Childhood, education, and early career
Steele was born on
October 19, 1958, at Andrews Air Force Basein Prince George's County. He spent his childhood in the Petworth neighborhood of Northwest Washington, D.C.which Steele has described as a small, stable and racially integrated community that insulated him from some of the problems elsewhere in the city. [ Duffy, Jim. [http://www.jhu.edu/jhumag/0405web/steele.html "Mother Knows Best"] , "Johns Hopkins Magazine", April 2005] He was one of two children raised by mother Maebell Turner and stepfather John Turner. Steele’s sister Monica later married and divorced former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.
Steele attended Archbishop Carroll Roman Catholic High School in Northeast Washington, D.C. While at Carroll, Steele participated in the Glee Club, the
National Honor Societyand many of the school’s drama productions. During his senior year, 1976-1977, he won the election for student council president.
Steele won a scholarship to
Johns Hopkins Universityin Baltimore. In his first year there, Steele was elected class president and was a member of the fencing team. He struggled academically, however, and was nearly kicked out of the university at the end of the year. After garnering A's in summer classes at George Washington University, Steele was able to continue at Johns Hopkins, and he earned a bachelor's degreein international relationsin 1981.
After college, Steele spent three years as a seminarian in the Order of St. Augustine in preparation for the priesthood. He entered the Augustinian Friars Seminary at
Villanova Universityin Pennsylvania. As a seminarian, he taught freshman world history and senior economicsfor one year at Malvern Prep School in Malvern, Pennsylvania, but ultimately decided on a career in law and he left the Seminary prior to taking the vows.
Steele then entered the
Georgetown University Law Centerand in 1991, he received his Juris Doctordegree. He worked as a corporate securities associate attorneyat the Washington, D.C. office of Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton. From 1991 to 1997, Steele specialized in financial investments for Wall Streetunderwriters, working at Cleary’s Tokyo, Japanoffice focusing on major product liability litigation and at its Londonoffice on corporate matters. Steele left the law firm and founded the Steele Group, a business and legal consulting firm.
Steele and his wife Andrea have two sons, Michael and Drew.
Steele’s mother was a widowed laundress who he stated worked for minimum wage rather than accept public assistance. Steele grew up in a Democratic household. However, as a young man he switched to the Republican Party.
After joining the Republican Party, Steele became chairman of the Prince George's County Republican Central Committee. In 1995, the Maryland Republican Party selected him as Maryland State Republican Man of the Year. He worked on several political campaigns, was an Alternate Delegate to the
1996 Republican National Conventionin San Diegoand a Delegate to the 2000 Republican National Conventionin Philadelphiathat ultimately chose the George W. Bushticket.
In December 2000, Steele was elected chairman of the Maryland Republican Party, [ [http://www.mdgop.org Maryland Republican Party] ] becoming the first African American ever to be elected chairman of any state Republican Party.
Lieutenant Governor of Maryland
In 2002, then-Congressman
Robert L. Ehrlichselected Steele as his running mate and nominee for Lieutenant Governor in the campaign against Democrat Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, who was then the Lieutenant Governor (under Governor Parris Glendening). Steele resigned his chairmanship of the Maryland Republican Party to campaign full-time, although he received payments as a Party consultant (see Controversies, below). In endorsing Townsend, the " Baltimore Sun" praised her running mate, Charles R. Larson, for his experience and expertise, and added: "By contrast, Mr. Ehrlich's running mate, state GOP chairman Michael S. Steele, brings little to the team but the color of his skin." [ [http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/bal-ed.endorsegovnov03,0,2565392.story Townsend for governor] The Baltimore Sun]
In the September primary election, Ehrlich and Steele had no serious opposition. In the November 2002 general election, even though Maryland traditionally votes Democratic and had not elected a Republican Governor in almost 40 years, the Townsend campaign was tainted by problems with outgoing governor Glendening's personal life. The Ehrlich-Steele ticket won, 51% to 48%.
Steele’s most prominent efforts for the Ehrlich administration were reforming the state’s Minority Business Enterprise program and chairing Governor Ehrlich’s Commission on Quality Education in Maryland. While opposed to the death penalty, Steele endured criticism for not standing firmly against Ehrlich's support of the punishment, despite claims of racial inequities in its administration.
Recently, Steele has attained national prominence due to his stature as a successful elected conservative Republican
African Americanand his public speaking. At the 2004 Republican National Convention, Steele gave the Republican counterpoint to the Democrats' Barack Obamain a prime timespeech, Steele's first major national exposure. In April 2005, President Bush chose Steele as one of three members of the United States delegation at the investiture of Pope Benedict XVIat the ceremonial mass in St. Peter’s Squarein Vatican City. Steele was joined by FloridaGovernor Jeb Bushand by Knights of ColumbusSupreme Knight Carl A. Anderson. Steele has appeared several times on HBO's political show " Real Time with Bill Maher", hosted by comedian Bill Maher. He appeared on Comedy Central's talk show " The Colbert Report" on January 24, 2007.
2006 campaign for U.S. Senate
Paul Sarbanes, Maryland’s longest serving United States Senator, announced in March 2005 that he would not be a candidate for re-election in 2006, top state and national Republican officials began pressing Steele to become their party's nominee for the seat. [http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/26/magazine/326steele.html?ex=1301029200en=d81046cf222230b7ei=5088partner=rssnytemc=rss&pagewanted=all Why Is Michael Steele a Republican Candidate? ] ] In April 2005 the " Baltimore Sun" announced the results of a poll it conducted, stating that Steele would run statistically neck and neck against either former NAACP head Kweisi Mfume, or Rep. Benjamin L. Cardinof Baltimore County.
October 25, 2005, Steele formally announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. Polling in February 2006 showed the Lieutenant Governor lost significant ground against Cardin, although he remained statistically even with Mfume.

