Former Green Bay Packer and Hall-of-Famer Brett Favre denies he took $1.1 million for speaking engagements that he never showed up for. An Auditor’s report from Favre’s home state of Mississippi released Monday that Favre Enterprises received the money from the Mississippi Community Education Center. Favre told ESPN Wisconsin’s “Wilde & Tauch” show that he was paid for his role in public service announcements and advertisements that ran on the radio a few years ago. Favre says he is paying the money back and he "never failed ever to show up for speaking engagements". He said on the radio show that he was unaware that the money came from welfare funds.
