UPDATED: Sledd was officially listed as member of McDonnell's Cabinet

Anita Kumar

If we had any doubts before, we don't anymore.

Gov. Bob McDonnell's Website has finally been corrected to list Jim Cheng -- not Robert Sledd -- as secretary of commerce and trade.

You'll remember that less than a day after being inaugurated, McDonnell dropped Sledd as his secretary nominee under pressure from Democratic lawmakers.

But instead of totally removing Sledd from the Website, the Richmond businessman has merely been moved down the list as senior economic advisor and member of the Cabinet.

We already told you that McDonnell is having Sledd attend daily Cabinet meetings and that he has an office alongside McDonnell's in the Patrick Henry Building.

UPDATED: McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin called to let us know that Sledd is not a member of the Cabinet and was mistakenly listed on the Website. His name will be removed.
