Former actor, professional wrestler and governor of Minnesota,
Jesse Ventura won his defamation suit in U.S. District Court in St. Paul. I honestly can't figure out if I was more shocked on November 3, 1998 when Ventura was elected governor, or today when he was awarded $1.845 million from the estate of Chris Kyle.
Ventura decided to add Kyle's widow to the suit as a representative of the estate after Kyle was killed.
In a must read story by Randy Furst and James Walsh for the Star Tribune, Ventura said “I am overjoyed that my reputation was restored which is what this whole law suit is all about." Yep, his reputation has been restored.
A few weeks ago, I wrote "the world can't be shocked anymore by Jesse Ventura." I was wrong, as he shocked the world once again and hopefully, for the last time.
