DENVER (AP) - A director with Colorado’s health-care exchange is on paid leave after it was discovered she has been accused of stealing from a nonprofit housing organization she oversaw in Montana.

Christa McClure is the director of partner engagement for Connect for Health Colorado, the state program that implements the Affordable Care Act.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/l9bukop ), program spokesman Ben Davis says in her Colorado job, McClure does not have access to any of exchange’s finances.

The eight-count indictment against McClure was filed in U.S. District Court in Billings, Mont., in January. McClure pleaded not guilty Feb. 6 and was released pending trial.

Prosecutors allege McClure embezzled federal grant money and took money from prospective homeowners in the Housing Montana program over a two-year period ending in April 2012.
