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.

My question is....How many times was it returned to Microsoft to repair the RROD?....I'm sorry....it had to be asked.
