Malversation is a noun that refers to corrupt behavior.
The Latin word versare (ver SAR ay) means ‘to turn.’ After evolving into a word of English, it took on the prefix M-A-L, meaning ‘bad.’ By combining these, we get a word that refers to corruption. Our word of the day may be used in any concept that involves corruption, but it generally refers to corruption by someone in public office.
All the malversation in the city council has harmed many political careers, but it has mostly affected those who offered bribes to cover them up. corruption is never popular among voters, and least popular involves efforts to cover up past misdeeds.
