Brett Favre is a legendary figure in his home state of Mississippi for his Hall of Fame NFL career. But now, Favre is making headlines in Mississippi (and across the country) for very different reasons. Favre, and others, are accused of diverting millions of dollars in welfare funds to go toward the construction of a volleyball stadium at the University of Southern Mississippi. The same school where Favre’s daughter played volleyball and where Favre himself is an alum. It is all part of a sprawling investigation into fraud and misuse of money that is meant to assist Mississippi’s neediest citizens, the state with the highest poverty rate in the nation. Anna Wolfe, a reporter from Mississippi Today who’s been investigating the case from the very beginning, joins us to unpack a story that is about much more than just a famous football player.

Ukraine is Russia's Ireland. The depth of Ukrainian culture & history is impossible to displace. I see much partisan warfare in Russia's future. Lots of poisoned cherries in that basket. The Chechens were bought. Ukrainians? I don't think so.

Condemning this racist murderer in Buffalo changes absolutely nothing. Ban assault weapons and 20+ round magazines. Period.

Police and politicians deserve NO civil protections whatsoever! They choose to be responsible, they must pay a high civil price when they facilitate crime or violate their oaths. PERIOD.

But yet between New York and Texas there are still mass shootings…not sure what you’re trying to propose is actually the answer to the problem.

"American officials are outraged after 'space debris' from a Russian laser endangered astronauts." ...was the sentence that made me realize that we're living in a James Bond novel.

Terrorists are operating under the nose of US intelligence in USA itself. US government can't manage at home so leave Afghanistan alone.

USA is repeating 90's history. We are heading towards a new ISIS and not sure what is the new brand😂. It is simple. Get out, Taliban takes over, radicals start new Form of ISIS, keep the whole area busy including Russia, India, Iran, and China. After all the mess, the cowboy comes back to sell weapons, kill more people, and drag USA into another round for 30 more years 🤔

The A in LGBTQIA isn't for Ally. It stands for Asexual: a person who doesn't experience sexual attraction or desire.
