The first Latina elected to Congress, Republican Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen announced that she's retiring after more than three decades in elected office.

Ros-Lehtinen became the first GOP member of the House to support same-sex marriage. She proposes legislation making US funding for the UN contingent on extensive reform. Her bill will also call for the United States to withdraw from the UNHRC, and she says that Israel is the only country on the council's permanent agenda, while abuses by rogue regimes like Cuba, China, and Syria are ignored.

Why is this well known Cuban-born politician yet another legislator calling it quits after all these years?
