The man accused of stabbing political strategist Jamie Kirk Hahn is being investigated for questionable campaign finance reports he made while working for U.S. Rep. Brad Miller in 2012, the former Raleigh congressman said Wednesday.

Miller said he hired Hahn’s firm, Sky Blue Strategies, in roughly 2010 for fund-raising help in his 2012 re-election campaign, which he later abandoned. Jonathan Broyhill, 31, worked for her and would have been the principal worker with access to fund-raising software, Miller said.

“Some of the things that Jon said about the campaign finances were inconsistent with other information,” Miller said Wednesday. “It’s probably the case that Jamie was asking questions on behalf of the campaign about campaign finances. I think it’s bound to be part of the investigation of Jon’s motive.”

Miller stressed that he does not know of any law enforcement inquiry into election money and said any investigation is limited to his campaign thus far.

“Obviously, we’ll have someone look at bank records and (Federal Elections Commission) reports and see if people shown on the reports were paid,” Miller said.

A memorial service has been set for Saturday for Hahn, 29, who died early Wednesday from injuries suffered Monday in a stabbing attack at her North Raleigh home.
