Lews 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. Lews signature starts off promising enough, with a soft J. But what follows next are seven loopy scribbles, rendering his signature completely illegible.
The treasury secretary's signature is emblazoned in the lower right corner of U.S. dollar bills of all denominations. It remains to be seen whether President Barack Obama will make Lew change up his signature or if the Senate will make it a condition of his confirmation.
