Mudslinging

Posted by rns on June 11, 2011 at 10:29

Mudslinging?... I've found several sources that claim that this term literally came from reactions from voters to early American politicians "on the the stump", with if whom they disagreed, would pelt him with mud from the streets (which was liberally mixed with horse, cow, mule and other leavings). Anyone seen this?
