In a time when former President Trump is being investigated for everything anyone can imagine with no charges being brought forth for any of the accusations, others in the Biden administration have not been investigated at all.
The famous laptop of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, which was brushed aside by Democrat officials has now been proven, as the former president previously said, to contain information that, to say the least, should be investigated.
However, it seems that that is not the only case of lack of integrity in the Biden administration. The administration has appointed officials in high places that have unchecked dubious backgrounds. Sam Brinton, for instance.
Brinton is a gender-fluid nuclear engineer who has a background of involvement in less-than-stellar activities. In 2015, Brinton defended an underage gay prostitution website, “Rentboy.com,” Zero Hedge reports. Daily Mail reports that Brinton is a drag queen and that Brinton is open about “unconventional sexual proclivities such as animal role-play on social media”. Brinton performs as “Sister Ray Dee O’Active” and participates in a group called the Order of Perpetual Indulgence – a non-profit group of drag queens who dress as nuns to raise awareness of sexual intolerance and transphobia.
Preferring They/Them pronouns, 34-year-old Brinton is also an LGBTQ activist. As Brinton himself described in a publication from his alma mater, MIT, he got dual degrees in Nuclear Engineering and TPP to “save the world from nuclear waste-related environmental disaster.” TPP is Tertiary Preparation Pathway, which is described as “a bridging program that allows you to experience university life before jumping into a full degree.”
In June 2022, Brinton was appointed Deputy Assistant Secretary for Spent fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy in the Department of Energy, a senior position that is significant and comes with demands of responsibility.

Now, this official in the Biden administration has been charged with felony theft. The senior Department of Energy official was charged with felony theft after stealing a piece of luggage from the Minneapolis airport in September – shortly before taking a leave of absence.
Sam Brinton allegedly took a Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the luggage carousel at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport (MSP) on September 16, Fox News reports, citing a criminal complaint filed Oct. 16 in Minnesota state court.
According to court filings, surveillance footage showed Brinton taking the luggage, then removing its tag identifying the owner, before leaving the airport. Brinton was observed using the luggage during at least two other trips to Washington DC – on Sept. 18 and Oct. 9, Zero Hedge wrote.
When a police officer called Brinton on Oct. 9 for questioning, Brinton confirmed that he still possessed the suitcase, but then claimed it was his. “If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it, but I don’t have any clothes for another individual,” Brinton told the officer, adding “That was my clothes when I opened the bag.”
After stating that his clothes were in the bag, Brinton later admitted that he had made a mistake about that, claiming to be “tired”. Two hours later, Brinton called back and apologized for not being “completely honest,” adding that taking the wrong bag was a mistake because he was tired.
“DEFENDANT said when they opened the bag at the hotel, they realized it was not theirs,” reads the court filing. “DEFENDANT got nervous people would think they stole the bag and did not know what to do. DEFENDANT stated they left the clothes from the bag inside the drawers in the hotel room.”
So out of nervousness, Brinton decided not to rectify the “mistake” but instead to compound it, in a clear case of avoiding responsibility. The nuclear official initially decided to hide what he had done.
Daily Mail reported that No clothes were ever found at the hotel and at the time of the complaint’s filing in October, Brinton had not returned the bag.
Fox News reported:
Brinton was ultimately charged with felony theft of a movable property without consent, a charge that could result in a five-year sentence, a $10,000 fine, or both.
Minnesota-based outlet Alpha News first reported the charges against Brinton on Monday. Brinton was placed on leave about a month ago and another official was named as a replacement in the interim earlier this month, according to the Exchange Monitor which tracks government hires. The DOE didn’t explain why Brinton took leave at the time.
Brinton has taken a leave of absence from his government job.
Daily Mail reported that Kim Petry, the acting deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel, has been standing in for Brinton since his absence. Petry told coworkers she had been asked to stay on as head of the spent fuel office “for the foreseeable future” by Kathryn Huff, assistant secretary for nuclear energy. “I should have another update for all of you in a month or so” Petry wrote in the email as seen by the Exchange Monitor.
Brinton’s next court hearing is on December 19.
