LAWYERS for Julian Assange have expressed anger about an alleged smear campaign against the Australian WikiLeaks founder.
Incriminating police files were published in the British newspaper that has used him as its source for hundreds of leaked US embassy cables.
In a move that surprised many of Mr Assange's closest supporters on Saturday, The Guardian newspaper published previously unseen police documents that accused Mr Assange in graphic detail of sexually assaulting two Swedish women.
Oof. And the punchline?
One witness is said to have stated: "Not only had it been the world's worst screw, it had also been violent."
That's the sort of publicity a fella might not want, although I suppose Assange could claim that it would be difficult to consider the qualitative assessment to be authoritative. It can't do a lot for his future dating prospects, though.
