First No Voting Rights, Now This...

Let's hope tonight the parking is a little better than last night. Washington Post Reporter Mary Beth Sheridan was out at the exhibition game last night and witnessed a dispute between an aide for Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) and the police.

An aide to the congresswoman was outside one of the high-priced garages adjacent to the park fighting the good fight for the congresswoman. The aide, David Grasso, said Norton had permission to park in the garage. But police told him it was limited to season ticket-holders with passes.

"She would like to talk to you," said Grasso holding out a cellphone to the officer.

"I don't talk to anyone," said the police officer, who declined to identify himself to Sheridan.

The officer told Grasso that Norton should reach out to D.C. Police Chief Capt. Cathy L. Lanier if she wanted their orders changed.

"That's crazy," said Grasso, walking away.

Police later said that Norton was allowed to drive into Parking Lot B after one of the event sponsors at the baseball game came out with a parking pass for her.
