The 52-year-old Super Bowl champion asked for assistance despite being informed by former Gov. Phil Bryant that misusing welfare funding by the state could be illegal, the report noted.

Favre has not been charged relating to the welfare scandal in the state and has said he was not aware of the origins of the funds.

However, he is listed as a defendant in Mississippi’s civil lawsuit over misspent welfare funding, according to a report.

At least $77 million in state welfare funds has been misspent or stolen over the course of the scandal, according to the report.
