Put another way

Let's say I've got a friend (I do!) and this particular friend wants to have sex with a mentally unstable (but not dangerous) woman in a committed relationship. He persuades her to do so, and she betrays her boyfriend to have sex with this friend. This friend has no intention of an ongoing relationship with the woman - he just wants sex, and tells her so all along.

Obviously she's morally (or ethically, if you prefer) culpable for betraying a trust. Is the friend who had sex with her morally or ethically culpable for a wrong act, and if so - what?

The comparison's a bad one, here, because Bush supporter didn't know what Bush's specific unethical acts were going to be, and they didn't have the same control over participating in them. (And some of them apparently don't judge his acts unethical...)

In this case, the person in question knows what the unethical act is, and is the pivotal in making that act happen.
