EXCLUSIVE: Eleanor Holmes Norton explains botched parking job

The 1 minute, 42-second long video shows Norton getting out of her car once to walk away before turning around and coming back to give it another shot. But instead, she grabs something she appears to have forgotten (according to Roll Call) out of her car and walks away-- leaving the terrible parking job in her rear view mirror, if you will.

Speaking exclusively to FOX 5's Tom Fitzgerald on Thursday, Norton said she was late for a TV interview, in an area where she doesn't normally park, and wasn't expecting construction or the six-point turn she would need to execute in order to park.

Norton's staffers say the car next to her reported no damage. Capitol Police say no report was ever made.
