Herman Cain, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate who died after contracting COVID-19, is continuing to denounce to Democratic politicians on social media two weeks after his death.
"Just in case you thought Biden's candidacy was going to be anything other than completely nuts, team Trump has released a new video," read the first post on Cain's Twitter account since an Aug. 7 one that shared the time of his funeral.
"How well prepared is Kamala Harris for the presidency? We take a look. We're not impressed and you won't be either," read a post added to his Facebook account on Wednesday.
"Harris has a ton of baggage and a political glass jaw. She's awful," read a post added Thursday.
The flurry of political posts on his social media accounts is the work of Cain's daughter Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo.
On her father's website, she explained "he wouldn’t have wanted that work to stop with his passing."
"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."
She wrote that Cain's voice is "needed now more than ever."
"We are his team, and he’ll always be our leader. He would have wanted us to do this. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do," she said.
The name of Cain's Twitter account was changed to "The Cain Gang" Thursday morning, though the handle remains as @THEHermanCain.
"Dad came up with this name himself," Cain Gallo wrote. "As usual, he had the best branding ideas and we see no reason to try to improve on it."
The former Godfather's Pizza CEO died four weeks after being hospitalized with COVID-19. A Black Voices for Trump co-chair., Cain attended President Donald Trump's June 20 rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he was seen without a mask in close proximity to others. It is unknown if he contracted the virus at the event.
Many Twitter users were confused by the continued use of Cain's accounts, while others found it to be in bad taste.

"Is it just me or is tweeting from a dead person's account at the very least creepy," tweeted Fox affiliate WNYW's Steve Chenevey.
"The whole Herman Cain thing just reveals how ghoulish, bizarre, and inhuman the modern Right has become. The man died unnecessarily going to an underwhelming rally, was completely forgotten by his own party, and then his name and social media cultivated for profit," wrote political analyst Jared Sexton.
Others said Twitter should no longer mark the account as verified because Cain was dead.
A number of macabre jokes were also posted in response to the posts on Cain's accounts.
Herman Cain left behind a box of demo tweets that are being remixed and released by his label.

Former National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch decried the criticism.
"The same left that ghoulishly celebrated Hermain Cain's death now want to act like the people still running his account are doing so in bad taste," Loesch tweeted, admonishing liberals for not being consistent.
