Hello everyone, I've been looking for an expression that means "try to win by dubious means, i.e, complaining a lot, accusing the opponents, making up stories, emphasizing negative things about the opponents, etc. Please, take a look at the contexts: Person 1: I know what you do behind the scenes, you are corrupt, you lie to people. I am the best candidate because I am honest, I don't lie and am the best prepared. Person 2: Mr. Person 1, you are trying to win by dubious means. I think I am good enough to govern this country. You should try to play fair, if you're so good then you don't need to accuse and criticize so much. ==>Is there an expression for "trying to win by dubious means", trying to resort to anything(good or bad), try to win at any cost? Thank you very much in advance!
