Is it against the law to take FLMA leave to work a second job full time?

That's against the purpose of FMLA leave. Your employer could fire you.

Quit the first job if it is so insufficient that you need a second full time job.

It contradicts the purpose of FLMA which is to provide you with protection from termination of your employment in the event you have to take time off due for medical/family emergencies. A second job is not covered under the FLMA.
