   Depends on context, but here are some possible ways to say that:

 

 If a politician is working more in his interest than in the public´sEle está legislando em causa própria.

 

 

 If there´s a conflict of interest between anyone acting solely in his own interest.

As John Adams warned, "A single assembly, possessed of all the powers of government, would make arbitrary laws for their own interest, execute all laws arbitrarily for their own interest, and adjudge all controversies in their own favor." Adams clearly anticipated something like the Clinton presidency. What he did not anticipate was the perverse reluctance of Congress to defend its prerogatives.
