A considerable amount of code is a lot older than PEP 8, some even over a decade older. Even newer code in the stdlib does not conform to PEP 8 for multiple reasons, e.g. external modules was incorporated into the stdlib.

PEP 8 sections "Introduction" and "A Foolish Consistency is the Hobgoblin of Little Minds" explain why parts stdlib do not follow PEP 8.
