Recount Observers Get Booted Out

We are full on into the ballot recounts in Dane & Milwaukee counties. Some of the news reports, from print newspapers are showing how the GOP observers are not what they claim to be. GOP, Dem, Independent... Citizens for a Tangerine Future?
Observers must register if they are representing a specific group, candidate or campaign. The main stream media is surely causing some of the Trump supporters to fess up as to who they support as an observer. The recount officials are getting fed up with them, as the links below report from the two county recounts. It's actually getting a bit funny when you read what these 'patriots' are doing.

Some observers are interrupting constantly, challenging everything on every ballot and some have been removed for repeatedly violating the rules like; not wearing a mask properly, not keeping distance from ballot tabulators which is only 3 feet, not the public recommended 6 feet and one was removed for physically pushing an official.

Some observers are falsely claiming to be independent observers. When asked by reporters, they actually admit they are there to support Trump and not 'independents'. So are they fraudulent observers? or just innocent poorly informed concerned citizens?
Observers do get a copy of the rules and have to sign in, regardless of who they represent.

The best stunt, so far, may be one of Trump's lawyers wants his own ballot rejected!

Please post some of your findings of weird observer behaviors you come across.
