There is a good expression for that in Russian. "распил бабла" =
"raspil babla" ~= "split the loot" ;) That's a usual thing with the
budgets in (new-Soviet) Russia - when it is spent on inadequately
expensive things (and part of the price returns to the govt people as
a form of bribes, named "откат" = "otkat" ~= "recoil":).
No accusations meant here, just mental associations, you know;)
