Judge Roy Moore (R-Ala.) released several tweets in response to a Washington Post report that he committed sexual misconduct on a 14-year-old girl in the 1970s.

Moore, 70, was 32 at the time of the alleged incident.

Moore, who is facing attorney Doug Jones (D) in the race to replace now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, said the "Obama-Clinton machine" is predictably launching vile attacks against him.

"The Obama-Clinton Machine’s liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I’ve ever faced," Moore tweeted. 

"The forces of evil will lie, cheat, steal –– even inflict physical harm –– if they believe it will silence and shut up Christian conservatives like you and me," he said to his supporters.

Moore called on his supporters to "stand up and fight back" against those forces who he said are "waging an all out war" on conservative Christian values.

"Our children and grandchildren's futures are on the line," he said.

Moore previously created controversy when he refused to order a Ten Commandments display to be taken down from a public building.

Several legislators including Sen John McCain (R-Ariz.) called for him to bow out of the race, while others like his Yellowhammer State counterpart Sen. Richard Shelby (R) said he should withdraw if the facts prove the Post correct.

Attorney David Wohl said the credibility of the reports is "completely zero" since the accuser waited four decades to report the alleged offense, adding that the woman chose to tell the Post and not the police.

Wohl called McCain's demand that Moore withdraw "outrageous."
