    Re: Presidential use of the autopen

    In any case, it's a moot point. Bills that have been approved by both houses of Congress automatically become law without the president's signature after 10 days, unless the president vetoes them or unless Congress has adjourned in the interim. So in most cases it wouldn't even matter if the autopen was a "legitimate" signature or not.

    Anyone can use an autopen like the people who go into natl archives and change document words.

    I do not agree with ‘autopen’ when it comes to signing bills but, what do you expect from presidents?
    They could give a…’fffffff
