A staffer of Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) attempted to park the senator’s car in a space reserved for drivers with physical disabilities at an event in Toledo on Wednesday.

Brown attended a “roundtable” at a local United Auto Workers (UAW) hall. While the senator spoke to attendees, a staffer backed a Jeep into the spot nearest to the building’s entrance.

As the staffer exited the car and closed the door, an America Rising tracker asked him if he had a handicapped parking permit.

“Didn’t realize you guys had a handicap parking sticker,” the tracker said.

“Oh, I’m sorry,” said the staffer, who got back in the car and drove to another part of the parking lot.

Government officials abusing their power to park in spots reserved for individuals with physical disabilities is a hot-button issue. On Wednesday in New Mexico, a government vehicle was seen parked in a handicapped spot outside a busy shopping mall.

“I feel like they’re using their power unnecessarily,” one local resident said.
