The Twitter account for Herman Cain stunned many people among the Democrats when it started tweeting again 2 weeks after Herman’s death.
Several liberals made snarky comments.
Sarah Cooper wrote “So, let me get this straight. You think the Biden candidacy is going to be nuts and you’re saying this FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE SINCE YOU DIED TWO WEEKS AGO”
George Conway wrote “obviously Trump is going to say Cain’s tweet is evidence that hydroxychloroquine, Lysol, and UV light actually work, and you’re going to do the video”
Of course, neither of these were accurate.
The account, which now goes by the name “The Cain Gang” is being run by Herman Cain’s daughter Melania Cain Gallo.
Melanie explains in a piece posted to HermanCain.com that “My dad wanted his work to continue: Here’s how we, his team, are going to honor his wish”
She wrote: 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.
That’s especially true with the state of the world as it is now. It’s more than just the election campaign. Dad was the most positive thinker I ever knew, and one of his favorite things to do was to help people find their way to happiness in their own lives.
He based that on three principles: 1. Something to Do (Work Life, Joy) 2. Someone to Love (Everybody) 3. Something to Hope For (America, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness).
As much as we enjoy bringing you information about the news of the day, these are the things that really drove my dad, and he would have wanted this platform to continue giving people reasons to feel that hope as we continue to tell you what you need to know about what’s going on in the country.
So we will continue. We’ve decided here at Cain HQ that we will go on using this platform to share the information and ideas he believed in. He often talked about the site going on once he was ready to step away from it. We had hoped he could enjoy reading it in his retirement, but he made it clear he wanted it to go on.
