Representative Lynn Westmoreland steps in it.

"I am shocked that the Republican staff of a Republican-led committee in a Republican-majority Congress would do opposition research on a fellow Republican," first-term Rep. Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia wrote in a letter to fellow GOP lawmakers. "I do not see any other purpose behind the preparation of this report other than for it to be leaked to the press."

You're goddamned right, that's what the purpose is... because, like it or not, your voters and taxpayers are going to hold your feet to the fire, and if you balk, your base is going to stay home.
