Fans Want Brett Favre Removed From The Hall Of Fame As Welfare Scandal Gets Worse By The Day

The Brett Favre welfare scandal is getting worse, and fans are beginning to call for his removal from the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.

The former Packers great was paid $1.1 million in federal welfare funds in 2017 and 2018 for motivational speeches he reportedly never gave. Two weeks ago, text messages revealed Mississippi’s former Gov. Phil Bryant helped take $5 million of the state’s welfare funds into a volleyball stadium for Favre’s alma mater, the University of Southern Mississippi.

A new report revealed Favre took funds from his own charity meant to help disadvantaged children and cancer patients and donated it to the University of Southern Mississippi’s Athletic department.

Fans are now calling for Favre’s removal from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
