NEW YORK (AP) — New York Rep. Charles Rangel says he still loves Congress, despite a showdown with colleagues over ethics violations that led to his recent censure.

Speaking to reporters Saturday at an event in Harlem, the Democrat appeared confident and as defiant as ever about the allegations. He received his punishment Thursday on the House floor.

But he saved his ire for the media, rather than his fellow Congress members.

The House found he had failed to pay taxes on a vacation villa, filed misleading financial disclosure forms and improperly solicited donations for a college center from corporations with business before his committee.

Rangel acknowledged some mistakes, but said he never enriched himself.
