Sam Brinton, the nonbinary former senior Biden Department of Energy official, has learned his fate after pleading no contest to theft charges. He was ordered to pay restitution to the victim of the theft of $3,670.74 and a $500 fine which included court fees, Fox News reported.

But he escaped doing any time behind bars as Judge Ann Zimmerman handed him a 180-day suspended sentence and ordered him to “stay out of trouble.”

“In early December, Las Vegas prosecutors charged Brinton with grand larceny of an item valued between $1,200 and $5,000. Police accused Brinton of stealing a suitcase with a total estimated worth of $3,670 on July 6 at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. The bag contained jewelry valued at $1,700, clothing worth $850, and makeup valued at $500.”


Fox News reported: “A Las Vegas detective wrote in a police report related to the incident that a woman traveling from Washington, D.C., to Las Vegas on July 6 reported one of her checked bags missing shortly after the incident. Police then reviewed security camera footage and observed a white male adult wearing a white T-shirt with a large rainbow-colored atomic nuclear symbol design removing baggage that matched the victim’s description of her missing bag before quickly exiting the airport. However, following a brief investigation, detectives closed the case after they were unable to identify the suspect.”

In January 2022, a felony arrest warrant was issued for Brinton after he was accused of stealing a woman’s luggage at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, the New York Post reported.

“Brinton, who made history as one of the federal government’s first gender-fluid officials, allegedly stole luggage from another traveler at Harry Reid International Airport in Vegas on an unknown date, according to the outlet,” The Post said. “Details about the alleged theft are scarce, but 8 News Now stated Brinton, 35, was charged with grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000.”

Georgia Republican R​ep. ​Andrew Clyde and 15 other Republicans sent a letter to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm demanding that Brinton resign.

“We write to respectfully demand the resignation of the Department of Energy’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition, Sam Brinton, who was recently put on leave following felony theft charges,” the letter said.

“Despite not checking a bag before flying out of Washington, D.C., surveillance footage reveals Brinton taking and leaving with luggage from the baggage carousel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport on September 16th.1 After initially lying to the police, Brinton later admitted to taking a suitcase valued at $2,325 and hiding the owner’s belongings in a hotel room.2 Alarmingly, Brinton has been observed using the stolen suitcase on multiple trips to Washington, D.C.3 , and was ultimately charged with felony theft, which carries a penalty of up to five years imprisonment, a $10,000 fine, or both,” it said.

“As you are aware, your Department issued notice that Sam Brinton was placed on leave without providing crucial context clarifying that Brinton’s recent employment status was the result of a felony charge. As an appointed official, Sam Brinton represents both your Department and the United States. It is simply not possible for an individual to represent American values and simultaneously violate the felony laws of the land. Brinton’s actions, along with your Department’s lack of transparency when dealing with this matter, reflect poorly on the Department of Energy, and they raise concern as to the Biden Administration’s priorities when appointing high-ranking officials. It is imperative that we do not allow a person charged with a felony to influence America’s policies,” the lawmakers said.

“Furthermore, our nation is in the midst of an energy crisis – a crisis that was unquestionably created by the Biden Administration’s reckless, radical, and failed policies. Your Department should be dedicated to a pro-American energy agenda, focusing on restoring energy independence and lowering energy prices across the nation. However, to many Americans, it appears that you are more interested in playing politics and protecting an employee who admitted to felony theft to police than providing real solutions for hard-working Americans,” they said.

“Therefore, we demand the resignation of Sam Brinton, and we implore you to set aside petty politics and appoint only the most qualified and dedicated individuals to influence America’s energy sector,” they said as they asked for a response by December 30.
