Then you seem to misunderstand what crypto signatures actually do.

If signature check fails, then the message is not what its author 
actually wrote. IRL it's mainly SorceForge and the like injecting its 
ads into signed parts, (and the real reason google is pushing https and 
dkim so hard is it's messing with their ad revenue,) but in principle if 
the check fails the message *content* is *invalid*. Whoever the author 
and whatever the content.
