You Won’t Believe What Jesse Ventura Plans To Do With His $1.8 Million Settlement

The ruling in the defamation case against the estate of “American Sniper”, Chris Kyle, has rubbed many the wrong way. In an 8 to 2 decision, a jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million. Since the verdict was read, Ventura has been feeding off of the media frenzy, making statements and television appearances. Chris Kyle’s widow, Taya Kyle, has largely stayed out of the public eye.

Ventura sat down with the hosts of CBS’ “This Morning” on Wednesday to plead his case. It was evident that the anchors of the program are not his biggest fans. Ventura spent the segment ranting about how he is the victim in all of this and Taya Kyle had all of her attorney’s fees paid for by the insurance company. When asked what he planned to do with his settlement money, Ventura snidely replied, “Pay my lawyers.”

Well, there you have it. Ventura has put a slain Navy SEAL’s family through Hell all so that he can pay his attorneys. Makes your stomach churn, doesn’t it? Kyle left behind a wife and two children who should have been allowed to mourn his loss and try to move on without a lawsuit looming over their heads.

Piece of crap article.

Sorry about her loss but fact is Ventura was slandered, so why should he simply have to "live with it" because the author died?

Maybe the author shouldn't have lied.

Why is any of this Venturas fault?

My public opinion is Ventura did nothing wrong.

Ventura's side he started this lawsuit when the book came out defaming him. That Was before he died. When he died the suit automatically transferred to his estate. Not his wife and kids. Don't paint this SEAL as a complete innocent he made fraudulent claims in the book defaming someone else.

Jesse Ventura had every right to fight this and I am damn glad someone finally held someone else responsible for lies! The navy seal had no right to say what he said!

Ventura's decision to sue was entirely voluntary. His decision to persist after the author was murdered was also voluntary. What an admirable example he is!

If you call standing up for yourself and getting the truth out making a fool out of yourself, sure, I guess he did.

Maybe YOU lie about people on here everyday but I don't, nor do I know any that do. And even if there were true, unless names are published and what was said was FALSE, there is no harm done or any case for a lawsuit.

Calling someone out for who they really are might hurt someone's feelings but tough cookie. It's called the truth not a broken law.

Big difference in what you describe and what happened to Jesse.

THe JURY awarded him the money. If anyone has a problem with that, talk to the jury. Jesse or his lawyers didn't pick a number out of thin air and say this is the amount I want.

This so called american hero sniper had a history of embellishing any story he told. This time he got caught.

The publisher removed the offending text from the book and that's that.

Jesse Ventura defrauded the people of Minnesota to become Governor by lying about being a Navy SEAL.
VENTURA STOLE THE VALOR OF OTHERS to win the 1998 election by a very slim margin.
Ventura bribed a guy to leave the 1998 Reform Party so he wouldn't have competition in the Reform primary.
When complaints were filed against Ventura for election violations, Susan Gaertner, Ramsey County Attorney
at the time, fixed the investigation and its outcome, and got her boyfriend John Wodele a job with Ventura.
Gaertner is now with the Minneapolis law firm of Gray Plant Mooty.
This is well documented in the book "ALWAYS CHEAT". Call for a complimentary copy. 612-529-5253.
Overview of book -
Ventura's wife lied under oath in the Chris Kyle sniper trial when she said she never heard her husband
disparage military or known him to lie. Her lies influenced the jury and were not rebutted by sniper lawyers.
She heard him disparage and lie here -

So who says it didn't happen just as Kyle said? No one!! Ventura is the biggest b**ch out there and any of you defending this sad excuse for human flesh, well, you know what they say, birds of a feather flock together. Kyle defended your right to sit in your momma's basement and complain, get a life!!
