Guns For The Left: Apple’s Global Security Chief and two Sheriff’s Indicted for Alleged Bribery

Apple’s head of global security was charged with bribery last week for allegedly promising to donate iPads to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office in exchange for concealed weapons permits, according to an indictment made public Monday.

According to the Washington Post:

The charges are part of a broader, two-year investigation into the sheriff’s office, according to a news release on the Santa Clara County district attorney’s website. The investigation explored an alleged scheme to trade concealed weapons permits in exchange for goods, such as iPads and expensive sports tickets.

Thomas Moyer, who has run Apple’s security department since 2013, according to his LinkedIn page, had applied for concealed weapons permits, according to the release. The sheriff’s office held up the application, the news release alleges, until Moyer agreed to get Apple to donate $70,000 worth of iPads.

Apple’s sprawling headquarters in Cupertino falls within Santa Clara County and is staffed with security. Concealed weapon permits, however, are rarely granted in the county.

The Santa Clara Undersheriff Rick Sung and Capt. James Jensen, who allegedly requested the bribes, were also indicted.

Jeff Rosen, the Santa Clara district attorney, said Sung and Jensen treated concealed carry permits “like commodities,” but he also faulted those who paid the bribes. “Bribe seekers should be reported to the District Attorney’s Office, not rewarded with compliance,” he said in a statement.

Apple and Moyer did not immediately respond to requests for comment.”

This is the full transcript of the indictment according to SCgov.com:
