They're only going to have maybe 20% of the ballots "counted" before the venue kicks them out next week. Then what?

That's a good thing for them. No credible recount is going to find something different than the previous 3 counts. So, if they finish the count they would either have to admit that they got the same answer as the previous counts and Trump lost, or they would have to make up ridiculous stories about box loads of bamboo paper ballots shipped from China that they discovered and threw out. While most of the Trump cult appear to be the most gullible morons on the planet, the lies they would have to make up to claim Trump actually won are likely a step too far - even for many Republicans.

But if they are thrown out of the facility before they can complete the count, they will simply keep telling vague stories of unsubstantiated voter fraud that they would be able to prove if they could just keep counting. It's better for them that they don't finish counting. That way if they are called on for proof of their claims, they can whine about those evil Democrats who kept them from counting ballots over and over again until they got the result they wanted.
