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.
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's scrawl as OMB director consisted of a series of loops that bore no resemblance to his name.
Recent examples of Lew's handwriting show improvement. All the letters of Lew's last name could be made out in his signature on the annual report of the Financial Stability Council, which came out in late April.
