Brett Favre has shown Mississippi as the state that won’t accept federal money to provide health insurance for the poor (even as it bans abortion) but has plenty of money for enhanced volleyball facilities. But he’s willing to engage in some self-dealing from his “charity” too:
Before Brett Favre allegedly siphoned $5 million in Mississippi welfare funds to build a new volleyball facility at Southern Miss—his alma mater and where his daughter played the sport—his nonprofit for “disadvantaged children” helped bankroll a new volleyball facility at her top-performing high school, The Daily Beast has learned.
His charity also shelled out more than $130,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi’s athletic club between 2018 and 2020, records show, when he was working to build a volleyball facility there—apparently with state welfare funds.
Look, these schools would be disadvantaged if they had to compete with inferior facilities, so I don’t see the problem!
