The Jack Lew signature on every dollar bill if he becomes the Secretary of the Treasury


Jack Lew, President Obama’s reported pick to replace outgoing Treasury secretary Tim Geithner, is known as a no-nonsense backroom negotiator with wonkish tendencies, who is admired on the left and grumbled about on the right.

A lesser-known but extremely pertinent fact about Lew is that he has the world’s worst signature. And pretty soon, that signature could be on every single one of your dollar bills.


I kind of like it...

2. I'm amazed at the coverage this is getting.

I cannot imagine caring what the man's signature looks like.

6. wonderful choice ...

In June 2006, Lew was named chief operating officer of Citigroup's Alternative Investments unit, a proprietary trading group. The unit he oversaw invested in a hedge fund "that bet on the housing market to collapse."

7. Some would prefer somebody who was WRONG about the economy, apparently...

I kinda prefer people who see things clearly and get it right to run the Treasury.

8. Lawrence O'Donnell covered this last night

He showed that Geithner's signature was equally bad, but for the currency he cleaned it up into a neat, legible, and totally different signature. Lew will do the same, I'm sure.

10. He used to decorate the top of Hostess cupcakes--old habits die hard.



I'll bet he will do what his predecessor did, and come up with a legible signature.

11. He's done well since that job ended.

Hostess cupcakes are just terrible for your health.

Yet, somehow, I feel hungry.
