Non-Binary Energy Official Sam Brinton Allegedly Stole Luggage From Las Vegas Airport

Non-Binary Energy Official Sam Brinton Allegedly Stole Luggage From Las Vegas Airport

The accusation is similar to the charges Brinton faces in Minnesota for allegedly stealing a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) on September 16.

Sam Brinton, the deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition at the Department of Energy, allegedly stole luggage from the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, NV.

“A felony warrant was issued for Sam Brinton, a deputy assistant secretary, sources said,” according to KLAS in Las Vegas. “The charge is for grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000, records showed.”

The accusation is similar to the charges Brinton faces in Minnesota for allegedly stealing a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) on September 16.

In that case, 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.

Brinton has already 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.

I will update this post once officials release more information regarding the Las Vegas allegations.

Just prosecute him. I suspect the case will not be that difficult to show beyond a reasonable doubt.

    It’s not like he(?) is easily confused with, well, pretty much anybody.

    And next case, your Honor;
    Sammy the Bottom vs. the people of the City of Las Vegas, Nevada.

    The difficulty prosecuting is that for generations Leftist Federal officials have been above the law and immune from prosecution. The last thing the regime wants to do in this case is void that functional precedent.

    Subotai Bahadur

      That’s just not true. Anyone caught like this has always been prosecuted, and there was never any doubt at all that he would be, even before this second incident was revealed. Now there’s even less doubt than none.

For the Pink Floyd fan…Arnold Layne?

A day that will live in infamy. December 7, 1941? No, December 15, 1973 when the American Psychiatric Association declared homosexuality no longer a mental illness. This decision was based on internal politicking, not any new scientific insight. The loonies are now running the asylum.

    That’s happening a lot these days. And to make matters worse, a lot of overeducated idiots just go along with the lie because they can’t, or won’t, admit they have been had. Just look at how everyone just says we’re not in a recession because Joe Biden lied through his teeth and said we’re not in a recession.

    No doubt about it. Homosexuality causes people to steal luggage and commit all manner of heinous crimes.

    The preference itself is not. A life time of dealing with the implications can mess with a psyche. Some worse than others.

    Try being a conservative in a room, town, state full of hate against you and see how your psyche holds up. A person’s well being will have a reaction to action.

    One of the beloved commenters on here is openly gay.

    CommoChief in reply to E Howard Hunt. | December 9, 2022 at 12:06 pm

    This dude ain’t ‘gay’. He is a self proclaimed non binary fetish freak into all sorts of kink that goes far beyond homosexuality.

    When we refuse to be objective or try and pretend that facts don’t matter b/c they get in the way of our pithy comments we display the same sort of bad faith and dishonesty the d/prog and their corporate media allies use.

      E Howard Hunt in reply to CommoChief. | December 9, 2022 at 1:10 pm

      It is all aberrant. You seem to have an exquisite knowledge of the styles and degrees of sexual deviancy.

        CommoChief in reply to E Howard Hunt. | December 9, 2022 at 1:25 pm

        It aberrant, far more so than a garden variety homosexual. That’s entirely my point which you now seem to concede but in a passive aggressive manner.

        There’s lots of kink out there dude. I live in the real world which is full of all sorts of sin and sexual deviance. I prefer to be knowledgeable about the world around me instead of sticking my head in sand and pretending these odd ball weirdos don’t exist. IMO, your casual dismissal is how the weirdos took over the public schools, folks with your attitude either didn’t pay attention or thought it was inconsequential.

        For the record my sexual tastes run to the entirely orthodox and old fashioned monogamous relationship between one man and one woman. How bout you Slats? Which way do you swing?

          The Sorority Girls at Bama, really just about 1/4 of them to be fair, were very good teachers for an, at the time, naive country boy. My time in Germany when I was still single introduced me to all sorts of kink with German young women, some of it far too adventurous for my taste. Had to pass on what was offered more than once. Too freaky.

          I’m kinda square at the end of the day but if other adults want to let their freak flag fly then as long as it’s consensual and they don’t try and offload responsibility then go for it.

      henrybowman in reply to CommoChief. | December 9, 2022 at 7:41 pm

      “This dude ain’t ‘gay’. He is a self proclaimed non binary fetish freak”
      For a non-binary guy, you’ll note that not a single one of his kink videos are with women, and he has a “husband.”
      He’s gay. He just wants the cachet of being “fancy” gay (h/t Ali Wong).

        CommoChief in reply to henrybowman. | December 9, 2022 at 8:53 pm

        Yes, that’s true. Which was the point of my argument; he isn’t ‘just’ gay. He’s a whole lot of other things (pup fetish?) S/M bondage, cross dressing and who knows what all else.

        All of those are far beyond a dude who is specially attracted to other dudes; a garden variety homosexual. This dude is as the kids say ‘so very extra’.

    It’s not about homosexuality. If this guy IN CHARGE OF OUR NUCLEAR WASTE was hetrosexual and flaunting his S&M activies all over the place, he’d be cashiered, no question. And if this same heterosexual was TWICE arrested for felony theft at airports, he’d be prosecuted and wind up in prison.

