Gerrymaloning

Sir: We are familiar with the term "gerrymander" when applied to the manipulation of constituency boundaries to favour a political party. Will we find ourselves using the term "gerrymalone" when we want to describe a bad loser, or someone who refuses to accept the result of a ballot?
