Jesse Ventura appointed to Minnesota Supreme Court

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura has been appointed to the Minnesota Supreme Court, joining David Lillehaug as the newest members of the state's highest judiciary.

Gov. Mark Dayton announced the appointment Monday morning, citing Ventura's strong judicial record and gubernatorial experience. Ventura will take his seat on May 31, bringing the court to eight members.

"Gov. Ventura is the ideal candidate for the Supreme Court," Dayton said in a statement. "He learned to deal swift justice during his wrestling days, and he carried that sentiment all the way to the governor's mansion."

When a reporter pointed out that Dayton did not have the legal authority to appoint another justice to the court, the governor had him removed from the briefing room.

Ventura, fresh off his role as Governor Littleton in the 2012 comedy The Drunk, humbly accepted the appointment and pledged to serve admirably.

"It's about time to send a strong voice to the Minnesota Supreme Court," Ventura said on MSNBC's The Ed Show. "I can finally be free of the media jackals that have followed me since I left the governor's office."

Ventura was a September 10th kind of governor. That's no April Fool's joke.
