Fascinating he said, he said, from the Post-Tribune :

CROWN POINT -- A staffer for Barack Obama's presidential campaign promised to deliver votes for Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels if county Republicans supported satellite voting centers in three Democratic strongholds, Lake County Republican Chairman John Curley alleged Wednesday.

Obama spokesman Jonathan Swain quickly denied the allegation, saying that no one in the Obama campaign ever offered Curley such a deal.

"I told (Evans), 'I'm worried about Mitch Daniels,' " Curley said.

According to Curley, Evans then offered to "procure votes" for Daniels at the satellite locations since Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jill Long Thompson has no chance of defeating Daniels.

"He told me 'Don't worry about the governor. We can get votes for the governor up there,' " Curley recalled. "I told him to forget it."
