Senator Tom Coburn says he'll continue practicing medicine

Updated:
MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) -- Senator Tom Coburn says he'll continue practicing medicine whether the US Senate agrees to allow him to do so or not.

Coburn is a doctor and specializes in high-risk pregnancies, but the Senate Ethics Committee has told him to wind down his clinic by September 30th.

Coburn is asking the US Senate to allow him to continue and a vote is expected next month.

But Coburn says he'll either continue by paying for it himself or to make other senators censure him. He says he's also considering joining the military or working through a charitable organization to continue his medical practice.