In early 2006, Steele's campaign had some high-level resignations. Campaign manager,
Graham Shaferleft in January, and communications director and spokesman Leonardo Alcivarleft in February.
Steele lost the general election to Cardin on
November 7, 2006, getting 44% of the vote to Cardin's 55%. "The Washington Post" reported that on election day the Steele campaign arranged for buses of low income people from Philadelphia to distribute fliers at polls. Some claim the flyers had incorrect information, including an implication that Michael Steele was a Democrat and that he was endorsed by prominent black leaders who had not, in fact, endorsed him.

After the Senate race
Chris Cillizza of the "

August 7, 2006, Steele released answers to a "Baltimore Sun" candidate survey.Fact|date=March 2008 In those answers he lays out his position on a variety of issues.
* On the war in Iraq: "It is imperative we improve conditions on the ground so we can bring our troops home as quickly as possible and have the Iraqi people take control of their own destiny. At the same time, we should not publicly state a timetable for implementation. I do not support a 'cut and run strategy.' Any politician out there talking about timetables and timelines is playing into the hands of our enemies who have an enormous capacity to wait. It would be a disaster for us to cut and run, as it would destroy our credibility in the region for at least a generation. At the same time, it is the Iraqi’s themselves that will ultimately have to make democracy work in their country. We should stay there only long enough to give the Iraqi people the tools they need to secure the very democracy they voted for three times. After that, it’s up to them."
* Energy policy: "To provide immediate relief for Marylanders, I have called on President Bush and Congress to enact an immediate moratorium on the federal gas tax - more than 18 cents per gallon - and an immediate moratorium on the 24 cents per gallon diesel tax. Moreover, Congress should approve legislation to suspend the tariff on ethanol imports. But those actions are designed to deal with our immediate crisis. Congress must roll up its sleeves and work to solve the underlying problem - our dependence on foreign sources of energy. To do that, I’ve called on Congress to double President Bush’s budget request for biomass and bio-refinery research, and create market and tax incentives for E85 fuels, hybrid technologies and alternative energy sources. Tax credits for hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles need to be renewed and expanded. Additionally, we must increase fuel efficiency standards for automobiles – not just this year, but over the next several years."
* Affirmative action: "Studies show enormous disparities still exist in education, healthcare, employment and economic opportunities along racial lines in the United States. I believe programs are still necessary to help close these divides. I support giving people opportunities. Programs must be fair to all Marylanders – of every color – and they should focus on economic empowerment."
* The budget deficit: "Congress must also enact pro-growth policies that encourage the economy to expand: like making tax relief permanent and repealing the death tax. As we saw with the most recent deficit figures, a growing economy will in fact reduce the size of the budget deficit. In order to achieve optimal economic growth, Congress must adhere to sane spending guidelines while promoting smart policies devoted to growing businesses and creating jobs."
* Stem cell research: "We have a lot to gain through furthering stem cell research, but medical breakthroughs should be fundamentally about saving, not destroying, human life. Therefore, I support stem cell research that does not destroy the embryo."
* Health care: " We need to increase access to health insurance through Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and high deductible policies, so individuals and families can purchase the insurance that's best for them and meets their specific needs. . . . I support allowing small businesses to band together and compete for better insurance options. . . . To help increase our nation’s seniors access to affordable care, I have called to extend the sign up period for the Medicare Prescription Drug plan."
Oreo cookie incident

