One who authors and approves legislation on behalf of the populace, usually a representative such as a congressman or senator.

See conflict of interest and self-serving.
In a democracy, the authority to author and approve legislation would reside with the people. However, that would not be conducive to the job security of lawyers and politicians, so legislators make sure it isn't done that way.
