WASHINGTON (AP) - The District of Columbia’s delegate to Congress is getting attention for a botched parking job.

A video published Wednesday by Roll Call shows Democratic Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton getting out of her silver sedan after it was wedged awkwardly into an angled parking spot near the Capitol.

A spokesman for Norton, Benjamin Fritsch, confirmed that Norton was behind the wheel Wednesday morning. He says in a statement that he and Norton checked the cars on either side to see if there was any damage. He says they left a note on the car that was closest to Norton’s vehicle, and the owner called Norton’s office and reported no damage.

Norton is 77 years old and has served as the District’s nonvoting delegate since 1991.
