Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton may need to work on her parking skills.

Norton, 77, was seen exiting her vehicle Wednesday morning, which was parked awkwardly in an angled parking spot on Capitol Hill. Norton, a 12-term Democrat representing Washington, D.C., in Congress, pulled straight in to the spot, coming very close to each vehicle.

Some congressional staffers who witnessed the parking fail Wednesday morning laughed at the display.

In the video, Norton appears to rub up against each vehicle. A visual inspection hours later showed that neither vehicle parked on either side of Norton appeared to sustain any body damage.

Sources say Norton left her car in the spot for about 30 minutes before returning to move it, leaving a business card on the windshield of the Nissan Extera.

"The Congresswoman heard from the owner of the only car she was close enough to damage. The owner reported no damage," a spokesperson for Norton said.
