Malapropism: Taint/paint

I heard a sports commentator just then talking about how all sports codes were being similarly tarnished under the recent "drugs in sport" report.

"They're all being tainted with the same brush"

A very economic use of words because if you think about it - it makes sense. I'm not sure the cleverness was deliberate, though.
