US nuclear official and LGBTQ activist in suitcase trouble

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “US nuclear official and LGBTQ activist in suitcase trouble”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The top US official in charge of handling nuclear waste has been charged with stealing a woman’s baggage worth more than $2,300 at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport this fall. Sam Brinton made headlines earlier this year for becoming the first “openly genderfluid” kink-lifestyle practitioner in federal leadership. 

According to court documents obtained by local outlet Alpha News, which broke the story on Monday evening, surveillance footage showed Brinton taking a Vera Bradley suitcase off the baggage carousel at MSP on September 16. The action was puzzling because the official had flown into Minnesota from Washington, DC without any checked bags. Brinton then returned to DC with the bag in tow, and used it again on a trip to Europe. 

“If I had taken the wrong bag, I am happy to return it, but I don’t have any clothes for another individual. That was my clothes when I opened the bag,” Brinton reportedly told police in the initial interview, after coming back from Europe on October 9. 

The official later admitted to taking someone else’s bag and leaving the clothes that were inside in the hotel room, apologizing for not being “completely honest.”

No clothing was recovered from the hotel room, and the victim never got her bag back, even after police instructed Brinton on how to do so. The estimated value of the bag and its contents is around $2,325, according to the complaint.
