Mississippi Welfare Agency Offers Theories on Brett Favre’s Missing Texts

Oct 28, 2023

The legal battle over Brett Favre’s text messages has led attorneys for the Mississippi Department of Human Services to ponder why the Hall of Famer can’t find texts that could shed light on his alleged role in the welfare scandal.

Favre was interviewed by the FBI in 2020, although he hasn’t been charged criminally by federal or local authorities as others have over their alleged involvement in the largest public corruption scandal in Mississippi history that saw the misappropriation of at least $77 million of federal welfare funds.

“First, he claims he does not have his 2017 text messages, but somehow this does not mean that those messages have been destroyed, lost, discarded, or otherwise disposed of,” MDHS lawyers wrote in a Thursday filing obtained by Front Office Sports.
