INDICE DE GALERIAS
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A newly unsealed deposition from former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura shows Ventura complaining about difficulty finding work after a Navy SEAL published a book he claims defamed him.
Ventura is suing the estate of Chris Kyle, a former sniper whose best-selling memoir includes a description of an alleged 2006 punch of Ventura by Kyle in a California bar. Ventura says the punch never happened.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported (http://bit.ly/198S7zB) that when asked in the November deposition how the book damaged him, Ventura said his job offers dried up.
Ventura also said he worried about being seen as a traitor to the military. Kyle, who was shot and killed in Texas in February, wrote that he punched a celebrity who was badmouthing Navy SEALs and President George W. Bush.
