Who is the liar: Josefina Vázquez Mota, or Luis Carlos Ugalde?

An odd spat that I don't quite know what to make of: Josefina Vázquez Mota, PAN front runner and coordinator of Felipe Calderón's 2006 campaign, said that Luis Carlos Ugalde, then head of the Federal Electoral Institute, called her to tell her that Calderón was ahead - this before his 11 pm "too close to call" speech.

Ugalde has responded very publicly, accusing Vázquez Mota of lying: He never called her or anyone.

What's behind this spat? Why did Vázquez Mota bring it up, and why is Ugalde taking such a strong public stance?
