House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has weighed in on Kevin Spacey's character in "House or Cards" before.

But never like this.

Asked by the Daily Pilot about Spacey -- who plays the majority whip and called McCarthy while researching the role -- McCarthy offered this:

"He portrays this person with all the wrong things you hear about Washington. He literally murders one member," McCarthy said. "If I could murder one member, I'd never have to worry about another vote."
