Caught on video: Dem delegate’s botched DC parking job turns into fiasco, goes viral

Veteran Washington Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton not only can’t vote in Congress, she appears incapable of parking too.

The 77-year-old Holmes Norton has represented the District of Columbia in Congress as a non-voting delegate since 1991, but clearly hasn’t mastered the art of downtown parking.

Instead of parking at the angle defined by the painted lines on the pavement, she took it head on, repeatedly striking another vehicle in the process, according to the play-by-play commentary in the video posted by Roll Call on Tuesday.

The Hill tweeted:

And the replies came flying in:

According to Holmes Norton’s communications director, Benjamin Fritsch, the parking mishap didn’t result in any damage.

“The Congresswoman heard back from the owner of the only car she was close enough to damage,” he told The Hill.

“The owner reported no damages.”
