Treasury appointment could throw signature on bills for a loop, then another, then ...
WASHINGTON — Jack Lew's nomination for Treasury secretary means a new signature could soon be coming to the dollar bill.
Not that you'll be able to read it.
Lew's signature starts off promising, with a soft “J.” What follows are seven loopy scribbles, rendering his signature illegible. New York magazine labeled it “a Slinky that has lost its spring.”
The Treasury secretary's signature is emblazoned in the lower right corner of dollar bills of all denominations.
No word from the White House on whether President Obama asked Lew to clean up his signature before nominating him for the Treasury post.
