Former teammate calls out Brett Favre’s involvement in alleged welfare fraud

Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre has been mired in a social funds controversy in his home state of Mississippi for months. Whether the situation has received enough attention elsewhere is a matter of fair debate; We've covered it in detail here. And we will continue to do so.
Here's an interesting development. A former teammate of Favre clearly shot at Favre's behavior.
"Since I retired, I've been fortunate not to have stolen millions of dollars from the poorest people in my state," Sage Rosenfels said on Twitter Thursday.

Rosenfels played for the Vikings in 2009, Favre's first year in Minnesota. To his credit, Rosenfels hasn't felt compelled to look the other way on a story that's stank to high heaven since we first saw reports that Favre spent $1.1 million on alleged no-show work from the state social program received.
Favre denied wrongdoing, but then paid the money back. He has since been sued for unpaid interest on monies he received and returned.
More recently, the situation has focused on Favre's role in scooping $5 million in fruit from the federally funded welfare tree to build a volleyball stadium at his alma mater, the University of Southern Mississippi. Devastating text messages were released last week, including one asking Favre if the media will find out about the payments.
We have learned. Everybody has. But we cannot control how others have treated the story. Perhaps they consider Favre, who hasn't played in more than a decade, irrelevant. Maybe if he does a perp walk at some point, they'll feel different.
And if he broke the law, he should definitely be prosecuted. And locked up. It's one thing to rob the rich to give to the poor. Favre was involved in a scam where the poor were stolen to give to the rich. stupid bitch
