Would it be bad to do a non-relevant internship sophomore summer if I've had previous finance internships?

I did a local PWM one last summer and a local IB one during the fall semester. I am interested in interning in my second major (political science) in summer 2021 because I really like it and would never have the opportunity to do so again since I plan on pursing IB.

With that being said, would it look bad to do this for SA 2022 recruiting? It would probably be something like a region focused policy internship. I've also taken plenty of finance courses (M&A, LBO, CorpFin, Acc), so I'm covered on the interview technicals.
