Brinton, who identifies as “non-binary” and uses they/them pronouns, worked as deputy assistant secretary for the Office of Nuclear Energy before being sacked after two separate charges of airport luggage theft.
The Biden administration and sympathetic media outlets had previously celebrated Brinton’s appointment as the first gender-fluid senior government official.
Asya Khamsin, who identified herself as a Tanzanian fashion designer, said that she had lost her bag in 2018 at Ronald Reagan National Airport.
After hearing the news of Brinton’s other luggage-theft charges, Khamsin made a shocking discovery.
“Surprisingly, I found…images [of Brinton wearing my custom-made] outfits, which [were] in the lost bag,” Khamsin continued.
Khamsin explained to Fox News that she had flown to Washington, D.C., to attend an event where she was invited to display her fashions. The disappearance of the clothing prevented her from participating. Khamsin later reported her bag missing to the relevant authorities.
This marks the third incident of luggage theft Brinton is potentially associated with. He’s alleged to have swiped bags from luggage carousels at the Minnesota and Las Vegas airports and is facing at least five years in prison in connection with the charges. Brinton had traveled to these cities from Washington, D.C., in both instances.
The former nuclear-waste official was released without bail last week and ordered not to contact any of the victims after a court appearance in Minnesota. He had previously appeared in Las Vegas court in December, being released after posting a $15,000 bond. luggage-at-las-vegas-airport/” data-ylk=”slk:The judge in that case warned” class=”link “>The judge in that case warned Brinton to “stay out of trouble.”
