Bent Steerer, replace?

So I picked up a CL bike today. There was a little play in the headset (or so I thought) and when I took things apart to inspect, I noticed the steerer is bent. Noticed it right away too, so it's pretty cock-eyed. Is it a must that I replace the fork, or can a shop align this for me? It's a RockShox Dart1. Cheep I know, but I would rather not replace if it isn't necessary. Thanks for the help.

Replace it or try to return it to the seller. They don't call bad forks 'death forks' for nothing...
