"Jesse Ventura Pledges To Campaign Against Minnesota Marriage Amendment"

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura (I) has expressed strong opposition to Minnesota’s marriage inequality amendment and plans to campaign against it. Ventura, who is promoting his new book DemoCrips and ReBloodlicans: No More Gangs In Government, said, “I certainly hope that people don’t amend our constitution to stop gay marriage because, number one, the constitution is there to protect people — not oppress them.” The former governor says the gay rights cause is personal for him because of a gay friend he had in professional wrestling who was barred from visiting his partner in the hospital.
