There's at least $94 million worth of questionable spending being investigated in the greatest state in the union, and Brett Favre's name has been linked.
Apparently, someone with the Mississippi Department of Human Services made sure that Favre received $1.1 million for two speaking engagements. The only problem is that Favre didn't speak. He didn't even show up to the events in question.
This is the first I've ever heard of any improprieties out of Mississippi, as the state's reputation is usually pristine.
This news hasn't really caught on nationally yet, I guess because it doesn't involve Favre's penis yet. And Favre also hasn't been charged with any wrongdoing whatsoever. It's just alleged that he received some money from a department that is under intense investigation for shady spending practices.
Five people were charged a few months ago, including the director of Mississippi DHS and Brett DiBiase, youngest son of The Million Dollar Man.
Does everybody have a price?
The audit says Favre was paid twice, once for $500K and again for $600K. And again, he's been charged with nothing. But the spending has been marked as questionable.
There are other interesting turns in the investigation, as apparently the Department of Welfare was giving money out for cars, giving money to family and apparently handing Hall of Fame quarterbacks over $1 million in free money.
But whatever. No big deal. It's not like we're the poorest state in the union or any-fucking-thing. Just do whatever you want with a bunch of money, dipshits.
I've never had any dealings with the Mississippi Department of Welfare outside of being made to walk to the end of the driveway by my dad each Friday to "Get his goddamn mailbox money so we can get some weed."
Memories. We all have them.
