Domaingue . . . yesterday was asked to leave Town Hall property after he was seen brandishing signs accusing Kie of being a drug-dealer, a rapist and a former member of a motorcycle gang called the Warlocks.
Domaingue, who called himself a “career criminal,” is also a former resident of the town. He owned a number of businesses in town in the 1970s, according to Eagle files. But in the 1960s, he was a founding member of the Warlocks and he has since spent at least 17 years in prison on various charges, including a conviction for a fight and stabbing at the former Mundy’s Bar in Glendale in 1976.
Yesterday, Domaingue said he “hated” his brother-in-law and did not want to see him elected selectman.
“It’s a personal thing,” he said.
According to the Eagle, Kie was unavailable for comment.
However, in previous interviews with The Eagle, Kie has never denied his checkered past, but indicated that his problems were largely confined to his youth in the 1970s: He was indicted for rape in 1972, but was acquitted; he was sentenced to three to four years in Walpole State Prison for selling drugs in 1975; and for several years in the late 1960s and early 1970s, he was an admitted member of the Warlocks.
Free speech is a many-splendored thing.
