原来美国总统签名多为机器代劳!

 

这是美国政府内部一个“公开的秘密”,但没有人愿意谈及:很多人收藏在剪贴簿,或者装裱起来供众人欣赏的总统签名可能是自动签名机代劳的。
It's the open secret that nobody in government wants to talk about: That cherished presidential signature that's tucked away in a scrapbook or framed for all to see might never have passed under the president's hand.
几十年以来,两党各总统在需要完成繁重的签名任务时,自动签名机就派上了用场。不久前,自动签名机还被用于签署一项法案,这在美国历史上还属首次。
For decades, presidents of both parties have let an autopen do some of the heavy lifting when it comes to scrawling their signatures. The machine was recently put to use signing a bill into law, apparently a first.

据前总统老布什的自动签名机使用负责人吉姆·西科尼回忆,自动签名机不止一台,由于重复使用,机器的塑料签字模板很容易损耗。
Jim Cicconi, who oversaw the use of autopens for President George H.W. Bush, recalls that the plastic signature templates for the machines — yes, there was more than one autopen — would wear out from repeated use.
笔迹鉴定者史蒂芬·柯什尔两年前出版了一本关于总统使用自动签名机签名的指南。他称前总统罗纳德·里根有22个不同的签名模版,包括包括“Ron”,“Dutch”,以及其它类似的签名等等,以增加“假签名”的真实感。
Ronald Reagan had 22 different signature templates, including "Ron," "Dutch" and other iterations, to boost the aura of authenticity surrounding his fake signatures, says Stephen Koschal, an autograph authenticator who two years ago published a guide to presidential autopen signatures.

柯什尔还说,他拜访前副总统丹·奎尔位于国会大厦的办公室时,发现了一张老布什总统赠出的签名照,签名明显是自动签名机写的。

Obama took the presidential autopen out of the closet and into a new realm.
上个月,奥巴马在欧洲访问期间,下令华盛顿的工作人员用自动签名机为他签署《爱国者法案》某些条款的延长决定。因为这些条款在最后时刻才在国会通过,总统如不立即签署生效就会作废。由于奥巴马远在法国,只能求助于自动签名机。
While traveling in Europe last month, Obama directed his staff in Washington to use an autopen to sign into law an extension of certain Patriot Act powers to fight terrorism. The legislation had been approved by Congress at the last minute, and there was no time to fly it to France for Obama's signature before the anti-terrorism powers expired.
据称,总统借用自动签名机签署法案,这在历史上首开先例。美国政府官员曾透露,自动签名机通常用于更加私人化的普通信件,因为它们无需亲笔签名。
It was believed to be the first time a president has used an autopen to sign legislation. Autopen signatures generally are reserved for more personalized correspondence that doesn't score a real signature, say officials from administrations past.
