Named and blamed

Posted by John Bickett on October 02, 2005

On a Translation website, there's a request to translate thhe saying, "named and blamed" into Spanish. My first challenge is to understand the context of this saying (I haven't heard it in the U.S.). Does it mean that someone is being targeted and takes the fall, or does it mean that one is found-out and therefore shamed?
