In courtroom proceedings John Wallace—who sometimes looked shaken and nervous—testified to the following:
- Brad Miller had a State Senate campaign account that was still active after years of being in the House of Representatives.
- Wallace admitted to telling investigators that he believed Jamie Hahn (who ran Miller’s campaign through Sky Blue) “didn’t have a grip on [Miller’s] finances—of the money coming and going, in and out of the campaign.”
- Wallace acknowledged that Rep. Miller selected donors who had given to his congressional campaign—refunded their donations with the understanding those refunds would then be donated to his State Senate committee account. Why? Because Miller’s senate account owed him money and that way — he could collect those funds.
- Wallace also acknowledged—through exhibits—that some donors were refunded much more than they actually donated—causing the FEC to send letters to the congressional campaign committee in Oct of 2012.
