Mississippi is one of the poorest states of the United States of America. We have Republicans running the state who literally have the slave master mentality. They thieve money from the least of these and be sure to enrich themselves.
Former NFL Player Brett Favre is a prime example of this.
Man stole money that was supposed to go for WELFARE – to the poorest of the poor.
First, there was the scandal of him being paid $1,000,000 from that money for speeches that he never did.
Now, we find out that he stole $5 million to build some sort of sport stadium for his daughter.
A phucking sports stadium, while the poor received nothing.
In Mississippi, the $6 million that Favre thieved from those who actually deserved it, could have gone a long way to help people.
How can this NOT be illegal?
How can this NOT be STEALING OF FUNDS?
There needs to be a FEDERAL investigation into what happened with those funds.
This has to be THIEVERY.
There is NO WAY that you can say that it was LEGAL to take WELFARE FUNDS TO BUILD A PHUCKING SPORTS STADIUM.
NOTHING BUT THIEVERY!
THIS is why who you elect on the STATE LEVEL MATTERS!
We have the current Governor who sent back COVID funds, calling it ‘ left-wing’ policies, all the while he let the Capitol City-Jackson – go without water. The institutional and environmental racism that goes into what happened with Jackson. The State had MILLIONS, if not BILLIONS in infrastructure, but, somehow, those funds never got to Jackson, which has been begging for them, for DECADES. It was INSTITUTIONAL NEGLECT.
It was THIS Governor, who also shut down the investigator who was looking into the misuse of those welfare funds.
Don’t tell me that it doesn’t matter who you elect on the State level. It absolutely does.
In addition to the $6 million that Favre got his hands on of that welfare money, there was also the revelation of the $77 million that was misused by others. People put in charge of this money, and this is how they stole it.
When Republicans talk about ‘block granting’ monies to the States, this is exhibit A, B, and C, as to why that’s a bad idea. You never give that kind of money who are always talking out the sides of their mouths about how ‘ bad’ government is. And, it’s always those who come from the ‘leech’ states – states that receive far more back from the Federal Government than they send to it.
