Well, if this scandal hit the papers in the last year, it is a smear campaign.

This whole thing reminds me a bit of the story about Lyndon S. Johnson instructing his campaign manager to hint that his congressional opponent had "routine carnal knowledge of his barnyard sows". Johnson admitted it was a barefaced lie, "but let the bastard deny it."

Her refusal to talk at lenght about her brothers involvement in vicious murder does not prove her guilt nor her innocence. Royale has nothing to gain by tying herself to that criminal fuckup, so I dont see where the outrage comes from. She is a politican after all, not a saint.
