NEW: The Mississippi State Auditor is demanding that Brett Favre return $828,000 he received in "illegally spent welfare funds" that should have gone to needy families.

Good morning to everyone but Brett Favre, who took $828,000 from a welfare fund that was supposed to go to needy families. A Trumper through and through.
Others who received letters from the auditor today include former WWE wrestler Ted Dibiase, Jr., known as “The Million Dollar Man,” who White said owes more than $4.6 million and his son, WWE wrestler Brett Dibiase, who White said owes $225,950.https://t.co/M2UIZCbOli

BREAKING: Multi-millionaire Brett Favre has been ordered to return $828,000 he stole as part of a scam to take money meant for needy families.
No word yet on whether he also has to return the $12 million he stole from the New York Jets, which was also meant for the needy.
And let's not forget Bryant's and Favre's involvement with a Florida concussion drug company that got $2M of welfare money. A classic from @lramseth
and me: https://t.co/lEKeT5YNS4
Am I reading correctly that they gave retired wrestlers and Brett Favre TANF money?
In Brett's case as "speaking fees" for never speaking?
He needs to be charged in this, too.
