Late last month, ESPN exposed tax records that showed Brett Favre’s charity, Favre 4 Hope, donated more than $130,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi Athletic Foundation from 2018 to 2020.
During this same period, Favre was trying to raise money for a new volleyball stadium at the university, where he played football and his daughter was on the volleyball team. As you know, those funds are under scrutiny in the largest public fraud case in Mississippi state history.
Favre, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is involved in an investigation into Mississippi’s welfare spending. He received $1.1 million in speaking fees for appearances he allegedly never made.
Text messages show Favre was also involved in diverting at least $5 million in welfare funds to the volleyball stadium.
Because of this, many have called for him to be removed from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
That question was presented on Twitter.
The question asked, “Should Brett Favre be booted from the Football Hall of Fame?”
Sharpe made it real clear when he responded, “ABSOLUTELY NOT.”
Favre starred for the Packers from 1992-2007, earning three straight MVP awards and winning Super Bowl XXXI.
He joined the New York Jets in 2008 and finished his career with the Minnesota Vikings in 2009 and 2010. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.
