MIAMI (AP) — A Miami police officer is facing discipline after he was photographed wearing a mask promoting President Donald Trump inside an early voting site while wearing his uniform.

Miami-Dade County Democratic Chairman Steve Simeonidis tweeted Tuesday a photo of the officer, saying it was taken inside a polling place at the county government center.

It shows the officer wearing a blue, white and red Trump 2020 mask containing a phrase with a curse word.

Miami Police Chief Jorge Colina said the behavior is unacceptable, a violation of departmental policy and will be addressed. The Miami police union had no immediate comment.
