According to The Oklahoman, Tulsa County District Judge James Caputo is under investigation for ties to business that was front for prostitution.
In interview with The Oklahoman, Caputo said the accusations against him are false.
"Judges and public figures today are routinely targeted by people with political or personal motivations," Caputo said to The Oklahoman. "It seems the more salacious the accusation the more press and attention the accusations receive. If ... such totally false accusations are being investigated I welcome the opportunity to address them personally and fully with any investigating body. "It would appear to be no coincidence that such unfounded accusations are made less than three weeks before Election Day."
On Tuesday, Caputo refused to step down after being notified of the investigation, The Oklahoman said.
