Eleanor Holmes Norton is Washington, D.C.’s non-voting delegate in the House of Representatives. And while the district’s license plates protest, “Taxation Without Representation,” her primary focus should be on using a train station after this parking violation.
In a video sent to Roll Call, the 77-year-old is seen trying to park her car straight on in a diagonal spot between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings:
“If she leaves it like that, that’s the worst parking job I’ve ever witnessed.” – Incredulous worst-parking-job-ever witness
According to Roll Call, the staffer who owned the red vehicle that was apparently scraped during the parking debacle reached out to Norton’s office. “The Congresswoman heard from the owner of the only car she was close enough to damage,” said a Norton representative. “The owner reported no damage.”
It’s tempting to call that a happy ending, but with Norton still on the road, D.C. drivers should have theirs heads on a swivel.
