ezs note:  In case you missed it, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is one of the few Republicans who tirelessly worked for the rights of transgender citizens.  Notably, she is one of the few in her party who did not vote for the abysmal Donald Trump.  She is retiring after this term.  Goodbye, Ileana - we will miss you!
