The “non-binary” Biden administration official who stole a woman’s suitcase from the baggage carousel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport three months ago has reportedly done it all over again, except this time at a different airport.
“An energy department official is accused of stealing luggage from Harry Reid International Airport,” Las Vegas station KLAS reported Thursday afternoon.
“A felony warrant was issued for Sam Brinton, a deputy assistant secretary. … The charge is for grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000,” according to the station.
This stunning bombshell comes only days after a coalition of House Republicans penned a letter to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm demanding that she fire Brinton, whose official title is Deputy Assistant Secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy.
Employing Sam Brinton after his felony charge and admission of guilt exemplifies the Left’s adherence to soft-on-crime policies, refusal to deliver accountability, and disrespect for our government agencies.
It’s clearly time for Sam Brinton to resign.

“As an appointed official, Sam Brinton represents both your Department and the United States. It is simply not possible for an individual to represent American values and simultaneously violate the felony laws of the land,” the letter reads.
“Brinton’s actions, along with your Department’s lack of transparency when dealing with this matter, reflect poorly on the Department of Energy, and they raise concern as to the Biden Administration’s priorities when appointing high-ranking officials. It is imperative that we do not allow a person charged with a felony to influence America’s policies,” it continues.
As previously reported, Brinton flew into the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport from Washington, D.C., on Sept. 16th. He then proceeded to the baggage carousel, where he reportedly swiped a luxury Vera Bradley suitcase worth an estimated $2,325, removed the identification tags, and then left.
After the owner of the suitcase complained about her missing luggage, the authorities tracked the suitcase to Brinton, who initially denied he’d take someone else’s luggage but quickly changed his story a few hours later.
“When Brinton … was confronted by police nearly a month later, they initially denied stealing the bag — insisting their clothes were inside the suitcase at the time,” according to the New York Post.
But Brinton “quickly backtracked and claimed they had taken the piece of luggage by mistake,” the Post notes.
Yet this claim was later contradicted by new evidence showing that, despite him claiming to have taken the luggage by accident, he’d continued using it for a month straight.
He was “captured on surveillance using the same suitcase on at least two trips to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and Oct. 9,” according to the Post.

And so he’s apparently both a liar and a thief. A habitual one, at that. One who’s become so notorious that even Juanita Broaddrick has taken note of him.
Holy Shit! There is a felony warrant out for Sam Brinton for yet another luggage theft…. This time in Las Vegas while he was on leave for stealing luggage in Minneapolis. pic.twitter.com/sjk7YWrCC8

Yet, as previously recorded, the vast majority of the establishment press chose to completely and blatantly ignore Brinton’s initial crime. The same thing appears to be occurring again, with ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, etc., not having run a single story about his latest theft as of Friday morning.
Why a lack of coverage? As noted earlier, Brinton identifies as so-called “non-binary,” meaning he’s a member of the LGBT community. The reason the media is ignoring his crime is likely because they’re trying to protect either the Biden administration or the LGBT community.
Meanwhile, Brinton has been charged with felony theft and now faces up to five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine as per his initial theft. It’s not clear how much time he faces as per his latest theft.
But despite all this, he still remains technically employed by the administration and has simply been put on leave, ergo why Republicans have been pressuring Granholm to take some action.
“Employing Brinton after both the felony theft charge and his admission of guilt exemplifies the Left’s adherence to soft-on-crime policies, refusal to deliver accountability, and disrespect for our government agencies,” Clyde, the congressman who penned the letter to Granholm, said in a separate statement.
“It’s clearly time for Sam Brinton to resign his post at the Department of Energy and for the Biden Administration to begin employing skilled individuals dedicated to fixing the crises created by President Biden’s failed policies,” he added.
The public agrees:
Great, now we have to see Sam Brinton’s disgusting face for the next 24 hours.
Stole someone’s luggage AGAIN.
Fire and charge that klepto creep already. Scum of the Earth. The Biden regime is a flesh-eating cancer to our nation at all levels.

Why hasn’t the Biden admin fired disgraced Sam Brinton?
Perhaps it’s obvious to many, but to fire “them”, would enrage the often boisterous base. The lack of action only further proves that democrats are pandering to the “check the box” individuals. Take action Biden admin.

@POTUS if you don’t fire Sam Brinton, it sets a very bad precedent
