“Win a Date with Drew Peterson”

I don’t follow Greta’s missing-person-of-the-week program, so I didn’t really know the details of this case until today. The only reason it has come to my attention is because the alleged murderer, Drew Peterson, is a colossally stupid asshole. And his lawyer seems to be equally idiotic.

Apparently, they wanted him to do a radio competition where women try to win a date with him. It sounds like this never moved beyond the “hey, maybe we could” stage, as station officials stomped on it quick. Still, pretty creepy.

Hours after radio host Steve Dahl agreed to the suggestion by Joel Brodsky, the attorney for former Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, WJMK-FM officials said the game would not take place.”Steve never intended on doing this promotion or any promotion that would put his listeners in harm’s way,” station vice president/general manager Peter Bowen said in a prepared statement.

Peterson is being investigated for the deaths of his third and fourth wives.
