WAX2002061807 - WASHINGTON, June 18 (UPI) - FILE PHOTO - Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura Tuesday announced he will not seek re-election, saying his "heart and soul" is no longer in the job. The decision came amid news reports his son, Tyrel, 22, had misused the governor's mansion for late-night parties without his parents present. The former professional wrestler known as "The Body" was elected in 1998 as an independent and has had a stormy relationship with both the press and the Legislature. cc/FILE PHOTO/Xeriqua Garfinkel UPI
