Back in the fall, a Biden administration official was charged with stealing checked bags from baggage claim. They claimed it was a misunderstanding, but then it started coming out that this happened multiple times.
The Deputy Assistant Secretary for Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition at the Department of Energy oversees nuclear materials and their trustworthiness matters. Sam Brinton’s trustworthiness was called into question, and had to step aside from their role.
This was a political problem because they’re also an activist known for being the “first openly gender-fluid person in federal government leadership.”
With all of the publicity this brought, though, the internet figured out that apparently they’ve been stealing luggage for awhile and wearing the clothes they find inside? A fashion designer had their bag stolen five years ago. They saw the story on television of the latest thefts on television, and saw photos of Brinton… wearing their custom-designed clothes that had been in the bag!

Indeed, the designer had contemporaneously posted photos of the outfits back in 2018. And Brinton can be seen wearing the outfits. That checks out.
Those asking if her claim as of 2018 is confirmed, that is a separate question.
We we know:
– the fabric matches
– it wouldn’t be the first time the baggage bandit struck https://t.co/TqGdXozGjv

I don’t care about their personal life, I respect their activism, but mostly I worry that this has been going on for years and they require serious security clearance to be in charge of nuclear materials and it never came up – but the internet figured it out?
[…] When I was a kid, New York airports used to check baggage claim tags against the bags you were taking from the airport. That doesn’t happen any longer, but there are cameras everywhere! You just need the airline or airppot to care enough to look. And sometimes they do! […]
