Chinese term or phrase:
Lately I often heard this expression is used to mention a form of corruption in Taiwan. I wonder what it exactly is and how to say it in English.

Chinese translation:"A(buse)钱"= Abuse(misuse) the money = “滥用公款”。
Explanation:
既然是一种贪污受贿的形式,且字首又是“A”,若是出自台湾同胞之口,我想这个英文词不可能太生僻晦涩,“A” 应该是指"abuse" ,"A 钱"意指“滥用或乱用公款”。
