    "Washington D.C. — A congresswoman hoping to soon lead a powerful committee that shapes transportation policy might want to work on her parking skills.

    A video from 2015 has recently emerged on social media showing Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) attempting to park her small car into a wide-open spot along New Jersey Avenue Northeast in D.C.
    Let’s just say it doesn’t go so well.
    Roll Call reported that onlookers captured the scene as Delegate Norton, who was 77 years old at the time, repeatedly scraped a small SUV to her left before bumping a sedan on her right as she tried to park between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings.

    “Unbelievable! No note or anything,” another observer exclaimed as Del. Norton returned to her vehicle briefly before walking away. “If she leaves it like that, it’s the worst parking job I’ve ever witnessed.”
    Del. Norton, who currently chairs the Highways and Transit Subcommittee, is vying to replace retiring Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) as the chair of the powerful House Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) Committee which makes a host of laws greatly impacting truckers and the trucking industry.
