Steve Simeonidis, the chairman of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that he took the photo of Officer Daniel Ubeda. He then posted the picture on Twitter and criticized him.
“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,” Simeonidis tweeted. “This is city funded voter intimidation. Ubeda should be suspended immediately.”
In a statement, City of Miami Police said they were aware of the photograph, calling the officer’s behavior unacceptable.
“This behavior is unacceptable, a violation of departmental policy, and is being addressed immediately,” City of Miami Police said.
