Brett Favre repays Miss. $600K for no-show speaking events
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) – NFL giant Brett Favre has paid a big chunk of his debt to Mississippi, the auditor says.
State Auditor Shad White says his office has “recovered $600,000 from representatives of Brett Favre this week.”
The $600,000 covers money Favre received from Mississippi for multiple speaking events where he never showed up.
The discrepancy popped up from a Department of Human Services audit over misspent TANF funds, the largest embezzlement scheme in state history.
The lump-sum comes weeks after the auditor’s office demanded all businesses to pay up within 30 days.
Including interest, Favre Enterprises actually owes a total of $828,000, but the auditor’s office didn’t get the total amount and has yet to say why.
