Brett Favre Knew Mississippi Funds Transfer Was Illegal

Mar 21, 2023

Brett Favre wrote in a text that the former head of Mississippi’s state welfare program deserved an overpriced Ford pickup.

“Surprise him with a vehicle. … We could get him a Raptor,” Favre wrote in a January 2019 text.

There’s no indication Favre paid close to six figures for that truck after John Davis helped to allegedly divert about $8 million to the Hall of Fame’s quarterback and his pet projects.

The Mississippi Department of Human Services — the same agency Davis led — detailed more allegations against Favre in an answer to his motion to dismiss. In the filing. Attorneys for the agency said Favre’s texts revealed he knew the scheme was “illegal.”
