LAKE ARTHUR, La. -- A police officer in Louisiana has been fired after a photo of him at a Ku Klux Klan rally in North Carolina surfaced.

KPLC reported that the Lake Arthur town council unanimously voted to terminate Raymond Mott earlier this week after the photo started circulating on Facebook.

"The picture speaks for itself," Mott said. "I'm standing at a rally against illegal immigration. There's not much to be said about the picture. I've never denied it was me."

The photo was apparently taken at a Klan rally at an undisclosed location in North Carolina last summer. It was said to have been an anti-immigration rally.
