Mr. Norment is the first Republican caught up in the turmoil gripping Richmond since last week, when it came to light that Gov. Ralph Northam's profile page in his 1984 medical school yearbook had a photo of a man in blackface standing beside someone in a Ku Klux Klan outfit.
Tyson has said she was not politically motivated to come out and share her story.
