Lew's loopy signature first raised eyebrows during his time as Director of the Office of Management and Budget, when he added his scribble to a lot of official documents.
So is his autograph awesome or "awful?" Social media users weighed in Wednesday:
If Jack Lew is sworn in as Treasury Sec. get excited about his signature on all US paper currency. Looks like a slinky! nymag.com/daily/intellig…— Abby Huntsman (@HuntsmanAbby) January 9, 2013
Putting Jack Lew's signature on dollar bills will do more to hurt the U.S.'s fiscal standing than a $1T coin BY FAR. nym.ag/UWrww3— Kevin Roose (@kevinroose) January 9, 2013
If you're not a fan, there's still hope for neatness. New York Daily News points out that Geithner made sure his U.S. dollar signature looked nicer than this regular one.