Reprinted [http://www.leftandright.us/archives/2005/11/archive_back_to.html here] .] Five days after the debate, Steele said that one or more Oreo cookies had rolled to his feet during the debate suggesting a raciststatement against him. "Maybe it was just someone having their snack, but it was there," Steele said. "If it happened, shame on them if they are that immature and that threatened by me."At the time of the debate, Schurick had not mentioned any such incident, but in November 2005 he claimed "It was raining Oreos... They were thick in the air like locusts. I was there. It was very real. It wasn't subtle."Andrew A.

Steele admitted during the election in 2002 that sometime during his early career he had financial difficulties.Fact|date=March 2008 The Maryland Republican Party began paying Steele $5,000 a month in consulting fees shortly after his selection as gubernatorial candidate Robert L. Ehrlich Jr's running mate.Fact|date=March 2008 Democrats said the payments raised ethical questions, specifically that it appeared the Republicans had "hired themselves a candidate".Fact|date=March 2008 The Republican Party defended the payments by saying that Steele was hired to continue performing his duties as party chairman since his replacement was not prepared to take over yet. Steele admitted that his consulting business, formed in 1999, had been struggling, partly because many clients did not pay their bills.Fact|date=March 2008
In 2004, Steele accepted over $13,000 in campaign contributions from the board members of non-profit organizations shortly after Steele's office had directed $250,000 in unrestricted grants to those same groups. According to a 2006

In July of 2005, Maryland Governor
Bob Ehrlich, a Republican, came under criticism for hosting a $1,000-a-head golf outing at a golf club, Elkridge Hunt Club, that has no minority members. Doug Duncan, Ehrlich's potential Democratic opponent in the 2006 gubernatorial elections, accused Ehrlich of "trying to divide us" and called for him to publicly apologize "for holding this event at a club that discriminates." [http://www.dougduncan.com/node/33]
Lt. Governor Steele responded to the outcry by saying, "I don't know that much about the club, the membership, nor do I care, quite frankly, because I don't play golf." Adrienne A. Jones, Speaker Pro Tempore of the
Maryland House of Delegates, called Steele's dismissal of the controversy "a slap in the face of those of us who are African Americans."

tem cell comparison
When discussing his position on embryonic
stem cells before Jewish leaders on February 9, 2006, Steele compared the science with experiments performed on Jews during the Holocaustand with slavery.Fact|date=March 2008 He said, "You of all folks know what happens when people decide they want to experiment on human beings...I know that as well in my community, out of our experience with slavery, and so I'm very cautious when people say this is the best new thing, this is going to save lives."Fact|date=March 2008
Art Abramson, executive director of the Baltimore Jewish Council, criticized Steele for his remarks, rejecting the comparison "between ethical and lifesaving medical research, and the horrors committed by the
Nazis in their evil drive to create a master race." Steele was also criticized by his opponent in the 2006 U.S. Senate election, Congressman Ben Cardin, who is Jewish and a supporter of embryonic stem-cell research.
