Jesse Ventura Sours On US, Wants Mexican Citizenship

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura vowed Friday never to stand for the National Anthem or fly commercial again because his airport security lawsuit was dismissed. The outspoken ex-pro wrestler fumed outside a federal courthouse in St. Paul that he would seek Mexican citizenship or run for president of what he called the “Fascist Stats of America.” Ventura, whose titanium hip sets off metal detectors at airports, said in his lawsuit that the TSA’s body pat-downs are unconstitutional. In throwing out Ventura’s lawsuit, a district judge said the case should be filed in a Circuit Court of Appeals. Ventura said he wanted a trial by jury. "They know that if I go to court and I'm given a jury I will win," Ventura said.
