Hearing the name of Brett Favre already brings about a ton of controversy, and now he plans on hooking up with another person who is just as controversial.
Hall-of-Fame quarterback Brett Favre now has a new job in sports media.
According to Ryan Glasspiegel of the New York Post, Favre will be joining Jason Whitlock’s show “Fearless” on The Blaze. He will also be joined by Tampa Bay Bucs Hall of fame player Warren Sapp.
Favre will be joining the show every Wednesday while Sapp will join the show each Thursday.
In the meantime, Favre is dealing with more accusations this week as he remains a defendant in a civil lawsuit seeking to recover misused Mississippi welfare funds. He’s now accused of not providing text messages pertinent to the case.
Mississippi Department of Human Services lawyers claimed Favre has “failed to answer any of this discovery” by not turning over texts.
“Despite being identified as the sender or recipient on the face of these text messages, Favre objected and claimed he could not verify many of these text messages’ authenticity,” MDHS lawyers wrote in the filing.
Favre allegedly misappropriated $5 million of the state’s federal welfare budget to build a volleyball court at his daughter’s college, which is somewhere he attended as well.
Favre also allegedly received $1.1 million of TANF funds for public speeches he never made.
The Mississippi Supreme Court recently denied Favre’s appeal to get dropped from the civil lawsuit.
