I think it actually is... they make you swear you won't do that when you donate.

If you accept money, or have someone give you money to donate, then yes it would be. However, the OP didn't say he'd send anyone money so they could turn around and take that money to give to the campaign. If the OP freely wishes to 'match' one contribution with another to something else that's completely unattached to the campaign, I'd think he/she is freely able to do so.

It can not possibly be ILLEGAL. Someone can give me money legally. As a matter of fact, they can legally give me $10,000 and I do not even have to pay tax on it. What I do with it after that is also legal, like if I decided to give $2300. to the campaign. That would be my business. It has nothing to do with if the person who gave me the money as a gift, has already contributed to the campaign or not. That is just plain silly.
