This is never going to end, is it?
After Palm Beach County SOE Susan Bucher refused to comply with a court order to submit ballots for review and then declaring it “impossible” to complete the recount by the deadline coming up this Thursday, a judge has ordered an extension:

More from the Palm Beach Post:
The order would include extending the recounting of the U.S. Senate race between incumbent Bill Nelson and Gov. Rick Scott, the governor’s race between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum and the race for agriculture commissioner between Democrat Nikki Fried and Republican Matt Caldwell.
Democrat Jim Bonfiglio, who is in a tight race against Republican Mike Caruso in the District 89 race for a state House seat, told The Palm Beach Post on Tuesday afternoon that he spoke to circuit judge Karen Gievers around 1 p.m. during a case management conference call concerning the lawsuit he filed to extend the deadline to allow time for a recount in his race, which he trails by 37 votes.
Bonfiglio, the mayor of Ocean Ridge, said he asked the judge to extend all the races or put his race first since his race would require less time to recount. He said the judge decided to extend all the races.
What's that? Six extra days to "find" more ballots? https://t.co/vHF9qziW0b

UPDATE: Judge's order to extend deadline for recounts in PBC is now moot because the case has been moved to federal court.
