Ventura Speaks Out Against Both Political Parties, Gay Marriage Ammendment

Friday, September 14th, 2012 at 11:37 am

Former MN Jesse Ventura has recently spoken out against both political parties, and the MN constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage in the state.

The former Independence Party governor and longtime gay rights supporter appears in a video posted online Friday by Minnesotans United for All Families, the main group working to defeat the proposed constitutional amendment. Voters will decide in November whether to add the ban to the state’s constitution.

Ventura says, “Love is by far bigger than government can ever be.”

In the video, he and his wife, Terry, talk about their 37-year marriage and urge Minnesotans to show their independence by rejecting the gay marriage ban.

As governor, Ventura pushed for domestic partner benefits for state employees.

    One thing I liked about Jesse Ventura, is once he stopped being governor, he kept his mouth shut about Minnesota politics. Now he’s on his way to being as annoying as Arne Carlson.