    Homosexuals can be mentally stable (Richard Grenelle comes to mind), talented (Richard Grenelle comes to mind; Pete Butthead does not) and worthy of being the face of a high government office (Richard Grenelle comes to mind; Pete Butthead doesn’t.) This guy is mentally unstable and has no business being employed in the government.

      And the Griz?
      Does he come to mimd?
      Asking for a friend…

      f this guy IN CHARGE OF OUR NUCLEAR WASTE was hetrosexual and flaunting his S&M activies all over the place, he’d be cashiered, no question.

      I don’t believe that for a second. There would be no grounds. If you have no question about it, you’re literally insane, because you believe things with no basis in reality.

      And if this same heterosexual was TWICE arrested for felony theft at airports, he’d be prosecuted and wind up in prison.

      And indeed that is what will happen to him. A heterosexual would not be prosecuted or convicted any faster than this guy will.

Do the suitcases match? Was he trying to complete a set?

Do you think he only did this twice?

Oh FFS, this dude is obviously quite mentally ill. Does this surprise anyone?

    Morning Sunshine in reply to Paul. | December 9, 2022 at 12:28 pm

    I don’t know. Mentally Ill…. I think it is NOT that. I think he is seeking for attention and has never been told NO or faced consequences for his actions. He seems to be one of those people we have raised in the last 2 generations who have been allowed to take what they want and have someone else pay the cost and who have had excuses to explain away his anti-social behavior.

    Mentally ill is different. It is an actual deviancy of the mental workings. His mental workings seem to work as trained over his lifetime.

    and yes, I am using he/him on purpose

      You can find online some video interviews of him at an early age claiming that he was sent to a reorientation camp by his evil military Baptist father, there to be tortured Clockwork Orange style with extreme freezing and electrical probes. Then he professed a cure, after which he ran away and his folks never agreed to speak with him again. Somewhat screenplayish, to be frank. And if true, I wonder where he scraped up the moolah for an MIT doctorate. Unless they gave him a full ride in honor of his kink, which was a definite possibility during the Reif years.

        Morning Sunshine in reply to henrybowman. | December 10, 2022 at 11:26 am

        yeah I heard that too. I also heard that unlike most “survivors” of conversion therapy, he will not go on record with details of name, dates, and locations. The author I was reading said he has talked to many such survivors, and Brinton was the first to refuse to talk to him.

      Whatever this is, it isn’t attention-seeking. He was trying to avoid attention.

The FBI should get a search warrant for his home and return all the stolen bags to the victims!

Jail him and throw away the keys!

But he seemed so normal./

Victor Immature | December 9, 2022 at 12:46 pm

YThey is at it again.

When I saw the 1st story I felt like it wasn’t the first time. It’s gotta be a major pain in the butt to arrive at your destination and find you have no change of clothes at all and no luggage. Then you have to go through the process of filing a claim and following up which is a job in itself these days, Everyone looks to put it back in your court these days “you didn’t date the form and have it certified” .

But his fetish is more important than anyone elses life. This is the kind of crazy that serial killers show, rape and discard, I’m more important. You’d think his kind of position might have a more rigorous screening process.

What the hell does a “spent fuel” executive do?

    UnCivilServant in reply to swampdave. | December 9, 2022 at 2:27 pm

    I suppose there’s a requirement in the regs that the DoE check on the storage of those fuel rods (which are still perfectly usable in other types of reactors that we banned) every so often to see if there are any fines they can levy to steal some more money.

    He’s responsible for the stuff that every dirtbag terrorist in the world would love to get their hands on.

    Seems like a position for a sane, sober, mentally stable sort of person. But heck, when you “elect” a mental retard as POTUS, who knows?

    Milhouse in reply to swampdave. | December 10, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    He’s (or was) the deputy assistant secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy. What to do with spent nuclear fuel is a huge and unsolved issue; it shouldn’t be, because the technical problems were all solved long ago, but it is because the political problems are still there, so all the spent fuel from the last 70 years or so of nuclear power are still in temporary storage and need to be maintained while a permanent solution is found that is politically acceptable, and in the meantime the government (no matter who is in office) needs to have people in charge of such policy. Brinton’s qualifications seem sufficient and appropriate, and his views on what should be done with the waste seem rational.

BierceAmbrose | December 9, 2022 at 3:15 pm

He / She / Zee needs to be kept in pre-trial: he’s an ongoing threat to himself and luggage. Needs a whole set — one for each persona.

He could travel to California, walk into any luggage store and walk out no questions asked with all the luggage he could carry

Who was it who was saying “gets his clothes from lifting women’s luggage” explains his style sense?

I’d ask why every narrative starts with describing this persons sexual orientation and preferences. But asking would be pointless as the answer wouldn’t be very useful.

This all seems really simple. This person stole luggage, very valuable luggage apparently. End of story description. I don’t care about their skin color, sexual preferences, height, weight, hair color, eye color, gender, non-conformity issues, whatever, I don’t care. I don’t even care if they have a criminal record or not.

If they have committed a crime, or multiple crimes, they should be prosecuted. End of story. We should all be equal under the law regardless of our differences.

