Former Jets host Jennifer Sterger is claiming that she lost her job ten years ago because she wouldn’t sleep with former NFL QB Brett Favre as text messages surface amid the welfare scandal the Hall of Famer is embroiled in.
Favre is being accused of funneling $5 million into a new complex at his alma mater Southern Miss with the help of former Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant and Nancy New, a nonprofit founder. His daughter played volleyball there in 2018.
Mississippi Today reporter Anna Wolfe has made public alleged text messages that were shared with her by New’s attorney. New pleaded guilty to federal wire fraud connected to a widespread $77 million misuse of funds from the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
The purported texts show that Bryant advised Favre on how to write a funding proposal so it would be accepted by the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

According to the Daily Mail, one of the messages shows that Bryant asked New for help concerning Favre and his “project.”
Favre is denying the allegations of wrongdoing.
“I am doing all that I can to support this investigation to make things right for the people of Mississippi and I have shared all that I know, which is that I was paid for three years of commercials that I did, and I paid taxes on the money, as I should,” Favre said in 2021 on Twitter.
“Of course the money was returned because I would never knowingly take funds meant to help our neighbors in need, but for Shad White to continue to push out this lie that the money was for no-show events is something I cannot stay silent about,” he added.

Enter Sterger, who saw an opening to attack Favre by revealing more alleged details of her relationship with him including an assertion that she lost her job ten years ago with the Jets because she refused to sleep with him.
The comedian tweeted, “Oh.. NOWWWWW he gets in trouble for inappropriate texts.”
In 2008, Sterger claimed that she received inappropriate text messages and images from Favre. An investigation was opened by the NFL into the incident in 2010. Favre was never found guilty of sexual harassment and violating the league’s personal conduct policy, but they did fine him $50,000 for failing to cooperate with the investigation.
Sterger is now venting once again over it via Twitter.
Members of the media.
Former colleagues of mine.
Those with “journalist/reporter” in their bio:
If you aren’t pushing your network to cover this story, you’re part of the problem. Don’t call yourself a news source. Tell everyone what you are: a propaganda machine for the nfl.

“To think my legacy and everything anyone knows of me.. can be summed down to the title of ‘The Brett Favre Girl,’ is not only disgusting. But disheartening,” she wrote.
“To think of all the jobs that people have gate-kept from me, that I was a shoo-in for, simply because having access to HIM, his interviews, his ‘legacy’ and stardom was more important than any kind of reparations I was due,” Sterger continued.
“The media played a sick and twisted role in painting me as a bad guy, simply because I ‘looked a certain way.’ And, none of them has printed a retraction, though some like NFL.com have deleted articles but not the search engine sheets that show they are still somewhere in the system,” she added.
“Or the big conglomerate PR companies like Sunshine Sachs that launched a nasty attack on me and my character on behalf of the Jets… Twenty-eight-year-old me didn’t stand a chance,” the comedian complained.
“Humans are complicated, flawed beings. And bad people do bad things. But the truth is, I forgave Brett Favre a long time ago for what he did to me: cost me my job simply because I wouldn’t sleep with him. I forgave the NFL. I forgave the media. But, it was the hardest thing I ever did.. forgiving people that never deserved it, let alone even asked for it,” an obviously bitter Sterger stated, all evidence to the contrary.
