First of all, can you imagine the MSM and the talking-heads were this a republican pol?
This is democrat Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton.
The fact that this woman is a senior citizen is not the point, unless she is tested for any sight … or mental disorder or deterioration(s) aside from her ultra-liberal “Progressive” nature. There are plenty of seniors out there driving far better than most of the 16-20 something year olds.
The point is she is too short-sided and arrogant to see and understand that she is going in the wrong direction down that lane to be able to pull into that parking spot between those two cars.
According to the video dialog she repeats her maneuvering mistakes over and over on every failed try, actually contacting the red vehicle to the right of the video. When she finally puts her car in ‘park’ and leaves it, her vehicle is not positioned properly inside the designated parking lines. Said red vehicle beside hers will have a major, and probably impossible, problem backing out of their own parking space to leave because the driver’s ass-end of Norton’s f***ing car is in the way.
That being bad enough, she does not bother to even call the police (a useless Capitol cop just cruising past her in the video) or, at the very least, leave a note with her contact and auto insurance information on the vehicle’s windshield. She just walks away, only returning to her car a second later for something she forgot inside.
And this woman is just one of those sitting comfortably on our dime, for life, in the U.S. Congress making more and more power-grabbing decisions on our money and our lives…
(Roll Call) – … A HOH tipster watched in horror Wednesday as the D.C. delegate, 77, awkwardly forced her way into a wide-open spot in the carefully controlled corridor of New Jersey Avenue Southeast sandwiched between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings.
Per our tipster, Norton performed the sub-par squeeze-in around the same time the rest of her colleagues were crowding into the House chamber to hear the joint address by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
At around the 40-second mark, an oblivious U.S. Capitol Police officer appears to zoom by on a motorcycle, right past the textbook parking offense.
Once the aide seen assisting Norton from outside the slow-moving vehicle finishes waving her into clearly disastrous position, Norton emerges from the car, clicks her remote-locking device (better safe than sorry) and starts to walk away.
Then, all of the sudden, she doubles back.
Has her conscience gotten the best of her? Is she going to slide a quickly composed apology onto the now-stuck truck’s windshield? Or perhaps a business card?
Norton simply retrieves some forgotten item from inside the car and then heads on her merry way.
Our spy estimates the entire head-scratching episode lasted about half an hour, including the painful insertion process and her 20-minute jaunt into Cannon.
Once done with her business, the tipster said Norton backed out of the space and rolled out onto the unsuspecting District streets.
Norton’s office claims the red vehicle belonged to one of their staffers, and that no damage was done.
Oh, sure … after this video started hitting the interwebs yesterday.
