A Biden administration employee who is openly “gender-fluid” was reportedly charged with a felony last month after allegedly stealing a woman’s suitcase from Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) International Airport.
According to a criminal complaint cited by the Daily Wire, Sam Brinton, deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposal at the Department of Energy, removed a luggage tag from a navy blue Vera Bradley suitcase bag, dropped it into his handbag, and then left the area quickly.
Sam Brinton is the subject of an investigation being conducted by Minneapolis-St Paul (MSP) International Airport authorities, according to The Daily Wire.
According to the complaint, Brinton left the airport in an Uber and checked into the InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront hotel.
Two days later, Briton returned to MSP with the same bag and flew back to Washington, D.C.
According to records and video surveillance, the suitcase belonged to a female passenger from New Orleans who flew into the MSP on a Delta flight. Earlier that day, she reported to law enforcement that her bag and the contents inside – worth about $2,325 – had been stolen from the baggage claim area.
Three weeks later, the criminal complaint alleges that Brinton returned from Europe with the bag on October 9 on video surveillance footage from Dulles International Airport in Virginia.
That same day, Brinton was contacted by authorities and asked if he had taken anything that wasn’t his.
Brinton allegedly replied, “Not that I am aware of,” but later admitted taking the bag that contained his clothes.
Two hours later, he called police and apologized for not being “completely honest,” adding he took the bag thinking it was his out of exhaustion. As Brinton allegedly realized it wasn’t his bag after opening it up at the hotel, he “grew nervous” and “didn’t know what to do.”
Briton allegedly told authorities he removed the clothes from the suitcase and returned to Washington with the bag because it would have been “weirder” if he had left the bag at the hotel. However, no clothing was recovered from the hotel room, according to authorities.
Hennepin County court is scheduled to hear Brinton’s case on December 19.
Ultimately, Brinton was charged with felony theft of movable property without consent, a crime punishable by a five-year sentence or a $10,000 fine, as noted by FOX News.
It is a shame that someone like Sam Brinton, who is supposed to be a role model for the LGBT community, would stoop so low as to commit theft. Unfortunately, because Brinton is protected by the media and the Biden administration, it is highly unlikely that justice will be served in this case. If Brinton were not openly “gender-fluid” or employed by the Biden administration, it is doubtful that he would have been given such preferential treatment. The fact that he was only charged with a felony, when he could have easily been charged with a more serious crime, is evidence of this double standard. It is high time that Brinton is fired from his position at the Department of Energy and punished equally under the law. Only then will justice be served.
