From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Asperse \As*perse"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Aspersed}; p. pr. &
     vb. n. {Aspersing}.] [L. aspersus, p. p. of aspergere to
     scatter, sprinkle; ad + spargere to strew. See {Sparse}.]
     1. To sprinkle, as water or dust, upon anybody or anything,
        or to besprinkle any one with a liquid or with dust.
        --Heywood.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. To bespatter with foul reports or false and injurious
        charges; to tarnish in point of reputation or good name;
        to slander or calumniate; as, to asperse a poet or his
        writings; to asperse a man's character.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              With blackest crimes aspersed.        --Cowper.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: To slander; defame; detract from; calumniate; vilify.
  
     Usage: To {Asperse}, {Defame}, {Slander}, {Calumniate}. These
            words have in common the idea of falsely assailing the
            character of another. To asperse is figuratively to
            cast upon a character hitherto unsullied the
            imputation of blemishes or faults which render it
            offensive or loathsome. To defame is to detract from a
            man's honor and reputation by charges calculated to
            load him with infamy. Slander (etymologically the same
            as scandal) and calumniate, from the Latin, have in
            common the sense of circulating reports to a man's
            injury from unworthy or malicious motives. Men asperse
            their neighbors by malignant insinuations; they defame
            by advancing charges to blacken or sully their fair
            fame; they slander or calumniate by spreading
            injurious reports which are false, or by magnifying
            slight faults into serious errors or crimes.
            [1913 Webster]

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:

  asperse
      v 1: charge falsely or with malicious intent; attack the good
           name and reputation of someone; "The journalists have
           defamed me!" "The article in the paper sullied my
           reputation" [syn: {defame}, {slander}, {smirch}, {asperse},
           {denigrate}, {calumniate}, {smear}, {sully}, {besmirch}]
