The Biden administration’s nuclear waste removal official, Sam Brinton, who identifies as non-binary, has just been accused of stealing someone’s luggage.
This is the second time this has happened recently.
Brinton is currently on leave but this pattern of behavior raises questions about Biden’s judgement in appointing this person in the first place.
The New York Post reports:
Non-binary Biden nuclear official Sam Brinton accused in second luggage heist
A Biden administration Energy Department official who allegedly stole a woman’s suitcase from a Minneapolis airport in September has been accused of another luggage heist at a Las Vegas airport.
A felony warrant on grand larceny charges was issued on Thursday for Sam Brinton, the deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy, The Post can confirm.
Brinton, who made history as one of the federal government’s first gender-fluid officials, allegedly stole luggage from another traveler at Harry Reid International Airport in Vegas on an unknown date, according to the outlet.
Details about the alleged theft are scarce, but court records viewed by The Post showed that Brinton, 35, was charged with grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000.
The energy official, who uses they/them pronouns, reportedly has sticky fingers for suitcases.
Brinton was placed on leave from the Department of Energy after they were charged with felony theft for reportedly snatching a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase from baggage claim at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport on Sept. 16, according to court documents.
This is such a bizarre story.

Maybe this person shouldn’t have such a high level job.
