The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the federal Office of Inspector General are investigating cases of Head Start staff members in Danbury admitting 5 unqualified children into the federally funded program.  According to the Newstimes, an internal investigation of operations was launched after the arrest of Director Monica Bevilacqua for alleged embezzlement from a Brookfield PTO.  The audit didn't turn up wrongdoing on her part at Head Start, but the fraud by 4 others.  One staff member has resigned and three others are being asked to resign.  If they don't CEO Jim Maloney says they'll be fired.  He told the Newstimes it was done as favor to the families, and there was no evidence of bribery.  He declined to name the employees.
