Ventura, miffed by court, says he's off to Mexico

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Former Minn. Gov. Jesse Ventura is so upset by a judge's ruling on his airport security lawsuit that he says he'll apply for dual citizenship so he can spend more time in his beloved Mexico.

Ventura sued the federal government in January, alleging that airport scans and pat-downs amounted to unreasonable search and seizure. A district judge in St. Paul threw out his lawsuit Thursday, ruling it should have been filed in a Circuit Court of Appeals.

On Friday outside the federal courthouse in St. Paul, with a crew from his "Conspiracy Theory" cable TV show filming, Ventura said he hadn't decided whether to continue pressing his lawsuit.

But the former Navy SEAL said he had lost his patriotism, and would "never stand for the national anthem again."
