But lately he's been setting his sights higher.
For the past few weeks he's been airing a series of reports on Miami-Dade County employees' use of government-owned take-home vehicles.
Miami-Dade County allows 3,011 employees to take county-owned vehicles home, Local 10 has learned.In one of his reports, Weinsier caught a county employee using her take-home car to go to the gym in Coral Springs.
Miami-Dade County sends more vehicles home with employees than Duval, Hillsborough, Orange and Broward counties combined.
Of those county-owned vehicles, 509 are driven to residences outside Miami-Dade. It's a practice costing the county $8 million at a time when budgets are bare.
Newly elected Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez plans on putting the brakes on vehicles going home.
It appears his reports have struck a nerve.
Today Weinsier reported:
"Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez fired off a sternly worded letter (see below) Monday to all department heads.Great job, Jeff!
In the letter, Gimenez ordered those department heads to review each and every county take-home vehicle in their departments by Sept. 9.
"Take-home vehicles that are primarily used to commute to and from work will be rescinded," the mayor said in the letter.
