He told CBS News he can’t find work, has lost his Screen Actors Guild health insurance and recently inked a deal with the only agency that will deal with him — Russian state-funded television network RT.
“I can’t get a job in the U.S. No one will touch me,” Ventura told CBS News. “My United States union throws me in the dirt and who comes to the rescue? Russia.”
Ventura, who served with the Navy’s Underwater Demolition Teams based in the Philippines in the 1970s, before remaining UDTs were redesignated as SEAL Delivery Vehicle Teams in the 1980s, has also lamented that he is no longer welcome at gatherings of SEAL and UDT veterans.
“I can’t go to UDT-SEAL reunions anymore because that was the place I always felt safe, and who will be next to throw me under the bus?” Ventura said in 2014, after a jury found in his favor. “I’d have to spend my time looking over my shoulder.”
