Illustration for article titled Own The Xbox 360 That Helped Kick the Mayor of Baltimore Out of Office

Want to own a piece of Baltimore history, a bit of gaming that helped unseat a mayor of the east coast city?

The city is auctioning off an Xbox 360 that prosecutors say then-mayor Sheila Dixon purchased with gift cards meant for the poor.


The Xbox 360, and a single controller and copy of Need for Speed Carbon, are up for bid on eBay right now, with the price already hovering at $500. Proceeds from the sale will go to Youthworks of Baltimore.

The 360 was seized from Dixon's home in 2008 after allegations of embezzlement surfaced against the mayor. A jury later found Dixon guilty and she resigned from office on Feb. 4 and was ordered to perform 500 hours of community service.

She also had to give up the Xbox 360.
