An influential LGBTQ activist who works in the Biden administration apparently has a habit of stealing luggage.
Sam Brinton, who claims to be one of the first “openly genderfluid individuals in federal government leadership,” stole luggage from Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, according to 8 News Now.
Sources told the outlet Thursday that a felony warrant was issued for Brinton’s arrest on charges of grand larceny. No additional information was provided.
Alpha News broke the story late last month that Brinton, a deputy assistant secretary in the Department of Energy’s Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition, was charged with felony theft for stealing a traveler’s luggage from a baggage carousel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The incident allegedly took place Sept. 16, but Brinton wasn’t charged until late October.
He was in town for the Out for Undergrad Engineering Conference at the InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront hotel. Upon his arrival, he allegedly went to baggage claim and stole a woman’s blue Vera Bradley roller bag, ripped the luggage tag from the bag, and then left the area at a “quick pace.”
He didn’t check a bag when he left Washington, D.C. and therefore had no reason to stop at baggage claim in the first place, according to a criminal complaint.
Brinton used the stolen bag on his return trip to D.C. and during an October excursion to Europe, the complaint says.
A group of House Republicans called on Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm to remove Brinton from his position in a letter this week.
“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,” they wrote. “It is simply not possible for an individual to represent American values and simultaneously violate the felony laws of the land.”
Prior to working in government, Brinton was an anti-conversion therapy activist who taught “Kink 101” workshops on college campuses, according to The National Pulse. A photo from one of these workshops shows Brinton in a dress as he stands over three males in leather dog masks.
Brinton discussed his “pup play” fetish in a 2016 Metro Weekly article, The Pulse reports.
“One of the hardest things about being a handler is that I’ve honestly had people ask, ‘Wait, you have sex with animals?’” Brinton said. “They believe it’s abusive, that it’s taking advantage of someone who may not be acting up to a level of human responsibility … The other misperception is that I have some really messed up background, like, did I have some horrible childhood trauma that made me like to have sex with animals?”
Brinton is also a member of the sacrilegious drag queen society called “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” which mocks Catholic nuns with names like “Sister Porn Again,” “Sister Chastity Boner,” and “Sister Roz Erection,” according to American Greatness.
Brinton, who goes by the name “Sister Ray Dee O’Active,” attended the group’s 2021 “Lavender Mass” where he paid tribute to “Daddy Fauci,” The Pulse reports.
According to the Washington Examiner, Brinton once talked with college students about “how he enjoys tying up his significant other like a table, and eating his dinner on him while he watches Star Trek.”
