Brett Favre’s Sirius XM Show Put On Hold After Welfare Fraud Scandal

People won’t be hearing much from Brett Favre in the near future.

The move comes after Milwaukee radio station WKTI (which brands itself as ESPN Milwaukee) announced that it has suspended Favre’s weekly Green Bay Packers recap program on the station, NBC Sports reported.

The decision also comes just days after John Davis, a former director of Mississippi’s welfare agency, pleaded guilty to new federal charges in a conspiracy to misspend tens of millions of dollars that were intended to help needy families.

Favre has not been charged in the welfare misspending case, but earlier this month, texts came to light showing Favre working with Mississippi officials ― including then-Gov. Phil Bryant (R) ― to obtain federal welfare money for a new volleyball center at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Although Favre’s attorney, Bud Holmes, denied to Mississippi Today that his client knew the funding was coming from welfare money, texts show the quarterback asking if there’s any chance the media will find out the source of center’s funding.
