply to CommoChief. | November 28, 2022 at 7:57 pm

      He’ll get off and be in the WH just a quick as he can put in that Ruby red lipstick

      No one is asking at the WH briefings

      No one

      MattMusson in reply to CommoChief. | November 28, 2022 at 8:05 pm

      They celebrated his perversity and told us to be open minded about a gender fluid satanist who has sex with puppies.

      Why are we not surprised he stole someone’s clothes.

        henrybowman in reply to MattMusson. | November 28, 2022 at 10:41 pm

        I wouldn’t be surprised to find out he peed on them.

        Ah, if Brandon had had a son… oh, wait, he does, and he always gets to skate, too.

        Milhouse in reply to MattMusson. | November 29, 2022 at 10:11 am

        a gender fluid satanist who has sex with puppies.

        A what who has what?! Where are you getting this ridiculous garbage from? He stole a bag. That’s all.

          theyeti in reply to Milhouse. | November 29, 2022 at 6:41 pm

          My guess is he got it straight from the article, although a quick search suggests his interpretation of “pup play” might be wrong and it is possible to be anti-Catholic without being a satanist.

          “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.”

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | November 29, 2022 at 7:14 pm

          No, it is not possible that he honestly and in good faith understood “pup play” that way. Nor is it possible, even if one accepts the article’s characterization of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as “anti-Catholic”, to honestly and in good faith leap from there to “Satanist”. No, MattMusson is simply a bigot. No excuses.

          (And no, while it’s obvious why Catholics find the Sisters offensive, that does not make them anti-Catholic. They use Catholic imagery for their humor, but they do not attack Catholics. There’s a difference between being the material for a joke and being the butt of it, even if from the material’s point of view the distinction seems irrelevant. In the same way, telling Jewish jokes doesn’t make one an antisemite, even if one isn’t oneself Jewish.)

          henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | November 30, 2022 at 1:05 am

          Sounds like someone needs a lesson in the ethics of “pup play.”

          The new Deputy Assistant Secretary explains some of the hazards of “puppy play”: “I actually have trouble when we transition from pup play to having sex. Like, ‘No, I can’t have you whimper like that when we’re having sex,’ because I don’t want to mix that world. It’s interesting, because he doesn’t have to come out of pup mode to have me f**k him. I personally have to bring him out of pup perception for me. But then I’m still treating him as a submissive to me.”

          So you see, Sam Brinton has firm boundaries.
          With animals. Just not with your luggage.

    caseoftheblues in reply to r2468. | November 29, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Well it’s a legal blog… there appears to be a definite developing in our country of a two tier legal system. This story as it plays out will likely be another log on that fire. Not recognizing that and it’s importance…well that’s the only BS I see.

This is our Government

Dear God… Dear God…

So Brinton has a less obvious additional mental illness of kleptomania.

Bless your hearts. It’s click bait.

Stealing luggage? No doubt looking for a wig and lip stick blotters.

A common thief is in charge of America’s nuclear waste.

In a sane world, this pathetic being would long ago been incarcerated in a mental hospital, but in clown world – government middle management!

Same guy gives bondage and BDSM lessons on YouTube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZF3fQ7QCVU

Except how does Brinton escape this? Records show he did not check in a bad for his flight.

Ha, Freudian slip?

Biden doesn’t pay him enough to buy his own Vera Bradley luggage?

Slap some spots on that dome and it belongs in that 90s sci fi movie Alien Nation.

It’s very troubling how people with known mental issues, gender disphoria, being only one, are installed in high level administrator positions, in and out of government.

    txvet2 in reply to Romey. | November 29, 2022 at 1:08 am

    Once upon a time, they use to take things like this into account when they were considering people for security clearances. Not any more, apparently.

      There was a time when homosexuality would mark you for rejection of a security clearance. It was only partly because it was blackmail material (which is why it no longer is a block – homosexuality is ok now, so they can’t blackmail you, is the reasoning). But there was also an element of “If they’re doing this, then there is the likelihood they’re doing other bad things on the sly. They can’t be trusted.”

