Ginni Thomas, the wife of Clarence Thomas whose 1991 U.S. Supreme Court nomination was nearly derailed by allegations of sexual harrassment, has an “exclusive interview” with Herman Cain in her column for the conservative Daily Caller.

The video interview, filmed Wednesday evening, kicks off with Cain responding to the question of whether reporters are “setting [him] up to be ‘guilty until proven innocent.’” (It’s never directly stated, but one assumes this question alludes to the recent sexual harassment allegations against Cain.)

“That is the D.C. culture,” Cain agrees. “Guilty until proven innocent.”

Although Ginni Thomas’s personal history with sexual harassment made headlines as little as a year ago, when she called her husband’s accuser Anita Hill to ask for an apology, Thomas doesn’t mention her experience in the interview.
