New to PJ Media:
On June 29, Sam Brinton announced his new position as Deputy Assistant Secretary for the US Department of Energy’s Office of Waste and Spent Fuel Disposal, and tweeted happily for being “one of the first, if not the first, openly gender fluid individuals in federal government leadership.” He attached a photo of himself, apparently taken in his office, showing him in lipstick and a red sleeveless belted jumpsuit (or something like that) with American flag-themed high heels and a chain necklace. . Apparently, he has a novel way of amassing such outfits, as he’s just been charged with theft for stealing a woman’s luggage at an airport.
According to a Monday report in Minnesota’s Alpha News, Brinton, who gleefully flaunts his perversions, was arrested last month, but the Alpha News report is the first time the arrest has been made public. Why didn’t the Biden administration come clean early on and announce weeks ago that one of its top “diversity and inclusion” employees had been arrested? To ask the question is to answer it.
It all started on September 16, when a woman who had just flown to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) notified airport officials that her bag was missing. “Airport records confirmed that Vera Bradley’s navy blue roller suitcase arrived at 4:40 p.m., but was not on the carousel,” Alpha News notes.
Video footage showed the bag had been taken by none other than the deputy assistant secretary for the US Department of Energy’s Office of Waste and Spent Fuel Disposal. Brinton had also just arrived at MSP, but had not documented a suitcase and therefore had no reason to be in the baggage claim area. Brinton, says Alpha News, “left the airport in an Uber to check into the InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront Hotel, where he checked in with the blue bag.” Then on September 18, he returned to MSP to fly back to Washington and had the bag with him.
Brinton apparently really liked this woman’s bag: “Surveillance video from Dulles International Airport shows Brinton traveling with the bag on an October 9 return trip from Europe.” That same day, the police asked her if she had taken “something that did not belong to her”. Brinton replied: “Not that I know of.”
Later, however, Brinton admitted that he had taken the bag, but insisted that he had somehow come to pack his own clothes. “If I took the wrong bag, I’m happy to return it,” Brinton told police, “but I don’t have clothes for someone else. Those were my clothes when I opened the bag.”
There is more. Read the rest here.
