Conlict of Interest

If a School Board member is requesting reimbursement for some legal expenses and has it on the agenda but no other board member makes a motion to approve the request, so the requesting board member makes the motion to reimburse himself in order to bring the item to the table for discussion and action, yes or no. The requesting board member would not take part in the discussion and would abstain on any vote on the motion. I have seen this tactic used to get an item on the table only with intentions to vote against the motion when a vote is taken or abstain if the subject was a personal conflict of interest. Is this an acceptable practice under the Robert's Rules of Order or is it a legal issue only?
