Nonbinary Biden Nuke Staffer Nabbed for Felony Theft

Sam Brinton shows the lengths to which this administration will go to promote its DEI agenda.

Somewhere, someone told someone else within the Biden administration that Sam Brinton would be a good fit as our nation’s deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition.

That someone should be fired. So should every person along the way who failed to flag Brinton as a national security risk.

Brinton, who was placed on leave a month ago but apparently still serves in Joe Biden’s Department of Energy, was recently charged with felony theft.

Your tax dollars at work.

Yes, it seems Brinton, an MIT grad and one of the poster boys for Joe Biden’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion agenda, was caught on videotape stealing a $2,325 Vera Bradley suitcase from the luggage carousel at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport. As the New York Post reports:

Brinton, who uses they/them pronouns, was captured on surveillance video grabbing the luggage and removing its ID tag identifying the owner, the filings state. They [sic] were later seen using the Vera Bradley suitcase on at least two occasions, while traveling to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and Oct. 9, investigators said.

Brinton initially denied stealing the suitcase to police officers, but later claimed they [sic] took it by mistake and still had it in their [sic] possession. “If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it, but I don’t have any clothes for another individual,” Brinton first told the officer. “That was my clothes when I opened the bag.”

However, Brinton called the officer back two hours after their first conversation and confessed to not being “completely honest.” They [sic] said they [sic sic sic] accidentally grabbed the wrong bag at the luggage carousel due to exhaustion.

Uh-huh. So it seems that not only is Brinton a thief; he’s also a liar. But, hey, at least he has great taste in ladies’ luggage.

He also has a flair for the dramatic, having been known to perform as “Sister Ray Dee O'Active” while participating in a group called the Order of Perpetual Indulgence — a group of drag queens who exercise their religious bigotry by dressing up as nuns to “raise awareness of sexual intolerance and transphobia.”

But the thing is, Sam Brinton should never have been hired. And here we should note that he wasn’t hired by the Biden administration but by the Trump administration, in which he served as a nuclear waste adviser. (Among the millions of employees in our federal government, we suspect that this one slipped through the cracks. Or perhaps Brinton hadn’t been as, er, demonstrative as he is now, and probably hadn’t worn that garish green evening gown during the Trump administration’s interview process.)

Back in July, The National Pulse raised serious concerns about the hiring of Brinton, citing “undue political influence and preferences” during the process. According to a letter sent to the Office of Personnel Management by a DoE whistleblower:

Brinton’s “background is limited to select advocacy work and an academic background at the graduate-degree level which together satisfy requirements for the competitive placement of a qualified GS-11 in federal career service, not a high-standing member of the SES,” explained the employee. SES is short for Senior Executive Service, a civil service grade equivalent to general officer or flag officer rank.

“There is concern that making personnel selection decisions for career positions based on political considerations and gender-fluid identity as means of exerting political influence over the workforce, and at the expense of other better qualified candidates, is not the intent of the U.S. civil service laws or the U.S. constitution,” continued the letter, signed by a “Long serving public servant at the U.S. Department of Energy.”

These seem like legitimate concerns. Apparently, they were ignored.

A number of years ago, a young man named Bradley Manning, who now goes by the name “Chelsea,” was inducted into the U.S. Army and entrusted with access to some of our nation’s most sensitive national security secrets. Manning, like Brinton, was deeply and profoundly disturbed, and no one had the good sense to wonder whether our nation might be better off with him in a less sensitive role somewhere else within the Army.

We see where that got us, and it should’ve served as a lasting lesson.

But it’s to Joe Biden’s credit, we suppose, that he didn’t put Brinton in charge of our nation’s nuclear football.
