    Does this sound correct English?

    "...while the richest of the politicians become thieves to try to pay their mansions." Context: writing about social differences and the fact that what politicians steal, serves them to live a luxurious life.

    Thanks a lot.

    Yes, it sounds fine to me, except it should be pay for their mansions.
