An internal Homeland Security investigation found that Secret Service employees improperly accessed a database 60 times in search of information that would embarrass House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz, NBC News reports. 

Homeland Security Inspector General John Roth discussed the investigation at a joint House-Senate hearing Tuesday.

The information was accessed between March 24 and April 2.

“Knowledge of Chairman Chaffetz’s application was widespread and was fueled and confirmed by improper access to the Secret Service database at issue,” Roth said.

Chaffetz is a frequent critics of the agency, which appeared to be the motive behind embarrassing him.

The Secret Service apologized to the Utah Republican last month.
