Nosanchuk was a leader in the LGBT policy group during the Obama campaign.
Joe Giganti, a conservative talk-show host from Washington, D.C., said he thinks it’s the administration’s way of calming the demands of gay activists.
“At this point, they need more friends than enemies,” he said. “So they’ve got to do everything they can to reach out.”
He says the new post legitimizes the gay-activist movement.
“By putting a gentleman like Matt Nosanchuk in there,” he said, “they are insulting real civil-rights laws and the people that have struggled in the history of our country due to race, color and creed.”
