Sam Brinton, accused of multiple luggage thefts, was traveling on taxpayer dime to national nuclear security site


A little more than a year ago, former Department of Energy official Sam Brinton flew from Washington, D.C. to Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. That day, the 35-year-old “nonbinary” transsexual government official was on his way to the Department of Energy’s Nevada National Security Site.

On the way, he was videotaped stealing luggage from the airport in Las Vegas.

The latest twist in the twisted life of Sam Brinton is that he was flying on taxpayer-funded trip when he allegedly committed the crime of taking a woman’s designer luggage from the carousel at the baggage claim area, and casually leaving the airport with it.

The Functional Government Initiative requested the travel records showing Brinton’s itinerary, and show that Brinton flew on a United Airlines flight from Washington, DC, to Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas on July 6, 2022. Police say the suitcase had estimated $3,500 value of jewelry, clothing, and makeup, when Brinton stole it. He is also accused of similar heists in other airports.

Functional Government Initiative is a group that sets its sights on government waste and abuse.

“It’s outrageous that tax dollars transported Brinton to and from the scene of a crime, putting the American public unwittingly at the wheel of the getaway car,” Functional Government Initiative spokesperson Peter McGinnis told Fox News. “The federal government obviously needs a more stringent vetting process for senior-level positions. Senior officials committing petty crime while on the clock is a clear indication that something is dysfunctional in the personnel procedures.”

The story was first reported by Fox News.

Brinton, before being named to the Department of Energy by the Biden Administration, who put him in charge of spent nuclear fuel, founded the Trevor Project, which has been accused of grooming children online for sexual purposes, such as gender surgeries.

The Trevor Project advised the gay-aligned majority of the Anchorage Assembly to pass an ordinance that prohibits therapists from talking to children about how they might not want to change genders or how they might not be gay. The only way therapists in Anchorage can approach the topic of “gay” and “gender” is to affirm whatever the child says, or the therapists will be arrested and subject to massive fines.

Brinton’s purpose for traveling to the the Nevada National Security Site is unclear, but the secure site “help ensure the security of the United States and its allies by: supporting the stewardship of the nation’s nuclear deterrent; providing nuclear and radiological emergency response capabilities and training; contributing to key nonproliferation and arms control initiatives; executing national-level experiments in support of the National Laboratories; working with national security customers and other federal agencies on important national security activities; and providing long-term environmental stewardship of the NNSS’s Cold War legacy, according to the National Security Site website.

For his four-day trip, Brinton charged $1,951.50 to taxpayers on his expense report, according to Fox.

Brinton has an extensive social media history that includes his many passions. He is a founder of the controversial, anti-Christian Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and has given classes on kink sex.

Meanwhile, the American Nuclear Society has scrubbed a 2016 talk by Brinton from its website. Back in 2016, the scientists proudly invited him to speak about “his passion, nuclear waste policy and changing the outdated images of nuclear advocates.” In that year, the scientists referred to Brinton as a “he,” but Brinton now says he cannot be defined by gender.


  1. Okay I am just seeing this part of the whole Brinton story where Brinton spoke to the Anchorage Assembly. Then they passed legislation in Anchorage that prohibits therapists from doing anything other than “affirm” a child’s trans / gay stand or risk jail / massive fines.

    I don’t care which side of these issues you stand on; one would think that it is a therapists professional / ethical responsibility to explore with the patient all sides of a given issue. How can they actually help a patient work through their issue(s) if they don’t explore the pros and cons of the issue the patient is seeking their advice on? What if the child is not comfortable with this, but feels pushed into it by peer pressure? School or parents pushing them this direction? Or in the reverse they do feel that is what they are, but have the opposite issues of peer pressure or parents saying no? The only way to find out what the patient is actually feeling is to explore all sides of the issue and let the person make an informed decision on the issue? How can you expect the therapist to do their job if you tie one had behind their back and not let them fully counsel the patient?

    • The idea is to push Trans At All Costs Everywhere!! The companies making the puberty blockers want their money NOW!!! And in perpetuity

  2. Be pissed he was in the role.
    Be pissed he is a nut job.
    Be pissed he’s not doing jail time.

    But don’t get bent sideways he did what damn near everyone working for someone else does. Got reimbursed or covered for work travel.

    Unless there is a federal statute saying if you steal luggage you won’t be reimbursed, it’s a non issue.

    People travel for work.

  3. Gotta love the freudian typo in the first paragraph…
    Brinton needs to go to prison – and be put in solitary confinement, for life. You want to make a name for yourself and be an example? – Pay the price for your foolishness.

  4. Perversion is an illness. If more people have this illness, they hope to not be singled out as freaks. Without guidance, it is hoped that more children will give in to their confusion which is common in children who do not have a family to rely on for values, often seeking out attention that they are deficient in.

  5. I would say anyone who gives these lunatics any time at all at any level belongs in the coo coo farm with these freaks . Anyone who seriously acknowledges the Koolaide these grifters are serving up it mentally disturbed and or profiting off this modern day freak show through some new government program, how sick are these people, mentally I’ll and very sick people !

    • Whoa DM, Are you implying Christopher Constant Felix Rivera Forrest Dunbar Austin Quinn-Davidson aka “Tom Sconce” belong in the coo coo farm with the rest of the freaks???
      Simply for spending taxpayer dollars for help from mentally disturbed grifters developing municipal government regulation and penalties for proper guidelines indoctrinating Anchorage youth into their sick and demented views of their own sexual appetite?
      These fine upstanding politicians were elected by the people of Anchorage to represent them AND their families to the best of their ability!
      So now you can settle down and rest assured they are doing the best they can to serve their constituents who I hope I never have the pleasure of meeting.

  6. He is a brazen dislikeable person at this time in my opinion. How heartbreaking to his family no doubt.

  7. Wait for it. The libs will vote for him and gladly let him steal their luggage. He is a liberal hero.
