O'Keefe's nonprofit advocacy group, "Project Veritas," attempted to show the state had weak voter identification laws during the 2012 elections by giving supporters the names of dead Granite Staters, then sending them into polling places where they received ballots.
A web video of the incidents went public, inciting controversy. The move helped prompt the then-Republican-led Legislature to strengthen the state's voter ID law last year.
"They are trying to cannibalize journalism," O'Keefe said.
O'Keefe devoted a chapter in his book — "Breakthrough: Our Guerrilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy" — to Head. Head, he added, refused to sign the chapter in his book, a New York Times best seller.
