President Obama joked that he considered taking back his offer to make Jack Lew his next treasury secretary after seeing his loopy, illegible signature.
President Barack Obama plans to announce his nomination of White House chief of staff and budget expert Jack Lew as his next Treasury secretary on Thursday at an event at 1:30 p.m. ET (1330 GMT), a White House official said.
Jack Lew, the Orthodox Jew whose signature is going to be on every single dollar bill, has a pretty weird signature. And wait till you read what a handwriting expert says about it.
A Rhode Island man tried to use counterfeit $100 bills, but made a drastic mistake. “Fox & Friends” reports the bills were supposed to have Benjamin Franklin’s face on them, but instead had Abraham Lincoln’s face. WHDH explains the mistake happened when the man bleached $5 bills to look like the $100 bills, but he accidentally left Lincoln’s watermark. The suspect used the bills three times at a local Target! News 12 New Jersey even had their graphics guy come up with a design, but he failed.
