Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) might not have a vote in Congress, and if she keeps driving like this, she might not have a parking spot either.

Roll Call posted a video, which quickly went viral, of the longtime delegate missing the mark with a parking job between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings on Wednesday.

The spots on the street are slanted, but Holmes Norton pulled into a spot between two slated cars head-on.

Roll Call reports that she hit one of the cars parked next to her, but the video only captures the aftermath.

Holmes Norton’s communications director, Benjamin Fritsch, told The Hill that the parking flap didn’t end in any damage.

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

“The owner reported no damages.”

Twitter was quick to weigh in on the parking job.
