For all the woes the Green Bay Packers are facing on the field this season, off the field is even worse when mentioning one of the franchise’s all-time greats.

Farve is in the middle of a welfare scandal in his home state of Mississippi, using $1-5 million in welfare funds to secure for a volleyball center at his alma mater, Southern Miss, where his daughter played.

Text messages were released showing his knowledge and intent to use these funds and keep the public from knowing.

Since the texts were released, Farve has denied his knowledge of any wrong doings. Claiming to not know where the funds were supposed to have come from and what they were originally designated for.

“I have been unjustly smeared in the media. I have done nothing wrong, and it is past time to set the record straight. No one ever told me, and I did not know, that funds designated for welfare recipients were going to the University or me.

I tried to help my alma mater, a public Mississippi state university, raise funds for a wellness center. My goal was and always will be to improve the athletic facilities at my university.”

Since then, another development in the incident has emerged. With two Florida-based companies that prescribe concussion drugs, Prevacus and PresolMD, now caught in the middle. Both company’s are backed by the Green Bay Packers great.

The companies founder, Jake VanLandingham, is alleged to have received over $2.1 million in welfare funds.

While he has only been accused, no arrests have happened for Farve.

At the moment, the state of Mississippi is looking to get back millions of dollars in misappropriated funds. Totaling somewhere around an alleged $94 million having been misused, first discovered in 2020.

Mississippi is the poorest state in the country with an 18.8% poverty rate, a 4.1% unemployment rate and an average median household income of just under $45,000.

Just adding to the daunting alleged audacities attached by Brett Favre and others associated with this multi-million dollar odium.
