Unusual California Radio Ad Warns Against Signing Initiative Petitions on Grounds of ID Theft

An unusual radio in California warns voters against signing petitions for ballot initiatives on the grounds that signers might be exposed to identity theft. This ad is posted here because such ads tend to disappear after campaigns are over. In this case, the ad appears to be an effort to discourage signing of a "paycheck protection" initiative which would make it difficult for labor unions to use dues money for political campaigns. (Two prior initiatives of this type have appeared on the California ballot but neither passed.) There have been ads before asking voters not to sign a particular initiative petition and giving arguments against that particular initiative. See, for example, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuS6SeYt04I This ad, however, appears to be the first one discouraging signing any initiative petition. The group behind the ad established a website at http://www.californiansagainstidentitytheft.org (Californians Against Identity Theft)
