Texas’ House of Representatives once unanimously passed a bill commending the Boston Strangler

To demonstrate how careless he thought the legislative process in Texas was, on April Fool’s Day 1971, Tom Moore Jr. introduced a resolution to commend Albert de Salvo.

This compassionate gentleman’s dedication and devotion to his work has enabled the weak and the lonely throughout the nation to achieve and maintain a new degree of concern for their future. He has been officially recognized by the state of Massachusetts for his noted activities and unconventional techniques involving population control and applied psychology.

Moore retracted the resolution after it passed unanimously. Albert de Salvo was the Boston Strangler.
