Brett Favre has done a lot of interviews lately.
He has a lot of opinions especially about black athletes, but when is someone going to ask him about this?
It needs to be discussed and mainstream media but for the most part are ignoring it.
Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Brett Favre has not repaid $600,000 he received in Mississippi welfare money after promising one year ago that he would.
A state audit released last May revealed that Mississippi Community Education Center — a nonprofit at the center of what officials call the largest public embezzlement scheme in state history — paid Favre $1.1 million in welfare money to promote a federally-funded anti-poverty initiative called Families First for Mississippi.
Favre, the 51-year-old Kiln native and south Mississippi resident, has not returned several calls or messages to Mississippi Today, but told his Twitter followers last year that he didn’t know the money he received was intended to help poor families.
Favre just wasn’t stealing for himself, but also for some of his companies.
If this was anybody else they might be in jail.
Favre met with the former Mississippi Department of Human Services director John Davis and the nonprofit founder Nancy New, according to emails and interviews, to discuss financially supporting a concussion research firm called Prevacus — the company that eventually received $2.15 million in allegedly stolen welfare funds.
Favre claimed that his agent Bus Cook set up the deal, but Cook said he had nothing to do with it.
These are Trump-style business dealings.
