Former Mississippi governor Phil Bryant is facing a subpoena related to Packers legend Brett Favre, according to CNN.
The NFL hall of famer is caught up in a civil suit over an alleged multimillion-dollar welfare fraud scandal.
Attorneys for the defendant, Austin Smith, say they want to see communications between the ex-governor and athlete.
The state is suing Smith for the return of more than $425,000.
It's also accusing Favre of pressuring a company in which he was invested to seek nonprofit money.
An attorney for Favre declined to comment.
