As sports fans on social media continue to comment on Brett Favre’s alleged role in the Mississippi welfare scandal, Favre’s radio show “The SiriusXM Blitz With Brett Favre and Bruce Murray” on SiriusXM Radio has been officially put on hiatus.

The radio show would air every Tuesday and its final episode was taped on September 13. Mississippi state prosecutors have sued to recover more than $20 million in allegedly misdirected social funds from the former quarterback, Governor Bryant and others. According to Mississippi Today, a series of text messages have surfaced that could potentially contradict Favre’s claim that he had nothing to do with a federal welfare scandal that has been called “the biggest case of corruption ever.” over the past two decades”, by the State Auditor. .

According to new court documents, Favre was allegedly seeking millions of dollars to fund a new volleyball stadium in Southern Miss. His daughter was playing for the team at the time. Court documents say Governor Bryant warned Favre by texting him “any improper use could result in a violation of federal law” and that auditors are currently reviewing the use of the funds. Favre reportedly refused to accept a negative response and “continued to press” for the state to lend funds for various projects, according to court documents.

“Obviously we need your help and time is working against us. And we think your name is the perfect choice for this installation and we don’t take No for an answer! You are a Southern Miss Alumni, and people need to know that you are also a supporter of the University,” Favre reportedly wrote.

“We’re going to get there,” Bryant replied. “It was a great meeting. But we have to obey the law. I’m at[o] old for federal prison.

Rodney Bennett, the former president of Southern Miss, reportedly told Bryant that he warned Favre “not to do what he does to ask state agencies and the legislature for funds.”

The $70 million the state received from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program was originally intended to help needy families. The state demanded that Favre and others return the money, plus interest, through the Mississippi State Auditor. Among those also accused of being paid by federal welfare funds for activities and projects that were not legally eligible for those funds are former WWE superstar Ted DiBiase Jr., the former Oklahoma running back Marcus Dupree and fitness trainer Paul LaCoste.

DiBiase was reportedly paid $3.9 million to also serve as a motivational speaker. NBC News reports that LaCoste and Dupree were paid a combined $670,000. The state auditor called Mississippi’s waste of federal welfare funds “the greatest case of public corruption in the past two decades.” Favre would have reimbursed the fees, but still owes the $228,000 interest fee that the auditor also demanded.

Favre claims he did not know where the money he received came from; however, recently filed evidence shows that Favre allegedly asked if the media would be able to find out where the funds he was to receive came from. The exchange between Favre and nonprofit group founder Nancy New vaguely indicates that Favre knew where the funds were coming from and feared the public would find out. New pleaded guilty to 13 scandal-related charges earlier this year.
