DC delegate's bad parking job becomes viral sensation

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Call it the parking job seen 'round the web.

A video has gone viral of D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton executing an objectively poor parking job -- even by Washington standards.

The incident, and video, were first reported by Roll Call. A tipster was apparently on the scene and watched as Norton angled her car into a diagonal spot near Capitol Hill, ending up practically perpendicular to the surrounding vehicles.

The tipster told Roll Call this was around the time of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's address to Congress on Wednesday.

An aide apparently was on the scene helping D.C.'s non-voting delegate. They could be seen returning to the car -- seemingly to retrieve something -- but then leaving without trying to re-park.

Roll Call reported that the tipster said Norton even "hit the car next to her and did not leave a note, though I couldn't see any damage."

But her office disputed this, saying they did leave a note.

On Thursday, the delegate released a statement acknowledging she could have done a better job: "I may need to go take some new parking lessons, or perhaps upgrade to a self-parking car.”
