‘Money Wins Elections’ interactive by Tony Chu

A parallax presentation, and nice demo of the principle of progressive enhancement.

Quoting my colleague Steven Connor: “If you look at it on old IE you get none of the fancy Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) but you still get the key facts and arguments laid out reasonably nicely as you scroll down because this key content is done as styled up text in HTML”.
