House Republican Freshmen throwing down gauntlet with Boehner?

It's becoming increasingly more difficult for House Speaker John Boehner to convince people he is not blocking  the Fast and Furious contempt citation Darrell Issa has been threatening to issue to Eric Holder.  It's become a self-evident truth and some House Republican freshman have decided to call Boehner out on it.

Via Roll Call:
Six freshman members of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday called on GOP leadership to bring a contempt of Congress resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder to the House floor, charging he has “thwarted and obstructed” Congress’ efforts to conduct Congressional oversight of the "Operation Fast and Furious" gun-running program.

In a letter to Speaker John Boehner (Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.); Reps. Sandy Adams (Fla.), Ben Quayle (Ariz.), Tim Griffin (Ark.), Dennis Ross (Fla.), Tom Marino (Pa.) and Trey Gowdy (S.C.) argued that “the House of Representatives has seen its proper oversight function thwarted and obstructed. It's time for the House to formally recognize the obvious — that Attorney General Holder has not and will not cooperate with the legitimate investigation launched by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and is therefore in contempt of Congress.”
Gowdy is exhibiting true leadership. Back on April 26th, he told Greta that Holder would be held accountable - with a contempt order - no later than Memorial Day. His word is on the line. If he's mad at Boehner now, wait until Memorial Day passes without that contempt order being issued.

Fast forward to the 4:05 mark:
