You may also know that Kyle said in his book that he had punched notorious loudmouth Jesse Ventura IN his notoriously loud mouth in a bar in Coronado, CA [home of the Navy SEALs] in 2006. Ventura says it never happened and had a law suit going before Kyles death.
Now, to PROVE that he's a stand up guy, and that their is honor among SEALS and veterans, Jesse Ventura wants to go ahead with the law suit and go after Kyle's widow. What a Sombrero Coulo this guy is!
Ex-Navy SEAL Jesse Ventura filed a defamation lawsuit in 2012 against "American Sniper" Chris Kyle over an alleged bar fight in Coronado seven years ago. Today Ventura's attorneys asked a federal judge to make Kyle's widow Taya Kyle the new defendant in the case.
Ventura claims Chris Kyle defamed him in his memoir American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.
According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
In a section of his book called “Punching Out Scruff Face,” Kyle describes a confrontation with a “celebrity” at a 2006 wake for a Navy SEAL. He claimed “Scruff Face” made disparaging remarks about the war, the United States and President George W. Bush, provoking Kyle to punch him in the face.Kyle later identified "Scruff Face" as Ventura.
As Home Post previously reported, Kyle, 38, was shot to death at a Texas shooting range last February.
The Associated Press reports Ventura's attorney, David Bradley Olsen, told a federal judge today in Minneapolis that Taya Kyle should take her dead husband's place as defendant:
[B]ecause Ventura has a fundamental right to protect and repair his reputation. Olsen also argued Kyle’s estate will continue to profit from book sales and a recent movie deal..
Repair of his reputation?!! I'll tell you what will gain him some 'repair', how about NOT suing a widow over shit her dead husband said! I was never a Jesse fan, I liked him best right after that friggin' Predator skinned his stupid ass and hung him by his heals to bleed out like a deer.
But going forward with this suit will push me permanently to the, "I think Jesse Ventura is a Dick Headed, simple minded, money stealing DB"!
