CHICAGO, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A Chicago radio morning show pulled a "Win a Date With Drew" slot intended to find a date for Drew Peterson, whose fourth wife has been missing since October.

Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky made a surprise call to Steve Dahl's WJMK-FM, Chicago, morning show Wednesday, suggesting the contest in what he told WBBM-AM, Chicago, was an attempt to soften the image of his client, a former Bolingbrook police sergeant.

Brodsky responded to criticisms Drew Peterson is still technically married, saying, "What's good for the goose is good for the gander," apparently responding to allegations Stacy Peterson was involved with another man, the Chicago Sun-Times said Thursday.

Peterson is quoted in the Sun-Times saying his questions for potential dates included, "Do you have any tattoos and are they spelled correctly" and other off-color queries of a sexual nature.

Thursday's Chicago Tribune said Dahl and WJMK General Manager Peter Brown decided to pull the slot.

"After I got off the air (with Brodsky) and thought it through, it just didn't seem like something I wanted to do," Dahl said.
