A photo of a City of Miami police officer in a Trump 2020 mask is going viral after it was shared by Steve Simeonidis, the Chair of the Miami Dade Dems:
Here is @CityofMiami Police Officer Daniel Ubeda, in full uniform with badge and gun wearing his Trump mask inside of the polling location in government center.
This is city funded voter intimidation.
Ubeda should be suspended immediately. pic.twitter.com/TbJxu6mcem

According to CNN contributor Ann Navarro, the officer will be disciplined:
Regardless of Party, we must all defend the integrity of our election. If you see an irregularity, make it known.

There’s no word yet, however, just what this discipline might be. We’ll keep you posted.
