    to do something about it, but unless laws were broken a la Tom DeLay's 2005 GOPAC shenanigans, they did NOT "steal" the house, they merely engaged in hugely immoral and unethical but perfectly legal tricks to hold onto the house.

    Is there any signs that laws were broken, because if they were, and it was widespread or coordinated at the national level, it opens up the possibility of nullifying some elections and forcing new elections under redrawn districts.

    Any chance of that?

      but the secrecy, speed, financing, and absolute blocking of input in the way the maps were drawn is certainly well into unethical territory.  It probably would have been illegal if laws written years ago had foreseen the hyper-partisanship that the GOP has used to create so many unrepresentative districts.
