The flyers have been circulating countywide since May 2020 to help courts deal with the restrictions around COVID-19 and to assist drivers in uploading documents online and avoiding as much in-person contact as possible. The typo was only found on those flyers handed out in Miami Beach.
The flyers were provided by a court spokesperson and sent to Miami-Dade Police, which then produced its own version and the alleged mistake was made in the printing process.
Judge Steve Leifman called the whole scenario “disgusting.” And since the discovery of the flyers, officers in Miami Beach are forced to give drivers outdated brochures just to be sure they aren’t getting the URL that leads them to the Trump store.
President Joe Biden won Miami Beach by a whopping 60% in 2020. But not everyone in Miami was a fan of the senator from Delaware.
In October, a City of Miami police officer was captured at a polling place wearing a face mask supporting Trump. The mask read: “Trump 2020: NO more bull***.” He was immediately called out for voter intimidation.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez told the Miami NBC station at the time that the officer was wearing the mask while voting. Police are not allowed to wear anything with a party affiliation while in uniform; this was not addressed.
“It obviously creates a situation… for us, officers have a responsibility… to protect our residents and they have to do that in an impartial manner,” Suarez said.
None of this is particularly shocking, given who the state’s governor is. Since taking office, Gov. Ron DeSantis has been winning in his apparent personal quest to out-Trump Trump and further his agenda of total fascism—from his support for the “Don’t Say Gay” bill to his newest piece of legislation, the “Stop Wrongs Against Our Kids and Employees Act” (“Stop W.O.K.E. Act),” to his all-out slaughter of COVID-19 mitigations such as masks and vaccines.
