The expensive Lincoln Town Car that helped send Dennis F. Rasmussen into early retirement four years ago is long gone, but its political ghost still haunts those who hold the Baltimore County executive's job.Wary of the big-spender symbols that helped defeat the last Democrat to occupy the office, C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger III has scotched plans to replace his official car -- a well-worn Ford sedan -- with a four-wheel drive vehicle this winter.While impoverished Baltimore City barely blinked when Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke bought both a Lincoln Town Car and a Jeep Cherokee Laredo, Mr. Ruppersberger said the climate in Baltimore County is different -- particularly in light of a projected $3.9 million deficit.
