Conservative groups are expressing concern that David Hansell, an openly homosexual man and former AIDS activist, is currently serving as the acting head – the assistant secretary – of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

-- From "Homosexual Activist Serves as Acting Head of HHS Agency for Children and Families" by Jane McGrath, CNSNews.com 8/12/10
Hansell is the former director of legal services and deputy director for government and public affairs at the Gay Men’s Health Crisis, a homosexual activist group that has lobbied the federal government on HIV/AIDS.
Hansell actually holds the number two position in the ACF, as principal deputy assistant secretary, but has been carrying out the duties of the assistant secretary job until the Obama administration nominates a replacement for Assistant Secretary Carmen Nazario, who resigned from the position earlier this year.
The Senate would have to confirm the president’s nomination.
. . . Hansell has already used the power of the position to cut funding to states that do not permit homosexual couples to adopt children.
In a profile piece on him in The (Albany, N.Y.) Times Union, Hansell responded to a question about whether he felt “pressure to represent” the Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender (LGBT) community.
"I've been told that I'm the first openly gay man appointed commissioner in the state,” Hansell responded. “I think that it's a tribute to both Gov. (Elliot) Spitzer and Gov. (David) Paterson. I feel that I bring with me to this job a commitment to serve that community, as well as everyone in the state. And I think it’s a reflection of how far the LGBT community has come."
