Ex-SEAL: Ventura got popped after popping off

Posted on: Aug31 2012 | Leave A Comment

(Minneapolis Star-Tribune) If former Gov. Jesse Ventura didn’t like what Navy SEAL Chris Kyle wrote about him in his memoir, “American Sniper,” he’s going to positively hate what five fellow SEALs — and the mothers of two of their fallen comrades — have to say about him.

Kyle’s friends and associates have rallied to his defense in a defamation lawsuit Ventura filed in Hennepin County in January. Ventura, whose real name is James Janos, sued over Kyle’s portrayal of a bar fight he claims they had six years ago in Coronado, Calif.

Under the heading, “Punching Out Scruff Face,” Kyle describes a confrontation with a “celebrity” who served in the military during the Vietnam War. He said Scruff Face winters in Baja California, opposed the war in Iraq and described the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as a “conspiracy.”

Though he didn’t name Ventura in the book, Kyle has acknowledged that Scruff Face is Jesse “The Body” Ventura.
