Dozens of officials in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration have been subpoenaed, including a top aide, in an investigation into several sexual harassment claims.

On Friday the Wall Street Journal reported that the state attorney general’s office is requesting the officials hand over documents in the ongoing investigation.

Melissa DeRosa is the top aide subpoenaed. Her title is secretary to the governor and the WSJ reports that investigators have asked Cuomo’s accusers about their interactions with DeRosa as well.

A statement released by Cuomo administration lawyer Paul Fishman said there should be no shock about the investigations.

“No one should be surprised that the AG’s office is issuing requests for documents and interviewing witnesses, including many who work for the governor,” the statement said. “That happens in every investigation, and it’s wildly premature to speculate what it means. Good, thorough, and fair investigations take time.”

Despite calls to resign from both New York senators, dozens of New York officials, and the President of the United States, Cuomo has not budged.

Sam Brinton, the Biden administration’s deputy assistant for spent fuel and waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy has been charged with a very bizarre crime.

Allegedly Brinton purposely stole a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport’s baggage claim.

Brinton is one of the federal government’s first gender non-binary officials who uses they/them pronouns. Court filings state that surveillance video showed Brinton grabbing the luggage and removing the owners ID tag.

Brinton then used the Vera Bradley suitcase on at least two occasions; one while traveling to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and the second on Oct. 9, investigators say.

Initially, Brinton denied stealing the suitcase to police officers. They later claimed it was taken by mistake, although it was still  in their possession.
