Jack Lew’s loopy signature showing signs of improvement
WASHINGTON (AP) — Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew may not have succeeded yet in getting a grand budget bargain with Congress, but at least his handwriting is improving. And it is expected to be even better when the time comes for him to affix his "Jacob Lew" to the nation's currency.
Lew's handwriting was so bad before that it even drew presidential notice.
President Barack Obama joked in January when he nominated Lew for the Treasury post that he had never noticed before how illegible Lew's signature was. Lew served as Obama's chief of staff and also as director of the Office of Management and Budget before taking the Treasury job.
Lew's scrawl as OMB director consisted of a series of loops that bore no resemblance to his name.
