That's at least the news over at KMOX, where the radio station reports that the St. Louis ACORN office has permanently closed.

Daily RFT tried calling ACORN at its Manchester Road office yesterday. We got the same vague phone recording that KMOX did: "the person at extension 294 is unavailable, please leave your message after the tone...."

We also tried to contact ACORN's national office, but the phone number listed on the agency's website is no longer in service. That said, we're relatively confident that the social action agency is still in business.

Why? Because they've been touting how prosecutors in Brooklyn have cleared the agency of criminal wrongdoing in those edited videos that James O'Keefe put out showing ACORN agents giving advice on how to set up a brothel.
