Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura contends he isn’t going after the widow of slain “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle by continuing his defamation lawsuit, but rather the publisher’s insurance company. “It’s not me against her,” Ventura said in a wide-ranging interview Monday night with The Associated Press. Ventura alleges that Kyle, considered to be the deadliest sniper in American history, defamed him in his best-selling book. In it, the former Navy SEAL describes a 2006 bar fight in which he claims he punched someone named “Scruff Face,” whom he later identified as Ventura. Ventura, also a former Navy SEAL and pro wrestler, says the fight never happened.
