This has happened so many times that it's almost not funny anymore.
(Okay it's still pretty funny.)
Sam Brinton, the embattled former senior Department of Energy (DOE) official, was arrested as a "fugitive from justice" by Maryland police late Wednesday.
According to county records reviewed by Fox News Digital, Brinton was taken into custody in Rockville. A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) Police, which is the lead law enforcement agency for both Washington, D.C., area airports, said the arrest was related to the theft of airport luggage, the third such criminal case involving Brinton.
I, for one, remain completely shocked. Who could have ever taken one glance at this fellow and predicted that he would be hauled up on any sort of weird, unsettling criminal charges related to women's clothes??
Not me! I predicted Mr. Brinton would be leading the Department of Energy to a brave, spangly, gender-fluid future.
I guess that's not going to happen now, though Joe Biden is up for re-election, so if he wants to juice the LGBT wing then he might go for the Hail Mary and just hire this guy again. Then he could court both the gender-crazy vote and the ex-con vote!
The Biden administration has kept this guy at arm's length since all of this went down, though:
The DOE on Dec. 12 announced that Brinton had departed the agency but wouldn't comment on the reason for the departure.
Yeah I thiiink I have an idea why he left.
