Cynthia C. Hogan (born Cincinnati, Ohio about 1958) is the Vice President for Public Policy and Government Affairs at Apple. Previously Hogan served as Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Government Affairs for the National Football League, and prior to that as the Counsel to the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, under President Barack Obama. Hogan previously worked as Chief Counsel to Vice President Biden during his time in the United States Senate and served as Staff Director of the Senate Judiciary Committee.[2]

In 1995, she assisted with the drafting of anti-terrorism legislation.[3]

She has experience with judicial nominations. During the confirmation process for Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, she was (metaphorically) Judge Sotomayor's sherpa.

She holds a B.A. in art history from Oberlin College (1979), and a J.D. from the University of Virginia Law School (1984). She was Notes Editor of the Virginia Law Review, then a clerk for U.S. District Court judge Edward Norman Cahn in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. She was an associate at Williams & Connolly, before going to work for Biden (1991–1996). She advised Biden unofficially while she stayed home raising her children.[4]

She and her husband both contributed to Democratic National Committee (1992). She gave money to Ralph Neas (1997) in his unsuccessful attempt to unseat Connie Morella in Maryland's 8th congressional district.[5][6][7][8] Her husband has consistently donated to his employer's (the Arent Fox law firm) political action committee;[9] the firm appears to contribute to the party of the incumbent President of the United States.[10]

Morella for voting for an open-ended impeachment inquiry. Mr. Neas has an uphill battle and clearly is hoping that the move will enliven his campaign. 'I favor censuring the President but then getting on with the business of Government,' Mr. Neas says in the advertisement. 'The facts don't justify an impeachment.'
