"Politico sicks [ sic ] no less than FOUR reporters onto vague nearly 20 year old allegations to smear new GOP Frontrunner Herman Cain."

I'm no grammar nazi but that's fairly rank.

How is this a grammar issue?

Usage is "sic" or "siccing", the latter preferable here, particularly by turning passive into active; "sics" less preferred.
