Apple is bringing in a new person to represent the company's interests in the nation's capital. Cynthia Hogan has been hired to take charge of Apple's Washington, D.C. office.
Hogan previously worked as a lobbyist for the National Football League and was a former aide to U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. According to Politico:
Hogan joins Apple just after the company's highly public and controversial legal fight with the FBI over the unlocking of an iPhone that was used by a suspect in the recent mass shootings in San Bernardino, California. Apple is still involved in a legal case with the U.S Justice Department, which wants the company to help unlock an iPhone in a New York drug case.
