Mississippi Auditor Demands Brett Favre Repay $828,000 or Face Lawsuit

Mississippi state Auditor Shad White has issued a statement demanding that former NFL star Brett Favre pay the state $828,000 in welfare funds within 30 days or face a civil lawsuit.

The auditor’s office sent out letters demanding repayment from Favre and 14 other individuals or groups for a total of $77 million in misspent welfare dollars, although there are no criminal allegations involved, Mississippi Today reported.

Favre, a Mississippi native, received $1.1 million in funds from two non-profits whose founder has since been indicted on state and federal charges for their alleged role in the largest embezzlement scheme in state history, according to Mississippi Free Press.
