If corporations were taking votes from their rank and file on how to donate money, you might have a point. But they don't. This just empowers the board of directors to spend corporate funds to influence elections. Run-of-the-mill stock holders and rank and file employees have no say. That's not a case of "free associations of people" agreeing on how to pool their money. Also, money is not the same thing as speech.
