Brett Favre’s Biographer Burns His Favre Jersey, Tells People Not To Buy His Book Amid Welfare Scandal

Brett Favre has found himself in hot water and even his former biographer is turning on him.

On Tuesday, Mississippi Today released incriminating text messages that appear to show that Favre was involved in a scheme with former Mississippi governor Phil Bryant to use welfare funds to pay for a $5 million volleyball stadium for the University of Southern Mississippi where Favre’s daughter played volleyball.

The newly released texts, filed Monday by an attorney representing Nancy New’s nonprofit, show that Bryant, Favre, New, Davis and others worked together to channel at least $5 million of the state’s welfare funds to build a new volleyball stadium at University of Southern Mississippi, where Favre’s daughter played the sport. Favre received most of the credit for raising funds to construct the facility.

Writer Jeff Pearlman, who wrote Favre’s biography “Gunslinger” took to Twitter to tell people how much of a massive scumbag Favre is and how he regrets ever writing the book.

Pearlman even went on to burn his Favre jersey due to his disgust with the QB.
