Jacob Lew’s real signature was so bad that he had to revamp it before
placing it on Federal Reserve notes. Now, that of Treasury
Secretary-designate Steven T. Mnuchin, while not worse, is just as
illegible. In fact, CNN reports, he has already changed it.
The news network found a copy of Mnuchin’s divorce papers from 2014,
upon which his signature was an indecipherable squiggle more
reminiscent of the inscriptions found on the coinage of the Ottoman
Empire than anything resembling English. The one on his recently
released financial disclosure forms is entirely different and
completely legible. Which one will be on the Federal Reserve notes, if
he is confirmed, remains in doubt.
