English term or phrase:get away with
the new chapel [donated privately by a rich family] got away with Robert something awful because he didn't think of it first
Pogubilam się w tym zdaniu. On tę kaplicę skrytykował, czy wręcz przeciwnie?
Sorry. this is the whole context I've got. A family donated a chapel. Robert was the most prominent member of the congregation and nothing ever happened without his approval. Actually now Robert is dead, and this is what his widow says to a visitor showing him the chapel.