        Milhouse in reply to GWB. | November 29, 2022 at 10:07 am

        And that was a bad thing. It’s a good thing that that’s no longer a criterion. The problem is that we’ve moved way beyond correcting the previous error, and all the way into the equal but opposite error.

There’s a place for him on the Olympia School District Board.

Black- check.
LGBTQ+ -check
Criminal -check

    Milhouse in reply to Andy. | November 29, 2022 at 10:08 am

    Black?! Are you sure? He doesn’t look black to me.

      If he can identify as a woman, surely he can identify as a black?!?

        Milhouse in reply to MrE. | November 29, 2022 at 5:19 pm

        He doesn’t identify as a woman. He identifies as “gender-fluid”, i.e. he refuses to be pinned down to a single gender, even with 57 to choose from. (As for other senses of “pinned down”, not going there.)

          caseoftheblues in reply to Milhouse. | December 1, 2022 at 7:42 am

          I will look at the evidence not what he claims…… and from every photo I have seen of him, most them he decided to post… he is not gender fluid but a guy who engages in dressing in insulting caricature of actual women. He is classic #womanface and needs to be called out by decent human beings… but here we are Milhouse as always white knighting for evil and despicable

      Different pictures show him with different complexions. In other pics he looks lilly white- others a darker mulato.

      For OSD – he’d probably still make the cut if his boyfriend were black.

      A mixed marriage OSD board member waives that flag around while calling parents racist

He’s ready for a seat in Congress.

He belongs in a mental institution, along with the entire LGBTQ community.

I appreciate the LEO’s efforts: “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.”

Seriously. How hard was that? LOL!

If I were the victim, “a known adult female” (can we even say that anymore?), I would burn every piece of clothing in the bag and have the bag professionally steam cleaned. Twice.

The Samsonite sodomite.

“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…”
“…Kathryn Huff, assistant secretary for nuclear energy.”
Plus the accused…one sees that heterosexual Caucasian males have nothing to offer this Federal agency.

It’s the hormones, stupid.

I love the initial excuse:

“I may have accidently taken someone else’s luggage, but I assure you only my cloths were in it.”

This is why he called back later after realizing how stupid his story was.

“Ok, ok, it WAS someone else’s clothes, but I assure you I only had the best intentions in mind!”

Are we making nuclear waste handling decisions based on their subjective weirdness now — if it’s too weird we just leave it?

Asking for 8 billion radiologically vulnerable co-residents.

    “If I picked up someone else’s bag I’ll gladly return it”

    No matter which bag he picked up, it woud belong to someone else because he didn’t check a bag.

The man stole a bag and we’re over 80 comments. I’m assigning mandatory diversity trying to everyone besides myself and Milhouse. The rest of you are having too much fun and must be punished – like a dog.

    txvet2 in reply to r2468. | November 29, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    “”The man stole a bag””

    That’s what the debate is about. “It” claims to not be a “man”, per se.

    henrybowman in reply to r2468. | November 29, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    “Biden Undersecretary of Nuclear Waste Steals Luggage at Airport” has actual morals implications that “Senator Taps Foot in Men’s Room” entirely lacks (regardless of party).
    He stole the bag, he didn’t screw it. Where are the diversity implications in that?

      The guys a freak and everyone is teeing off on him because of it. I expect there are bigger crimes going on in DC than lifting ladies luggage. It must be because the target is so visible. My initial comment about looking for more important stories, I was hoping A for something about lawsuits and elections in AZ. I thought that might be news but let’s get to 100 comments on dog boy wearing women’s clothes.

        BierceAmbrose in reply to r2468. | December 1, 2022 at 2:49 pm

        What’s all this now about competence and relevant qualifications?

        For this administration, it’s party, the cabal that runs both, and the coalition they’re all embedded in, “I’m a symbolism.” is the mission. I’m unclear if getting publicly nicked for minor crimes counts as for or against.

Brinton did not check any luggage. Why was he near the luggage carousel? When I have not checked luggage, I am out the door and to transportation as quickly as I can.
Side note. MSP must be very efficient in getting luggage off the plane. Although I usually go to the bathroom on the way to the luggage carousel, I usually find myself standing near the carousel waiting for the luggage to start coming down the chute.
