YOU ARE THE ADVICE COLUMNIST: My Mom Is Getting Too Close To My Childhood Friend

Should I intervene or ask my mom about this relationship?

It has recently come to my attention that my mother has been interacting with an old "childhood friend" in what I would deem an inappropriate way.  The two of them have been shamelessly flirting over Facebook (an example comment was him teasing her for texting him too late at night) and my mom seems to be talking about this man constantly.  I also recently discovered that she had lent him a sum of money, even though her and my father have been struggling financially.  
Should I intervene or ask my mom about this relationship? I don't want to get involved to the point of telling my father, but I know that if the roles were reversed she'd be pissed.
