There was a time when Favre was one of the most respected athletes in the U.S. But that’s no longer the case after multiple high-profile scandals that tarnished his reputation. The former Packers quarterback lost credibility after he allegedly sent unsolicited nudes to former Jets hostess Jenn Sterger. In the end, the NFL fined him because he didn’t cooperate with their investigation.
But an even bigger scandal emerged in 2023 after he allegedly ripped off the state of Mississippi. He allegedly received welfare money for multiple projects in one of the worst corruption cases in modern U.S. history. We expect athletes to live clean-cut public lives but that’s simply not Favre’s existence (via CBS Sports).
