This Signature Will Be on Every Dollar in America
President Obama is planning to appoint Jacob Lew as Treasury Secretary, which means his ridiculous signature will be printed on every new bill in the US. Because why not give the impression that one of the USA's highest officials is illiterate?
As you can see from the picture, Lew's signature is one step above drawing an X. Obama had this to say about Lew's penmanship:
I had never noticed Jack’s signature, and when this was highlighted yesterday in the press, I considered rescinding my offer to appoint him... Jack assures me that he is going to work to make at least one letter legible in order not to debase our currency.
Past treasury secretaries have worked on their penmanship for legibility, but when White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked if Lew was actually working on his, she said, "Not that I'm aware of."
