Must love dogs … and budget-cutting

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) brought her dog, Maya, to the Capitol on Friday. And just like any political tourist, Maya wanted to meet the potential 2016 presidential candidates.

Alas, this photo was posted in happier times for Ros-Lehtinen's constituents -- shortly before LeBron James announced that he was leaving her hometown Miami Heat to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

No word yet on how Ros-Lehtinen (or Maya) felt about the news.
