So, what have I done ?
Well, I have told her (I know, I know - I sought your views then completely ignored the wisdom of crowds. Shame on me!) But when I called to tip her off, her I did also add, "of course, if you fulfill your offer to these candidates it will show that you really do care about the party and not just your own self promotion."
And guess what?
Within 30 minutes of my call, she had emailed the three candidates and cancelled her offer to help, which saddened, but did not surprise me.
I am still pleased that I did the right thing!
