Brett Favre disputing auditor’s report

Pro Football Hall of Famer Brett Favre was known to escape the pocket back in his playing days, but when it comes to his ties to the biggest welfare scandal in state history and his reputation, Favre isn’t running from anything.

In fact, the Southern Miss legend and Hancock High School alum is actually playing defense disputing Mississippi Auditor Shad White’s report from earlier this week.

The report made claim to Favre receiving $1.1 million in no-show money from the Mississippi Department of Human Services to which Favre says is absolutely 100 percent not true.

Favre insists he was paid for advertisements that ran for three years and that the alleged speaking engagements were never part of any deal.

In a personal Facebook post made earlier this week, Favre says he’s spent his entire career helping children through ‘Favre 4 Hope,’ donating nearly $10 million to underprivileged kids in Mississippi and Wisconsin.

Here’s what he has to say about that: “It has brought a ton of joy to my life and I would certainly never do anything to take away from the children I have fought to help. I love Mississippi and I would never knowingly do anything to take away from those that need it most.”

Favre played 16 of his 20 NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers.
