look up any word, like donkey punch:
 
1.
v. Probing someone's personal life/past in an attempt to find information to publicly discredit the person; and failing that, simply making things up about the person. See also scaifed.

Different from blackmail in that the intent is always to go public with any information discovered/invented.
Bill Clinton's administration was the victim of a decade-long scaifing.
