Sam Brinton, the disgraced Department of Energy official fired for serial theft of luggage and not for being non-binary, has found new employment at Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport. “At Dulles, diversity is our strength,” said the airport’s Operations Director, Mike Stewart.

(The attire prohibitions still apply to cis-gendered female employees.)
