Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has already admitted to receiving and not disclosing gifts from former Star Scientific CEO and donor Jonnie Williams over the course of several years.

But the federal indictment slapping McDonnell and wife Maureen with corruption charges provides some eye-popping details on just how much of an extravagant lifestyle the McDonnell's allegedly leaned on Williams to pay for.

From shopping sprees at high-priced designer stores to thousands in golf expenses and merchandise, the amount Williams eagerly shelled out to the couple and their family is impressive.

Here's a handy guide to some of the tens of thousands in goodies, gifts, checks and leisure the McDonnell family allegedly enjoyed courtesy of one very wealthy businessman.

$50,000

Business loan to MoBo Real Estate Partners, a Virginia Beach vacation rental company partly owned by Bob McDonnell.

$50,000

Personal loan to the McDonnells.

$15,000

Catering for McDonnell's daughter Cailin's wedding.

$10,999

Shopping spree at Oscar de la Renta. According to the indictment, the couple would have to turn over if convicted:

  • Two Gold Oscar de la Renta dresses
  • Gold Oscar de le Renta sweater
