Representative Tim Moor sponsored a resolution in the Texas House of Representatives
in Austin, Texas calling on the House to commend Albert de Salvo for his unselfish
service to "his country, his state and his community."
The resolution stated that "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." The resolution was passed
Representative Moore then revealed that he had only tabled the motion to show how the
legislature passes bills and resolutions often without reading them or understanding what
they say. Albert de Salvo was the Boston Strangler.
