Mark Dickinson added the comment:

This is expected behaviour for Python 2.x:  Python interprets every TAB 
character as advancing to the next multiple-of-8 column, regardless of how your 
editor sees it.  It would be too disruptive to change this behaviour in Python 

It's already fixed in Python 3: there it's a syntax error to mix tabs and 
spaces in this way.  Python 2.7 gives a warning if you run with the '-3' flag.
