Mississippi says it awaits $600K repayment from Brett Favre

Associated Press/Report for America

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Authorities say retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre has yet to repay $600,000 received from the state of Mississippi for multiple speaking events where he never showed up.

The former athlete had previously said he would pay the state after an audit revealed $1.1 million had been paid to his company, Favre Enterprises. Auditors said that was part of $94 million in welfare spending “questioned” in a 2020 audit.

That meant auditors saw clear misspending or could not verify money was lawfully spent.

Favre made an initial payment of $500,000 a year ago. He has not been accused of a crime.
