JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi Social Services Department sued retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre and three former professional wrestlers along with several other people and companies on Monday to try to recoup millions of dollars spent on social assistance to help some of the poorest people in the United States -in

The lawsuit alleges that defendants “spent” more than $ 20 million in anti-poverty money on temporary assistance for needy families.

The lawsuit was filed less than two weeks after a mother and son who ran a nonprofit group and an education company in Mississippi pleaded guilty to state criminal charges related to abuse. Nancy New, 69, and Zachary New, 39, have agreed to testify against others in what State Auditor Shad White called the largest public case of corruption in the Mississippi in two decades.
