Veteran Washington Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton not only can’t vote in Congress, she appears incapable of parking too.

The 77-year-old Holmes Norton has represented the District of Columbia in Congress as a non-voting delegate since 1991, but clearly hasn’t mastered the art of downtown parking.

“The Congresswoman heard back from the owner of the only car she was close enough to damage,” he told The Hill.

“The owner reported no damages.”
