Michael Steele, the former lieutenant governor of Maryland, unsuccessful Senate candidate and gaffe-prone former chairman of the Republican National Committee,  will be joining the board of directors of Eniware LLC, a company that sells  medical sterilization equipment. According to a spokesman for the company, he will not be lobbying for them. Instead Steele, who never studied medicine, will “help the company grow.”

According to an emailed press release:

“Michael Steele is a visionary and iconic leader. He has blazed many trails in his career, and Eniware looks forward to benefiting from his wisdom and expertise,” said James Bernstein, MD, CEO of Eniware. “Michael’s guidance will be an invaluable asset in Eniware’s quest to make safe surgery a reality for the 60% of the world’s population without electricity.”

“Eniware is an extraordinary company with an urgent mission,” said Michael Steele, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee. “I feel fortunate to join such a vital and necessary enterprise. Eniware’s portable sterilization technology will make a tremendous impact on lives around the globe.”
