Legendary NFL quarterback Brett Favre is in unfortunate headlines.
According to a report, Favre and the state of Mississippi
are being questioned by the FBI for a welfare scam.
Corruption among those in power in Mississippi is astonishing,
and it has been so for a long time. The poorest state in the country used
welfare money to pay Brett Favre for the speeches he made," Doug Jones reports.
Favre has paid the fees, although the auditor also did not ask
for $228,000 in interest. But the revelation by the auditor
that $70 million in TANF welfare funds was a multi-millionaire athlete,
a professional wrestler sparked a parallel state and federal criminal
investigation involving charges and guilty pleas involving some prominent players.
