This is actually a feature:

,----[ C-h k " ]
| " runs the command TeX-insert-quote
|    which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `tex'.
| (TeX-insert-quote FORCE)
| Insert the appropriate quote marks for TeX.
| Inserts the value of `TeX-open-quote' (normally ``) or `TeX-close-quote'
| (normally '') depending on the context.  If `TeX-quote-after-quote'
| is non-nil, this insertion works only after ".
| With prefix argument FORCE, always inserts " characters.

Within LaTeX mode, you usually want to insert quotes like `` and ''.
So LaTeX mode binds these insertions to the " key.  The quote " is
still available by pressing the " key twice.  You can change this
behavior by setting TeX-quote-after-quote to t.
