    see the forest through the sleaze

    Sometimes it's really hard to see the forest through the sleaze.

    What that means? Is that maybe the proverb?

    It's just a play on words. The original saying is "You can't see the wood for the trees". The writer has twisted it to suit the point which is being made.