I’m pretty sure if I had stolen the luggage justice would have been swift.

Come to think of it, this shouldn’t even be a story. Well, other than an entry in a list of prosecuted individuals.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to gantzm. | December 9, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    Excellent point.

    henrybowman in reply to gantzm. | December 9, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    “I’d ask why every narrative starts with describing this persons sexual orientation and preferences.”

    Because they’re the privilege that got him his highly-placed government job in the Biden Administration.

      gonzotx in reply to henrybowman. | December 9, 2022 at 8:52 pm

      Actually, and I hate to say this, he worked in President Trumps administration,
      Sans the make up and
      Dresses however. Apparently a MIT grad, but didn’t anyone look at his social blasts?

        Milhouse in reply to gonzotx. | December 10, 2022 at 10:25 pm

        Huh? If he had a job in the Trump administration it’s not listed in his Wikipedia entry.

        henrybowman in reply to gonzotx. | December 11, 2022 at 7:53 pm

        Washington Blade reports in an article about the theft that “Brinton joined the U.S. Department of Energy this year.” So it doesn’t look like it.

    Milhouse in reply to gantzm. | December 10, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    He is being prosecuted. No less swiftly than you or I would have been. The reason his bizarre sexual life is constantly mentioned is that it’s what makes him stick out in people’s minds; it makes him newsworthy. Otherwise it would just be “some bureaucrat nobody’s ever heard of is a kleptomaniac”.

I’m just surprised at the number of people acting all amazed and stunned that a freak with several weird fetishes had one they didn’t know about, luggage. If I were those who got it stolen I wouldn’t take it back for any money.

    henrybowman in reply to diver64. | December 10, 2022 at 7:18 am

    Well, his other kinks were reportedly consensual.
    He makes a big thing about that in his videos.
    So it’s ironic that his charges in both thefts include one for “non-consensual.”

I hate his lipstick.. Gender appropriation, plain and simple..

Hope he does hard time, after a fair trial including, a jury of his peers, blah blah..

TBH I doubt he will ever go “upstate”.. Nope.. These people get a pass. They always get a pass. You can decide for yourselves who these people are..

If he stole the luggage to wear the clothes, how did he know they would fit? Did he scope out likely targets as they were checking in luggage?

This was news like a week ago amd
He did it months ago

Nothing wil happen, he’ll probably get his job. ACL, oh wait, he’s only on leave till we get tired of it
He’s a real Special pervert

    Milhouse in reply to gonzotx. | December 10, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    You have no basis for saying that. He’s being treated like any other suspected thief.

    The reason it took so long to get him on the Las Vegas charge was that the police were unable to identify him from the video, until the stories about the Minneapolis theft were published, and someone at the Las Vegas police recognized him as their suspect. So they went back the video, compared the image on them to the news stories, and charged him.

Subotai Bahadur | December 9, 2022 at 9:01 pm

UPDATE: One advantage of British papers being subservient to British politicians instead of American ones like our media is, is that they will investigate and report on American political scandals. The British newspaper, THE DAILY MAIL is reporting that the DOE will not fire Brinton despite a second formal charge,

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11521789/Republicans-renew-calls-Bidens-nonbinary-energy-official-Sam-Brinton-fired.html

Just in passing, since it involves airlines which are Federally regulated, besides fines he can get up to 5 years Federal prison time for each count.

Which is why they will make it all disappear.

Subotai Bahadur

    The leftist freaks running our country are seeking to subjudate us. They’re working at the behest of their Chicom and Soros masters. American has been ripped apart and sold piecemeal. Just look at the democrat/GOPe cabal we have in place so deep in our government.

    The ultimate goal here is to cause such chaos in our streets and in our institutions that we’ll beg the democrat/GOPe cabal for relief -which will come in the form of a Hitler, Stalin or a Mao.

    Sad to say: our country is done for. It’s too institutionally corrupt to ever rescue as 50 states (57, if you’re Obdumbo; 54, if you’re Biden).

    Our best hope is to secede; second-best hope is to fundemntally change the power of the federal government (which will never happen). Secession is coming. Or civil war, if secession is not tolerated by the left/swamp.

It’s time to stop with the “non-binary” characterization. From now on it’s “dude in a dress”.

Identifying as a super-intelligent shade of blue, I declare discrimination. Do you know how hard it is stealing clothes sight-unseen that match my palate?

Non-binary? All I see is a complete Zero. Definitely not The One.

Today in Daily Wire:

Brinton is now accused of stealing $1,700 worth of jewelry, $850 worth of clothing, and makeup worth $500 from the suitcase that he allegedly stole in Las Vegas.

Investigators said that “a white male adult wearing a white T-shirt with a large rainbow colored atomic nuclear symbol design” was seen on security camera footage taking the woman’s bag before leaving the airport.

Police claim they could not identify the person, so the case was closed, until investigators recognized Brinton due to the media coverage that he received last week for allegedly stealing luggage in Minnesota.

The jewelry alone is enough to sink him.

I do like that he was wearing his superhero costume, though.
