How many times have you heard it said that the government is full of
thieves, crooks, and the like.
As if there was ever any doubt, let us turn to the latest example: Sam
Brinton, one of the first “openly genderfluid individuals in federal government
leadership,” has been accused of stealing a woman’s luggage from the
Minneapolis airport. The Vera Bradley suitcase in question was worth $2,325.
Because the value of the stolen property is over $1,000, Brinton is being
charged with a felony. In the state of Minnesota, this is punishable by a prison
sentence up to five years and a fine up to $10,000.
Brinton has told authorities multiple conflicting stories. Initially, Brinton
denied stealing the bag, then bizarrely claimed he had found his own clothes
in the bag, and later went on to claim he did the wrong bag but had done so
by “mistake” due to being “tired.” Even with this seemingly plausible defense,
there are several glaring problems with. First, Brinton had never packed any
luggage to begin with. Second, security camera footage from the airport
shows Brinton removing the tag that identified the owner.
While none of this could reasonably be classified as “business as usual,”
what follows next is rather predictable. The White House has not moved to fire
Brinton, or indeed, announced any sort of disciplinary action whatsoever other
than a “leave of absence.” As of this writing, the mainstream media has not
even reported on it. Don’t count on CNN, NBC, or ABC—reporting actual
news falls to outlets such as The New York Post (see their story here), Alpha
News (see their story here) and The Flame.
Brinton’s job is to dispose of the country’s nuclear waste. Brinton himself
has now become radioactive. His criminal hearing is scheduled for December 2022.
