Article Photos: Lew's loopy signature may end up on dollar bills 1/1

This Sept. 21, 2011, memo posted on the White House website shows then-Office of Management and Budget director Jack Lew's signature. Lewâs nomination for treasury secretary means a new signature could soon be coming to the dollar bill. Not that youâll be able to read it. Lewâs signature starts off promising enough, with a soft âJ.â But what follows next are seven loopy scribbles, rendering his signature completely illegible. The treasury secretaryâs 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. (AP Photo/The White House)
