English term or phrase: mudslinging
Definition from The Washington Post:
A personal attack made by one candidate or campaign against another.

Example sentence(s):
  • Mudslinging goes wrong when it is used indiscriminately and becomes noise that few listen to and most condemn. Mudslinging
  • This year hasn't seen that level of mudslinging, but the tone of the race is undeniably more negative than in the states that came earlier on the calendar. CBS News
  • Enough political mudslinging can lead to a candidate dropping out of the race, especially if his or her family is being viciously attacked. Political mudslinging can become so ugly that is can cause a potential nominee to lose favor with his or her political party. WiseGEEK
