Audit finds Mississippi misspent millions in federal anti-poverty funds
(Reuters) - Nearly $100 million in federal anti-poverty funds for Mississippi were misspent to enrich local officials, along with a family of professional wrestlers and a firm owned by Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, the state auditor has alleged. You see a pretty grotesque example of misspending of taxpayer dollars, White told reporters at a news conference, when the audit was released on Monday. White said it was possible people and entities contracted and paid with the federal funds may not have known they were legally earmarked for anti-poverty work. The audit shows that two non-profits - the Mississippi Community Education Center and the Family Resource Center of North Mississippi - were the recipients of most of the $94 million it alleges was misspent. Money was also spent on religious concerts and for donations to organizations not tied to anti-poverty work, including the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the American Heart Association and various beauty pageants.feeds.reuters.com
