Parking a car is not one of the qualifications for a job in the U.S. Congress. For that, Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-N.C.) should count herself lucky. The congresswoman was recently captured on video demonstrating that she is geometrically challenged when it comes to pulling into a designated parking space.
According to Roll Call, the 77-year-old Norton “awkwardly forced her way into a wide-open spot in the carefully controlled corridor of New Jersey Avenue Southeast sandwiched between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings.”
[O]ne mystified observer … wisely recorded more than a minute of the automotive travesty…. The tipster said Norton rubbed the correctly positioned, red sports utility vehicle to her immediate left with her improperly angled silver sedan.
