Mississippi official pleads guilty in welfare scandal that involves Brett Favre

Court records say former NFL player pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud and theft. Court records show he directed $3.2 million in federal funds to two nonprofit organizations. He is the only figure higher in the scandal, though he has denied wrongdoing. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges, which carry a maximum of 15 years, court records show. The scandal has drawn outrage, in part because Mississippi is one of the poorest states in the country with millions of people eligible to receive federal funds.
