The Washington Post treated Kavanaugh far differently than the Democrat Lt. Governor of Virginia.
If the Washington Post didn’t have double standards, it would have no standards at all.
Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s office issued a statement Monday rejecting claims by a woman who alleges he sexually assaulted her in 2004, when they both attended the Democratic National Convention.
Almost as notable as Fairfax’s denial is the fact that the Washington Post was first approached by the alleged victim more than a year ago and decided not to publish her story. The Post explained Monday that it declined to report the woman’s allegations due to an absence of corroborating evidence.

It's funny how editorial standards change, depending on the target’s party affiliation.
