“Sam Brinton is no longer a DOE employee. By law, the Department of Energy cannot comment further on personnel matters,” a Department of Energy spokesperson said on Monday.
According to a criminal complaint filed on Oct. 26 in Minnesota state court, Brinton while traveling from Washington DC allegedly stole a $2,325 Vera Bradley suitcase from a luggage carousel at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport on Sept. 16.
According to court filings, "DEFENDANT said when they opened the bag at the hotel, they realized it was not theirs. DEFENDANT got nervous people would think they stole the bag and did not know what to do. DEFENDANT stated they left the clothes from the bag inside the drawers in the hotel room."
Brinton was charged with felony theft of a movable property without consent, which could result in a $10,000 fine, a five-year sentence, or both.
Shortly after news of this theft, Brinton was charged yet again.
According to KLAS, a felony warrant was issued for Sam Brinton on the charge of grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000, for allegedly stealing luggage from Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas.
Last week, Brinton was called out by LGBTQ Nation for lying about “conversion therapy” torture.
The outlet accused Briton of fabricating his entire victim story: "These organizations, such as the Trevor Project and the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), ignored clear warning signs and incontrovertible evidence because Brinton provided these groups with a seemingly perfect ex-gay survivor story to expose horrific conversion therapy practices and ideology."
After investigating Brinton’s claims and finding no evidence to verify “a torture center where hideous abuses were presumably still occurring against children at least as young as 11,” the piece concluded, "Brinton should never have been given a platform by national LGBTQ+ organizations without having crucial details of their story confirmed. LGBTQ+ groups were sloppy, ethically negligent, and shockingly unprofessional, choosing expedience over prudence in turning Brinton into a national spokesperson. They were warned but didn't listen."
