Turns out that Cain’s twitter account and the website in his name is being run by his family, which was explained in a post published by his daughter Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo who explained how she was continuing her father’s political mission:
“Hello. I’m Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo, and I am proud to say that Herman Cain was my dad. He believed in using his voice to teach, enlighten and give hope. It’s one of the ways he used this web site every day, and he wouldn’t have wanted that work to stop with his passing.”
Nonetheless, the posthumous tweet kind of spooked some blue checks on Twitter, who considered it not just a bit eerie, but also as an opportunity to make their own politically-minded and somewhat inappropriate jokes.
