It turns out that non-binary Biden nuke official Sam Brinton carries more baggage than the Biden administration can handle.
35-year-old drag queen Samuel Otis Brinton, who is facing a pair of felony charges in two states for allegedly—not once, but twice—stealing luggage containing women's clothes, was President Joe Biden's cross-dressing, "gender-fluid" deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) up until sometime Monday evening.
Now, the sticky-fingered former DOE employee, who uses "they/them/theirs" pronouns, must identify as unemployed.
"Sam Brinton is no longer a DOE employee," a DOE spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Beast last night, but declined to elaborate. "By law, the Department of Energy cannot comment further on personnel matters," the DOE representative added.
All mentions of the ex-nuclear waste chief have since been nuked from the official DOE website, with the alleged kleptomaniac's biography scrubbed and Brinton's profile removed from the Office of Nuclear Energy's leadership page. The office's organizational chart also lists Brinton's former position as "Vacant," and Brinton's government email has been deactivated.

Brinton was placed on a leave of absence after being charged with felony theft for swiping a woman's Vera Bradley luggage from a baggage carousel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) International Airport on Sept. 16. After a two-day stay at a luxury hotel, Brinton was captured on security camera checking the 26-inch roller bag and its contents, which were collectively worth over $2,300, on a flight back to the nation's capital and, again, traveling with the victim's stolen suitcase on a return trip from Europe.

A warrant was issued Thursday for Brinton's arrest after authorities in Nevada identified the frequent flyer as the suspect who snatched yet another woman's luggage on July 6 at Harry Reid International Airport near Las Vegas, based on Brinton's distinctive rainbow-themed atomic T-shirt that matched a selfie on Brinton's now-private Instagram account from the same day.
Brinton was caught, once again, on surveillance footage making off from the airport's baggage-claim area with the female victim's $320 hard-shell bag that held jewelry, clothing, and makeup valued at more than $3,000, according to police statements.

Both times, Brinton was filmed fiddling with the luggage tags and then fleeing with the stolen property in-hand.
If convicted of either felony, Brinton could face up to 10 years behind bars and a $10,000 fine for the grand larceny charge in the Silver State, and five years of prison time plus a $10,000 fine for the theft offense in Minnesota. In the latter case, Brinton is summoned to show up early next week at an in-person Minneapolis courtroom appearance on the afternoon of Dec. 19.
Brinton, who was pocketing a taxpayer-funded six-figure salary, submitted a request for all preliminary hearings to be held remotely due to "financial" and "logistical travel difficulties" traveling between Minnesota and Washington, D.C. But, during the weekend prior to the request, the seasoned traveler had no issue hosting a spanking seminar at a Los Angeles kink conference.
