A Hollywood script writer couldn’t draw more colorful—or odd—characters than the Biden administration managed to collect.
Now one of the strangest sideshows to emerge over the past year is about to play out in court.
And a judge in Ilhan Omar’s backyard kicked things off by giving this former Biden regime official a bad day.
Apparently in its quest to collect “diverse” characters the Biden administration managed to find itself a kleptomaniac.
The story first broke after Sam Brinton, Biden’s “non-binary” former Nuclear Waste Chief, was caught on camera snagging an apparently irresistible piece of Vera Bradley baggage at an airport in Minneapolis.
Alpha News broke the story reporting that “Sam Brinton, one of the first ‘openly genderfluid individuals in federal government leadership,’ was charged with felony theft [in October] after allegedly stealing a woman’s luggage at MSP Airport . . . Airport records confirmed the navy blue Vera Bradley roller bag arrived at 4:40 p.m. but was missing from the carousel.”
When detectives started digging through surveillance footage they found more evidence that the former government employee has sticky fingers.
Brinton made to appear in person despite his pleas over his “employment situation”
Not only might Brinton face the repercussions of his crime, but he also had to deal with the humiliation in person on Wednesday—and face the rigors of a chilly Minnesota winter in the process.

Brinton had explained that he didn’t want to make the trip due to extensive media attention and drama related to his “employment situation.”
But the judge presiding over the case quickly popped his balloon explaining that he has to follow the same rules as other accused criminals.
Brinton was released without bail, causing women with high end luggage brands everywhere to clutch their bags closely.
While the judge apparently doesn’t consider him a flight risk, Brinton still faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine for swiping strangers’ belongings.
Allegedly stole a bag valued at over $2,300
The criminal complaint against Brinton alleged that Brinton “removed a luggage tag from the bag, placed it into a handbag he was carrying, and ‘then left the area at a quick pace.’ Brinton arrived at MSP Airport around 4:27 p.m. on an American Airlines flight from Washington, D.C., but did not check a bag, meaning he had no reason to visit baggage claim.”
Incredibly, the bag was worth a jaw-dropping $2,325.
“[P]olice questioned Brinton about the missing bag in an Oct. 9 phone call and asked him directly if he ‘took anything that did not belong’ to him,” Alpha News reported. “‘Not that I know of,’ Brinton allegedly responded. He later admitted to taking the bag but said the clothes inside were his, according to the complaint . . . Brinton allegedly called the investigating officer two hours later and apologized for not being ‘completely honest.’ This time Brinton said he took the bag because he was tired and thought it was his.”
Later it was discovered Brinton also swiped another woman’s bag from a Los Vegas airport.

The Department of Energy won’t comment on this case, but apparently the administration has little interest in standing by the baggage snatcher since he hasn’t worked for the government since December 12.
The fact that Brinton was ever in charge of anything within the government—let alone the nuclear waste program—brings up all kinds of questions about the Biden Regime’s vetting process.
