(RepublicanWire.org) – Sam Brinton, the controversial “gender fluid” official who works in the Biden administration at the U.S. The Department of Energy was charged with felony theft last month after allegedly stealing a woman’s luggage at MSP Airport according to media reports.

Brinton allegedly stole women’s luggage worth around $2,000 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) International Airport. According to the report, Brinton lied to police numerous times before surveillance footage proved the case. He eventually came clean to the cops.

Brinton is reportedly on leave from the DOE. According to Alphanews: “Law enforcement at the Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) International Airport were alerted to a missing suitcase in the baggage claim area on Sept. 16. The adult female victim said she flew into MSP on a Delta flight from New Orleans and went to retrieve her checked bag at carousel seven.

“Airport records confirmed the navy blue Vera Bradley roller bag arrived at 4:40 p.m. but was missing from the carousel.

“So law enforcement reviewed video surveillance footage from the baggage claim area and observed Brinton removing a navy blue roller bag from carousel seven, according to a criminal complaint.

“The complaint says Brinton removed a luggage tag from the bag, placed it into a handbag he was carrying, and “then left the area at a quick pace.” Brinton arrived at MSP Airport around 4:27 p.m. on an American Airlines flight from Washington, D.C., but did not check a bag, meaning he had no reason to visit baggage claim, according to the complaint.”

Brinton said when he joined the Biden admin:

“It’s official. As of June 19th, I now serve my nation as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy in the Department of Energy.”

From The Department of Energy:
