Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle show off their acting skills in a new video of the "real life" edition of "House of Cards."
Other members who have cameos include Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Reps. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), Donna Edwards (D-Md.), Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) and Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). Why so many South Carolina legislators? Spacey's character is a Democrat who represents the 5th District of the Palmetto State.
So who was the best actor? Tough call, but we'll give the Oscar for best lawmaker in a short video to Gowdy for his great delivery of the line, "I have zero tolerance for betrayal." Honorable mentions go to McCarthy, Edwards and Scott's furrowed eyebrows.
